• This is probably the worst optimization plugin I have ever tried. Lately, I found some problems on a customer site. The header/slider image did not load properly. Nitropack prevented not only the image from loading but also the cookie banner from popping up. On paper, performance was awesome with a loading time of 260 milliseconds. Which is, of course, impossible when using the Enfold theme. And it did absolutely not FEEL like 260 milliseconds, but more that 4 seconds. After removing Nitropack, everything loaded propery, and the loading time “increased” to 1.4 seconds, which is a realistic value.

    Now, don’t say: “Your settings were wrong!” This might be, but I exspect an optimization plugin to work properly out-of-the-box. So many cache plugins really make things worse, if you don’t find the right settings. This is why I prefer “Cache Enabler”. Yes, it is not as powerful as WP-Rocket, but it never fails. Just activate it, and you are good to go.
