Speed up your site (BIG time!) — Quick Cache provides reliable page caching for WordPress. Easy-to-use (very simple installation).
This is an update on a poor review I gave this plugin about two weeks ago.
It seems that all problems with the recent update were related to not having PHP5.3 running on your host's server.
The plugin developers have addressed that problem and apologised for any inconvenience caused so that's good.
When the PHP version problem arose I searched for another caching plugin to use, but no other plugin comes close to the ease of use of Quick Cache.
I've now installed the latest version on 5 local installs without any problems and I'm upgrading my rating to 5 stars.
This used to be a great plugin until someone decided they could make money from it. I don't think you are going to be making much money from it though as it doesn't work. It never updated a cached page, when I tried to disable it, it broke entirely and I had to restore my site from a backup. All of the features like pattern matching were removed. All in all, this thing is useless now and I will find a new caching plugin to use.
This was such a great plugin. So sorry to see it go south.
This was a spectacularly bad release.
Update: I've given it another chance as I really was a fan. I'm glad to see most of the issues of the first release was fixed.
Deactivated Immediately! Never to be used again!
this plugin is useless for me because custom exclusion patterns can't use in LITE version.
Why cut out all users using php <5.3 ? No good!
Loved this plug in until the latest update that removed the URL String Filtering to the Pro only version.
Due to the nature of having a shopping cart on my website I need to have strings un-cached. Have had to pay out for the pro version because I don't have the time to find a different chache plugin and this one does work really well.
So 5 Stars for the plugin itself 1 for having to pay $15 for the pro version to have something that is essential, would still have been a 5 star if the cost was closer to $5, and the feature wasn't removed from an already working unpaid version.
User Agents only in PRO version?
The latest update will break your site if you are not using PHP3 or newer. There is no warning to check the PHP version prior to install, you just find out after the site is broken.
Fixed by: 1. Deleting Quick Cache plugin via ftp. 2. Updating site to PHP 3.
Just deleting the plugin is not enough to fix the site. Got a fatal error until I updated to PHP 3.
Am not brave enough to try re-installing this plug-in, besides, another reviewer says many of the features are gone. I will be avoiding this one in the future.
The latest update caused my site to crash.
