  • Hello, cuz my site is loading a bit slow, maybe cuz alot of plugins and effects, should i use cache plugin with super cache?
    I have alot of plugins giving – last seen project, likes, unlikes, add friends, and etc. Alot of things like that. Are they going to be updated correctly if i enable cache plugin or i shouldn’t?

    Yes. If a host does not offer back-end caching, I add two plugins for caching, autoptimize and comet cache. If you’re already using WP Super Cache, continue with that, but try adding autoptimize to the mix.

    I have installed W3 Total Cache, cuz it’s part of my server tutorial. But the pages are loading more slow than before?

    Make sure you have *only one* caching plugin.

    If W3TC is not speeding up your site, I recommend asking at https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/w3-total-cache#new-post so the plugin’s developers and support community can help you with this.

    I’m not sure how they will help, i have follow tutorial from my server how to set the plugin, and the pages was loading like 3-4 secs. 🙂
    Yea, i don’t have any other cache plugin. Which you offer me? i cannot use Super Cache plugin, cuz it wants me to change my permalink structure and i cannot do that.

    I’ve installed Autoptimize, should i use this plugin alone? Could it help to load the site better?
    How should i set it?

    Please read the autoptimize settings page. You need to understand how it works.

    I don’t know (nor do I really care) about the tutorial you followed. Check with the W3TC folks if you need help with the plugin.

    Meantime, post a link to your site.

    Please, please, please… ASK IN THE PLUGINS’ SUPPORT AREAS.

    The issue with your site is that I see 3.71 seconds as the time to first byte. This indicates, to me, that your server is either overly busy or under powered.

    Your page is also 10.6MB. That’s quite large. You might want to optimize some images.

    Most likely “The Grid” Plugin is heavy, that shows first pages. All my images are normally under 200kb. That’s wbhy i’m searching for some plugin which can help a bit. How did u check those stats by the way?

    I don’t know if that Inodes can slow my site.
