Version 131121 Breaks Site if Not PHP 3 or Greater
By , for WP 3.7.1

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.

Site broken!!!
By , for WP 3.7.1

Latest update broke site and even removing the plugin completely has not helped as getting errors in wp-includes/functions.php on line 3670, 3680 and 3683.

That will teach me for blindly doing it without checking first!!!

Not impressed!

Perhaps the developer should have seen what happened with the AdRotate plugin here: http://wordpress.org/support/view/plugin-reviews/adrotate/page/3

Before he took a perfectly functioning plugin, "rewrote" it, removed half of the features, and then asks you to upgrade to the Pro version to get them back. Especially without telling anyone in the changelog that it would delete most of the features if you update.

Bad, bad, bad business model.

Does great job without screwing things up
By , for WP 3.7.1

I like this cache plugin because it only does caching, is easy to unistall, and doesn't screw things up. Used it on multiple sites now. Very reliable. Documentation is well done and clear. I feel very confident using this plugin. PLUS it speeds up my site significantly.

This plugin is fantastic!

I tried a lot of caching plugins before this, and I can say that in so many ways, Quick Cache is the best. I'm a pretty advanced WP user, but some of the other plugins were complicated and required a lot of thought and effort to get set up. And some broke my site. :-/

With Quick Cache, everything is explained along the way. So you know what to set and why you'd want to set things a certain way. Super user-friendly and easy to follow. And if you're an advanced user, there are plenty of options for you as well.

Ah, but does it work? Heck yeah it does! I use pingdom monitoring, and my site went from a pathetic load time of around 4-6 seconds to an average load time of 1.8 seconds and 1.2 seconds in the US! This plugin makes a huge difference in site speed - which is what it's all about, right?

So, two thumbs up here! Thanks!

Now, that is fast! I was reluctant to install it because it hasn't been updated in a while, but it certainly works for me.

I see someone has mentioned the permissions requirement for wp-config.php. That had me wondering, too, until I did this. I gave Quick Cache the permissions it said it required, activated and configured it. Then I set the permissions back so that wp-config.php was read only. Quick Cache doesn't seem to mind. If anyone knows why it should be a problem, I'd appreciate the info. Otherwise, I'm quite satisfied.
