hoping this will stop the popups

Let's see. At the moment I am being presented a popup on every W3 setting tab.

seems good
By , for WP 4.1.1

I find the plug in confusing. Yes it improves page loading speed but I seem to get partial page loads from time to time. I don't like being forced to make a review..... and I am not sufficiently competent to fully rate this plug in

Three stars for forcing me to tell how bad you are.

Does it job. Very poor documentation
By , for WP 4.1.1

The plugin does its job. However there is no good manual and explanation about the settings.

The best explanation about a setting you can find is "put this on 3600". Right...

The only way to fine tune this plugin i by trial and error. To bad.

Very helpful plugin, but the pop-ups are annoying
By , for WP 4.1.1

Takes a bit to setup, but very powerful and very helpful to optimize a website.

The plugin works really well, but it's quite annoying the pop-ups to support the plugin keep coming up, even after you have signed up for the mailing list and rated the plugin on WordPress.org.

I would give it 5 stars, if it wasn't for the pop-ups.

Decent, but has issues

I use this on a couple sites, usually it's great. However, there is not much documentation on what to do when something goes wrong. Example: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/error-w3-total-cache-default-settings-are-in-use?replies=1

Another error: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/unable-to-communicate-with-cloudflare-api-setting-zone_settings-unknown-token?replies=1#post-6675797

It won't let me start using it unless I leave a rating.

Great Plugin with Nightmare Popup
By , for WP 4.1

Mr. Townes, firstly, W3 Total Cache is excellent. However, the new popup (http://postimg.org/image/8naoxhqhn/) requesting that we link/tweet/review is incredibly annoying/disturbing/infuriating. I filled-in the option to join the mailing list thinking the popup would disappear. Nope. Will it go away if I submit this review? Not sure yet. In any case, it's very heavy-handed and I think it will result in a backlash against the plugin. It certainly doesn't encourage me to place a link on my sites, or tweet, etc. I'm happy to PAY for the plugin, but I don't want to fight this popup over and over and over . . . with EVERY setting change. Insane. Please fine another way to do whatever it is your trying to accomplish. Who's with me on this? Contact Frederick Townes. Thank you!
