Recommended plugin.

2nd Cache plugin I tried - this one actually seamed to work! Love it!

Really simple to use options but still has enough configuration for some advanced stuff


Really Breakage Without Compromise!
By , for WP 3.5.2

Breaks WP. Not compatible with a number of plugins, such as All In One WP Security. Not recommended.

Simple and Effective
By , for WP 3.5.2

This plugin will cache your site effectively and is easy to setup and maintain. My only complain is the UI is a bit funky. The "Clear Cache" button it ads to the top navigation doesn't fit in well and looks out-of-place. My suggestion is to integrate this with the UI of the admin bar so it appears part of the layout rather. That's my only complain (hence the minus star). Everything else works great!

Cut down load times by half
By , for WP 3.5.2

I love this plugin. I tried most of the plugins for cache support, but they were either to complicated or actually made my blog slower. Quick cache is easy to use and just works with basically the click of a button. It does have more advanced options for those who are technical enough to tweak and optimize, but I simply turned it on and let it be. Took about 1 second off average load time. May not seem like much, but the site was fairly speedy to begin with.

Good apparently reliable

After Securi and Rackspace's warning, its not possible to use W3TC or WP Super Cache.
Quick Cache does the work fine.

The problem is with uploading to Akamai or Rackspace Cloud Files...

Great Plugin - Even able to cache responsive sites!
By , for WP 3.5.1

This is a great plugin. The key for me is the custom MD5 salt. Allowed me to easily use a cookie to cache multiple versions of pages that resulted from a responsive approach. Bravo!

Simplistic, speedtastic!
By , for WP 3.5.1

Oh my how this plugin helps in boosting some extra speed in your websites.

It's a very simple plugin compared to other caching plugins here on WordPress.org - but it gets the job done very well without any extra clutter or messing with configurations.

Just activate it, choose "On" in the settings and Save. Done.

Great plugin, quick and easy to use

I switch when W3 Total Cache become trash and plan - placing huge notes on my plugin page (should be banned from WP for that!) and also break a few of my websites, plus not cached a few at all! Total disaster. Quick cache gave me what I needed - just quick, simple cache plugin without any annoyance and with enough options. 10+. reliable and fast - that is what you want from cache plugin, right? :)

Requires wp-config.php permissions to be 777
By , for WP 3.5.1

This plugin works, but I discovered today that Quick Cache requires the permissions of wp-config.php to be set at 777. I found this out because I run some security tests and usually I run my set up prior to changing wp-config.php permissions. This time though I did it vice versa and Quick Cache said it need my wp-config.php to be set at 777.

This is a security risk as the permissions 777 not only allow others on your server to read an important file but also permissions to change it. Being able to read it is just bad enough because wp-config.php contains your database name, database password and database user that your whole wordpress needs to run.

WordPress.org says "All files should be 644 or 640. Exception: wp-config.php should be 600 to prevent other users on the server from reading it."

Read more half way down the page under "Shared Hosting..." @ http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_File_Permissions

I won't be using this plugin until an update is released because of the security issue.
