Pop up keeps insisting I rate it!!!
By , for WP 4.4.2

Can't get rid of the continual pop up asking me to rate the plugin....

Great plugin, obnoxious popup
By , for WP 4.4.2

I use this on almost all my sites, but I'm rating it 1 star because it won't stop showing an obnoxious popup until I rate it.

Fraud! Took my money for premium service. Never provided
By , for WP 4.4.2

Fraud! DON'T support a "company" that has customer service and ethics like this! W3 Total Cache took my money for premium service but never provided the service they promised. Multiple attempts over the last month to ask politely for a refund were unanswered. I want my money back! DON'T support a "company" that has customer service and ethics like this!

No replies to bugs
By , for WP 4.4.2

We have posted this issue her AND on their web site 4 times.

There is a BUG in W3. We installed it. It seemed to run fine. Ran some speed tests. note it was working. We were/are using memcached.

Then, we deactivated it temporarily JUST to run same speed tests. We made NO OTHER CHANGES, UPDATES, etc. to ANYTHING.
W3 was only de-activated for 7 hours. But when we re-activated it, we got a fatal error:

Fatal error: Class 'Memcache' not found in /var/www/vhosts/AppBuzzinga.com/httpdocs/wp-content/plugins/w3-total-cache/lib/W3/Cache/Memcached.php on line 38

The only response we have gotten was ,
" memcached must not be present"

Forgetting for a moment that 7 hours before it was running fine, the error was RUUNING memcached.php when the error occured.

There are some issues that should be addressed whether you are "paying" for support ot not.

Slowdowns home page load on dedicated server
By , for WP 4.4.2

Average page load with cache plugins 300-500 ms more then without it.
No any use.

breaks everything
By , for WP 4.4.2

If you have even a slightly customized template, don't bother with this, it breaks many things.

annoying screen popups hangs site
By , for WP 4.4.2

tried to use this plugin but unfortunately the message popup screen is a real issue that needs to be addressed. causes screen to hang and have to reload plugin to try and setup, in the end opted for a less annoying cache plugin.
