Support » Plugin: Blackhole for Bad Bots » The plugin needs page caching off

  • The page caching off is not an option for professional site in my opinion. Definitelly not for our sites and it would be nice to state this requirement clearly on the plugin description page.

    Yes the requirement for cache plugins is mentioned about halfway down the homepage:

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/blackhole-bad-bots/

    Where it says:

    “Using a caching plugin? Check out the Installation notes for important info.”

    And then there is tons more information about what this plugin can and can’t do, requirements, cache plugin infos, and everything else on the linked Installation page.

    So the plugin lets people know clearly about the “no page cache” requirement, including several mentions elsewhere in the documentation, FAQs, Help tab, and so forth.

    Bottom line: If your site needs a page-cache plugin, then Blackhole is not for you. For all other sites, Blackhole is a great way to stop bad bots (as evidenced by over 10K happy users).

    Either way, thanks so much for jumping in with your feedback, always appreciated.
