Site is still slow and site would not load once I enabled several settings. Luckily I was able to get back into my WP dashboard and turn off the settings so the site did return.

Good plug in annoying pop up ad
By , for WP 4.5.3

The plugin works fine. Although it does not remove all JS and CSS above the fold; even when manually adding all entries shown by PageSpeed Insights.

It is irritating to see the developer include annoying pop-up ads asking for upgrading or sending Tweets etc. I've sent Tweets many times; yet, the pop-up shows up after every single modification of the settings.

Damn these popups

Ok, I already posted a review and the popup is still there!!! really annoying!!

Broke my site
By , for WP 4.4.2

Broke my website font, lots of warning messages. Not user friendly at all. After an hour of fighting with it I wasn't able to minify Java, CSS nor HTML.
Increased my speed by 3 points, which is why it gets all of 2 stars.

Great until Pop Up

How do I get rid of the Pop Up?

Slower than non-cached
By , for WP 4.4.2

After a year or so, I wanted to try out W3TC again, but I stumbled upon the same problems, which is that W3TC makes my website slower than non-cached.

Even after consciously tweaking everything, W3TC slows down even my WordPress dashboard.
I'm sure it must be a great plugin, but it never worked out for me.

pop up not going away

Must use

CDN minification and rewriting does not work. No response from devs
By ,

The lack of responses leads me to believe that this is a defunct project. CDN rewriting does not work, combining minified files doesn't work either.

Gives up.
