Great plugin, but annoying pop up.

Great plugin, but annoying pop up.

Also, auto-minify error doesn't go away no matter what settings i try.

Annoying popup won't go away
By , for WP 3.8.3

Total cache is ok but it gives a really annoying popup in the admin panel that won't go away after 30 days -even if you click on it to save the settings. bugggg.

Great plugin to improve web speed
By , for WP 3.9.1

This is one of my favourites plugins. I prefer not to use any plugins, but when your web is too slow, this plugin can be a great fix without having too much knowledge about web performance optimization.

Must have plugin for sites where speed matters.

A little cluttered but powerful
By , for WP 3.9.1

A little overpowering to start with but once the clutter of the various options is figured out, it's a really helpful plugin.

Don't use this plugin! Too risky find another.
By , for WP 3.9.1

Far too risky to use this plugin and there is no way to know ahead of time whether it will give you a white screen of death. Horrible plugin!!! Although this plugin works well for some... If it breaks your theme and you get a white screen of death removing the plugin becomes next to impossible. With over 300 1 star review it happens too often for this to be a good plugin. The plugin adds lines to htaccess both in the wordpress install directory as well as in your root directory. Most shared hosting will not allow you to access this level of your hosting so you will need your host to give you access to the root folder so you can edit the htaccess. Then the plugin also creates lines in your wp-config as well as thousands of other files on your server in the wp-content folder. The plugin cannot be deleted until you actually remove all the lines from htaccess files and in the wp-config file. So removing this plugin completely becomes a long process and nightmare even for skilled coders. I would not recommend putting your website at risk.
