Support » Plugin: Autoptimize » Why require a cache plugin?

    An urgent recommendation to install a cache plugin appeared on the plugin page in the admin panel. Why do I need to do this when Autoptimize even has a feature called “clear cache”?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    because AO caches optimized CSS/ JS, but does not do page caching and you do want page caching as the helps improve “server response time” tremendously πŸ™‚

    hope this clarifies,

    @optimizingmatters It’s strange that before now such a notification did not appear in the plugin. So what is the best cache plugin for interacting with Autoptimize?

    well, the recommendation to use a page caching plugin has featured on the Autoptimize main page here on wordpress.org for ages, but the check & notification indeed is new πŸ™‚

    I would recommend KeyCDN Cache Enabler (easy to use, efficient, well written and actively developed) or WP Super Cache (the grand-daddy of page caching, still maintained by the original developer who now works for Automattic).

    @optimizingmatters What should be the optimal settings for KeyCDN Cache Enabler and WP Super Cache so that they do not conflict with Autoptimize?

    no conflicts that I can think of for WPSC, disable HTML opt. for KeyCDN, that should be it πŸ™‚
