[resolved] "Deselect this option to disable all caching functionality." Clar (4 posts)

    The "Deselect this option to disable all caching functionality" setting on the general setting page is super confusing. Aside from being convoluted wording, it would seem to mean that deselecting this box leaves your site without caching functionality.

    Since I want caching, I select the checkbox under general.

    When I select it, CDN also becomes selected, but I do not use CDN so I get a notice to set up CDN.

    Deselecting CDN also deselects the "General" checkbox, which seemingly means "all caching functionality" is disabled. AHHHHHHH!

    How does one avoid deselecting the box that says "Deselect this option to disable all caching functionality" but still deselect CDN functionality?

    I have to agree, I am new to this plugin and this scenario is confusing to me as well. Clicking 'deploy' says the preview settings were deployed but then the screen says that 'Preview mode is active'. Then I also went through the loop that was described by calpernia. I think that things are working but this is a little confusing and needs a little clarification.

    Yes, this IS extremely confusing. I love this plugin, but this really needs fixing.
