great product, annoying pop up
By , for WP 4.1

30 day extortion pop up withstanding, pretty good plugin.

trouble clearing cache and changing settings but it works
By , for WP 4.1

Seemed to work fine for awhile, but after upgrades I can't get the cache to clear and I can't get out of a pop up window that appears in the community edition when I try to change settings...the pop up window that says rate us. Well, they asked for it so hear it is.

I should say that the page is appearing fine, but there's big cache files on the server that won't clear. Manual deletion seems a bit drastic for a plug in that says clear cache all over it.

To clear the cache i had to do it from within the plugin settings. The clearing cache from the admin bar did nothing.

Coercive suggestions
By , for WP 4.1

Very nice plugin, but insistancy of popup windows with photo of author and his coercive suggestions break good impression

Good plugin - Crappy popup
By , for WP 4.0.1

Really hate being forced to submit a review to get rid of an annoying popup that WON'T LEAVE ME ALONE! The review would have been better without being FORCED to write one.

Great Speed But Complicated
By , for WP 4.1

W3 has significantly increased the speed of our site. However, it is a bloated plugin and complicated to setup. We have since switched to Supercache.

It's Just Like It Isn't There
By , for WP 4.0.1

I use the plugin to make a website that I hold faster via caching. Not much minification or other types of optimization.

It does what it says it would do and it does it as unobtrusively as possible so long as you get some of your server-side settings right.

I'm sure there's a lot more to this plugin since I haven't tried everything yet (still have to get on with using a CDN) and I think that's one last great thing I saw in this one.

Really worth giving a shot!

Not working for me

good but the popup for all click is bad

Somewhat confusing with so many options, but seems to cache well :)

Somewhat confusing with so many options, but seems to perform well using the default settings. The nag/popup telling me to support the plugin is pretty annoying...
