Support » Plugins and Hacks » W3 Total Cache – Error: Are you sure you want to do this?

  • Hi guys,

    I am trying out W3 Total Cache, but when I try to deploy I get to a page where it says: “Are you sure you want to do this?” and then there is a link saying Please try again, which does not help if clicked.

    I have seen very few other posts about this and none offered a solution.

    I’m trying this on a plain installation of WP 3.2.1. Haven’t even added a post or another plugin. W3 Total Cache is the *only* thing I have installed there.

    Can anyone please help?

    Many thanks!

  • There is bug with deploy button under General area in the plugin. Try using the deploy button in the yellow field in the header.

    @cyonite is right.

    I have the exact same problem with a couple of websites I’m developing. Whether I press deploy on the yellow bar or under the “General” tab, please can you advise? Thanks

    Yes, me too. My registration page caused a recent error for no reason. Removed the W3 Total cache (after trying everything else) and I got it backup.

    I had another site hacked that had used the w3 total cache plugin. Looks like there’s a vulnerability.

    The original issue is due to a nonce mistake and is fixed in the next release.

    As for security issues I’m keen to hear more specifics please.

    @frederick: Wondering if this been fixed, cause i’m getting the same message as described above.

    W3TC version:
    Wordpress version: 3.4.1


    Look for the next release soon.

    For anyone else stumbling on this page, just disable preview mode instead of deploying.
