Denial of service

After a while this plugin will stop deleting the expired cache files and your site will crash because there's no more space left on device!

I guess they are trying to force you to use the payed version of the plugin.

Do not install this!

excellent performance

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.

Professional

A very professional plugin with many functions!

Complicated but works
By , for WP 4.2.2

Requires a lot of research to get it working correctly. Which I still haven't managed.

W3TC is no longer supported
By , for WP 4.2.2

I paid $100 for support two weeks ago. W3TC will not answer the phone, will not return phone calls, will not respond to email, and will not respond to support tickets. The least they can do is remove the paid support option from the plugin.

Great optimizer
By , for WP 4.2.2

This thing is much better than other optimizers I've tried.

With it turned on, my web page responds about 10X faster.

Thank you.

Very good at speeding things up
By , for WP 4.2.2

Works great, event the free features can't be done without!
Great job!
