Spamming with new promote box
By ,

A very hard tool to work with. There's a box appearing every time, seems very difficult to work with it.

Were working great untill spaming with new promoting pop up box
By , for WP 4.0

I had this plugin installed in one of my client site.. and this plugin was working great till I found out today it was giving pop up whenever I visit this plugin dashboard for asking sign up for newsletter or rate them or tweet about them. I did everything but still this pop up junk coming up and making a work mess. Fix this. This is not a proper method for getting support from users by forcing them.

Thanks.

This plugin broke my site

I am using this plugin and while editing some css I empty cache to test site and all my site will be broken. All my HTML5 elements disappear. After uninstalling this plugin my site function as before it is.

To be scammed or not to be
By ,

I'm 100% sure that the plugin works great.

The "support team" on the other hand... I've payed them to optimise my website and only received a confirmation mail.
No work has been done and all my mails are ignored.

Work opposite in my case
By , for WP 4.0

After installing this plugin, web site speed test shows 15 seconds load vs 5 seconds before the installation. So in my case unfortunately its make it slower, not faster. :(

The Plug-in Works Well But Don't Pay Them
By , for WP 4.0

I paid these guys to setup and optimize this plug-in for me and they never did. They had no problem taking my money, but after that never responded. It is strange because it is a good plug-in, however pay a third party to set it up for you.

Annoying popup
By , for WP 4.0

I had this plugin deactivated for a few months and never really bothered to enable it again. Today when I wanted to configure it I was interrupted with a annoying popup and couldn't continue until I gave a review. So here it is. This is really annoying and if I didn't get this popup and loved the plugin I would have reviewed it, but instead you are getting a 1/5 star rating from me.

30 days then blocked from using it.
By , for WP 3.9.2

After 30 days a popup blocks the use of the plugin unless you follow them on Facebook, give a review or... some other option. I gave them a review (not this one, a good one) but the popup won't go away. Extremely annoying. Going back to Super Cache. Why does the 'CEO' of Total Cache feel the need to show his face on the popup as well. It doesn't make me feel all personal with him, just gives me someone to through virtual darts at because he's decided to block my using his plugin...
