Developer Required | Multisite Configuration & Documentation Sorely Lacking
By , for WP 4.2.2

For the most part, performance is great - but when things go wrong it can be catastrophic. Trying to figure out optimal settings is a nightmare, but once they are in place - it's good.

Would love for there to be more user friendly documentation that doesn't require an IT background to understand and apply. And there is little to nothing I could find on using this in a multisite configuration. Older posts by people cite how the plugin should never be network activated, but apparently changes in the plugin make that the only option.

It's frustrating and more time consuming that it should be.

I think it would be ideal if Mr. Townes could develop some sample configurations that he knows works ideally with sites in popular environments such as Bluehost VPS vs shared. Give the user a set of import configurations that will really help their Google PageSpeed and then the rest is a tweak.

Noticeable improvement in site load time.

Great plugin that helps load times for my site.

Would be super great if the CDN updates could be automated, but that's a minor thing.

It takes a bit to understand all the tools, but once you discover them it really provides you with a user friendly interface to manage a lot of caching options.
