Need easier instructions (3 posts)

    Installed it but am very frustrated. I don't know what to do and why I have so many messages that I don't understand. The video on the developer's page didn't show me step-by-step what I need to do. I'm lost and maybe I'll go with the plugin recommended by GoDaddy called P3Profiler.

    P3Profiler is a great plugin, but it doesn't fix anything, it just tells you what is wrong, and I've actually found issues that the w3tc couldn't help with just because one plugin happened to be junk, or maybe I had some inefficient code in my theme.

    Maybe check out this video - hopefully it's a little easier to follow

    Also, I found this article to be pretty detailed.

    If you're on shared hosting, you only want to enable page caching, browser caching, and minify (set to manual). Leave the rest disabled.

    I guess I'm just a big dummy! I have two clients with very slow loading shopping cart sites. In addition to making their sites faster, I was going to recommend this plugin in my Examiner column! But I have to learn how to use it first before I can teach others.

    I've barely done anything with the installation and I have 4 messages in yellow bars and one in pink. I don't even understand what these messages mean. It's overwhelming!!!

    I will be out of office today but will try to follow the instructions in the links you posted tomorrow. Thank you for taking the time to help me.
