Good stuff

But I don't like being forced to review

enough with the pop ups
By ,

great tool, a little frustrating at times especially when i see a popup begging me to rate/link to/tweet about my feelings towards the plugin.
Maybe if I could get through setting it up without seeing this every page I could figure out how to setup my new CDN correctly without breaking my site..

Fantastic

Fantastic plugin

works great but popups are annoying
By ,

I love this plugin it has so many configuration options. Unfortunately the only reason I'm rating it is because the popup told me to. And it it won't go away :(. I'm hoping rating this plugin does the trick...

Great accept the forced review after 30 days
By , for WP 4.5.3

This plugin has lots of great features and helped me improve the performance of the site where it's installed. However, the fact that you are forced to write a review or tweet about it after 30 days to continue to be able to interact with it, is a bit annoying.

Power + Complexity
By , for WP 4.5.3

W3 seems to be a fairly powerful and flexible caching plugin. This power and flexibility, however, comes with complexity. Be prepared to look through a tutorial or 3 in order to get it set up properly.

Also, it seems to be best to turn off the caching plugin when making changes to the site theme or styling, as it doesn't always reflect your latest changes.

I use this on all my sites, but I wish it wasn't quite so difficult to use.

works well for the most part.

Great to have tools like this one available.

Fairly easy if you stick with the basics. It would be nice to get more out of the caching options but that seems a little advanced, as everything, theme, plugins and such, all need to play nice with one another.
Thank you for a great product.
