Easy Web Performance Optimization (WPO) using caching: browser, page, object, database, minify and content delivery network support.
Our website works much faster!
It is does OK. Sometimes it slows down or interferes with other plugins.
After installing this plugin 7 hours ago and trying to get it NOT to break my site for the entire time, it then spams me with a popup telling me that I've been "using W3 Total cache for at least 30 days" and asking me to give them a great rating.
I've literally been using it for less than half a day and now it won't stop coercing me for a review. (Which, even after I've posted this, the pop up STILL won't go away.)
So here you are. If I didn't have to use this for MaxCDN, I wouldn't go near it.
If you know the optimal settings and have a professional theme, this plugin will vastly improve your load time.
The flaw mentioned in title is next - I hate the modal to give review and recommend the plugin (that's how I got here to write this ;) ) - I really don't like that type of "pushy" promotion ...
But hey, it's a free plugin which does its job very well. If possible, I would give 4.8 stars ...
My website loads very fast with this plugin
After installing w3 cache, set pretty much to their default settings.
14 Plugins were broken - the icons & images used by the plugins would NOT display.
w3's initial "support" reply was to blame it on our FONT CSS. They blamed icon/IMAGE errors on the fonts!
After pointing out how unlikely that the fonts are causing image load problems, NO reply. IN A MONTH. re-posted the error 3 times with "support". nada
Gave them guest admin access - it was never used.
That sort of response is probably why the plugin show "21 of 300 support threads in the last two months have been resolved."
Spent 3 weeks trying everything WE could think of, still no joy - plugins still broken. And 3rd party test sites don't show a tremendous speed change over site performance without caching.
