It makes a difference when you enable it but you have to play around a little with the settings and to remmeber clearing the cache. I love that it also has a minify feature.

There seems to be a really old bug which still happens and I just noticed it today, good thing that my wordpress install is just several months old and I noticed it early.

The problem affects the trailing slash in your permalinks. So for example if you have set your links to site.com/category/post/ and type the address without a slash - site.com/category/post it also loads and it doesn't redirect. This is a problem for the search engines as they see it as a duplicated content. But there is a fix for that - you just change your Disk cache method to "Basic" instead of "Enchanced" and clear the caches.

I found some posts about the problem from 2013 which may be of interest.

I am not an expert to judge this plugin in a professional way. But as a web designer i think that this plugin does a clear and effective job to the website performance without any disturbances or errors.

It may be a bit difficult for novices to run it, but the guidelines for a basic setup are simple, so anyone without special knowledge can set it up and running very quickly.

Thank you for this great plugin!

FANTASTIC

This plugin did wonders for my site - and speeded it up without a problem.

Install was super quick and I opted to go for the CDN that they suggested, which has definitely made a difference.

My only gripe is that when minifying js my site goes a bit wonky and breaks the design - i think thats more my lack of knowledge rather than the plugin!

Great job guys!
