I Have A Need For Speed!
By , for WP 4.2.1

This is by far the best free cache plugin I have ever used! I gained over a 40% increase in page load times.

I will be contacting their support to purchase the optimization services for all three websites.

A big beast, and a really complicated beast
By , for WP 4.2.1

This product is highly recommended and it has helped me a lot to improve speed in my site [Link redacted]. You can visit the site to appreciate the current speed. I needed to measure every different setting in [Link redacted] before arriving to the correct one. Very complicated indeed. My main problems are with the minify feature. I found that it can slow the site, and you need to let it disabled if CloudFlare is taking care of it. 5 stars cause it really speed the site. Minus one because the complexity of the tools.

Great plugin

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.

100,000 inodes created by this plugin in under an hour
By , for WP 4.2.1

This issue of overwhelming inode creation has been known, and unaddressed, for 2 years now. (See original support thread HERE)

It created so many that it put my account in danger of being shut down, and I've wasted hours today trying to clean up the mess by deleting all these files.

I had to go in through my host's file manager simply to stop the plugin, since it had used so many resources that I couldn't load the admin panel.

This is the second time today that I've had to do this, after trying to change the settings on the last forced shut-down and clean up.

It not only didn't speed my site up, it shut it down completely, more than once, with a problem that has existed UNRESOLVED for two years.

I give it one star because that's the required minimum to post a review.
