  • Hello,

    Since installing W3 Total Cache our site has generally been much quicker, with exception of the homepage which is now taking nearly 10 seconds to load. We have set it up with CDN from Amazon CloudFront, and use a lot of images on the homepage, so we expected to see some benefit more or less straight away – instead the homepage is now slower than before.

    My question is, could it have something to do with the following entries in the “Never cache the following pages” section on the “Page Cache Settings” page:


    The two entries appeared as default when we installed the plugin, so I have been relucant to remove them without checking first…

    Would removing them do the trick?

  • I have those settings on my blog and the home page is cached.

    If you View Source on the home page, you should see something like this at the bottom

    If it’s there, the page is being cached, then your problem is something else, like configuration with Amazon

    Would removing them do the trick?


    If caching is running correctly, and you minified your JS + CSS, then you need to look at reducing the file size of images or other objects on the page or even reducing the number of posts on the home page to make the page faster.
