It's crap. It slowed my website down

It's crap. It slowed my website down. I use Avada theme.

By , for WP 4.3.1

After reading the reviews decided to give it a shot. Moments later we are completely offline and unable to restart our servers. I'll change my review if support proves helpful.

Terribly slowed my site down.
By , for WP 4.3.1

Plugin really slowed my site down. It was taken ages to get from one page to another. Once uninstalled everything works fine. Google page rank got higher though. I will test it in the future with different websites but it didn't do anything good at the moment.

Totally break all site layout

Took Down My Site
By , for WP 4.2.4

I installed this plugin because of the great ratings and I needed to Configure my Etags, but after I installed it and selected all 3 options and hit Save, my site was unresponsive. After about 5 minutes I removed the plugin and everything was back to normal. Maybe I didn't wait long enough for it to work? I also have WP Fastest Cache installed - maybe that effected it? Not sure. Wish the plugin worked for me.

Does not work with Avada and/or Gravity Forms

This plugin adds adware in the code without the user's knowledge. Generating bad display the web, and worsening SEO

Broke the website and does not work with Age Verify
By , for WP 3.9.2

This plugin was tested on a production website and worked well. Therefore I installed it on the live website, where it worked fine... (still works fine -- go figure). No one visiting, except me?

Unfortunately, of course, 12 or so hours later no one can get on the website through the age-gate, plus the CSS is completely broken, once one is (thankfully!) able to login to the admin to see the damage.

Ticked off the CSS options. Worked okay for another 12 hours... breaks the age-gate again.

It's not a good look. It's a bucket of crap. Makes you look bad with client. Wouldn't install it. Hopefully, it won't be a problem to uninstall.
