By and large this plugin tends to work, though with each core or PHP update it becomes more fraught with issues. I have spent many hours troubleshooting issues that end up being due to this plugin. After about 5 years of using this plugin on a number of sites, I'm now seeking alternatives. There are a number of simple caching plugins but they all lack the level of control of W3.
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.
your pop up i fairly annoying and cannot be deactivated.
[ENGLISH] Hello guys
I set the minify session as manual and after doing the tests in PageSpeed Google Insights, added all the URLs reported by the tool (like this: http://mcolombari.com.br/...2uYMLBbnSTQE4UKa41YZgrX07-PEQO.js?d6fa78) at W3 Total Cache, hoping to solve the problem.
But when updating the analysis, appear new URLs, which I add the plugin again and update the analysis, new URLs appear and so on. The performance does not necessarily improve sometimes comes to worse, so I ended up opting for the automatic mode. These new URLs that arise would be a problem of my wordpress theme or is it something related to the plugin W3 Total Cache? Will queeu'm doing something wrong?
Eu defini a sessão minify como manual e após fazer os testes no Google PageSpeed Insights, adicionei todas as URLs informadas pela ferramenta (como esta: http://mcolombari.com.br/…2uYMLBbnSTQE4UKa41YZgrX07-PEQO.js?d6fa78), no W3 Total Cache, esperando sanar o problema.
Mas ao atualizar a análise, aparecem novas URLs, as quais eu adiciono novamente ao plugin e ao atualizar a análise, novas URLs surgem e assim sucessivamente. O desempenho não necessariamente melhora, por vezes chega a piorar, de modo que eu acabei optando pelo modo automático. Essas novas URLs que vão surgindo seriam um problema do meu tema wordpress ou é algo relacionado ao plugin W3 Total Cache? Será queeu estou fazendo algo errado?
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.
I really cannot see the difference after installation. Speed looks pretty much the same.
How many months for PHP7 support?
Can't say it actually works. It forces you to rate it or give credit to it on your site within 30 days of it being installed.
We had a non-standard WP installation so paid for them to set the plugin up for us to ensure we got the best possible performance. This was never completed. Despite many emails.
In the end purchased Zen Cache which 'just works' out of the box.
