Complicated, but brilliant
By , for WP 3.9.2

This plugin definitely increase site performance significantly (by almost a third in my case).

Definitely recommend.

There are a lot of settings/options that take a while to work through, some can have some pretty major effects on website functionality, so you need to spend sometime going through each setting carefully and monitoring its effect, but once you have worked out what works (and what doesn't), its brilliant. I Would rather have too many options than not enough!

Thanks

Have to admit, the Pop Ups are extremely annoying, a price worth paying for such a good free plugin, however it doesn't make me want to pay for the full version as it is an intrusive and unfriendly sales tactic which has the opposite effect of making me want to purchase from the author. Thanks anyway though.

Decent plug-in, obnoxious pop-ups
By ,

The only reason I don't like this plug-in is the pop-ups. There are enough of these pop-ups to make configuration a nightmare.

I'm new to this plugin, it seems to be working well and there's lots of positive reviews. I'm still learning how to make adjustments so I can't really provide an accurate review, but a pop-up window insists that I rate the plugin NOW in spite of this...

Like the plugin, annoyed by the pop-up
By , for WP 3.9.2

The fact that the rate us pop-up plugin appears every time I access the page is super-annoying and hampering.

I'm still giving 4 stars because the plugin is excellent.

My favorite caching plugin
By , for WP 3.9.2

Does everything you want it to do and really gets load speed where it needs to be. I would totally buy the paid version but don't really need to since the free version does everything I need...but may I will just to avoid them sneaking their link onto my site!

Great plugin, should make the free version a bit more limited so that you don't have to work so hard for exposure. You created a great product, you should charge it for it.

Cheers!

Considerably slows my site
By , for WP 3.9.2

With fully built caches, more than triples the load time of my sites according to both desktop and web-based tools. This happens across several different environments and hosting services, as well as very different WordPress configurations. Unfortunately, this was once a invaluable tool but something has become broken along the way.

Good

Some issues with minify CSS with the formcraft plugin, but overall it's good.
