well done!

nice tool

I am glad I have this plug-in. Though I will say I'm only writing this in the hopes that the nag screen will turn off once I "spread the word."

I have a link to their site on my page, but since I had to manually insert it rather than have them do it automatically (they put it in the sidebar rather than the footer) I get a nag screen every time I touch their config page, sometimes having to dismiss it 2-3 times before it will really go away.

I'm all for supporting good development. I'm a new working artist (former IT person of 20 years) on a shoestring so I'm not able to pay for tools at the moment- but hopefully will be if I succeed. I want to sue this tool, but need the nagging to stop.

Complicated but effective

This is a great plug-in. The only problem I have had is there are so many tutorials out there that often give completely conflicting information. I wish there were some simple and recommended guides depending on your configuration.

I use GoDaddy and Amazon CloudFront. My scores have been all over the place and sometimes it is hard to know which box you ticked or unticked that had the biggest effect. At one point I had a 93 on Google Page Speed for Desktop and 84 for Mobile but I foolishly did not save the configuration. I changed settings as recommended by a guide and now am getting 67 Desktop and 47 mobile and for the life of me can get back my high speeds.

So that would be my only request to have some better guides to setting it up. But a great plugin as long as you are willing to do a lot of adjustments to get the best results.

Great Plugin

By , for WP 0.9.4

The plugin is really powerful and rich of options.
the only defect is that sometimes the options are a bit confusing.
I think you can enjoy the full power of this plug in if you host the site yourself (so you are 'root' of you own webserver) because there are some features that requires to put the hand on the server side.
Anyway really good!
