Not working with WPMU
By , for WP 4.5.2

It does not function with WordPress Multisite.

Bozo Multisite
By , for WP 4.5.2

You [ redacted ]...I just wasted 20 min. of my time preparing/installing this on Multisite...is it too hard to mention it's not multisite compliant...geez.

Great plugin for your enemy.
By , for WP 4.4.2

This plugin is a perfect gift for your most hated enemy. One installation is all it takes to break down a site and damage it beyond repair. Three times I tried this plugin, and all three times I've had to completely delete my theme files and reupload to get my site working again.

Premium Crashed my WP site
By , for WP 4.4.2

I tried working with the developer but no luck. I even paid for the premium edition and it just crashed the WP website with tons of errors and had to manually get in via FTP and delete the plugin folders just to get my website back.

Sometimes slower than no cache !!!
By , for WP 4.4.2

We tested this cache out thoroughly over several sites; as well as other high popularity cache programs.

For "Hyper Cache" Google-ranking load-up times are identical to not installing ANY cache at all, especially on our test eCommerce site.

"Zen Cache" appears surprisingly good though, so is W3 (w painful config) & Commercial WP Rocket. But despite it's name, "WP Fastest Cache" actually is sometimes 1+ sec SLOWER than no cache at all.

To those 715+ reviewers that gave this 5 stars . . . Don't believe us? You can test it yourself with just a stopwatch (or even Ur Smartphone clock). This is the epitome of user-experience, no?

Time >8 instances of "1st views" with and without WPFC enabled. Write us & tell us what U get. Prepare 2 B shocked!

Caching works - but what a minefield it is!!!

This plugin is invulnerability, Careful guys
By ,

My website had been hack, after i go check every single code in my web, i found the command script comming from this plugin and he/she trying to attack web server through this plugin. here the log, as you see that someone trying to access my website using this cmd because before that i had delete the core wp file, so i can detect it.

sh: iframe: No such file or directory
sh: line 24: + Simplify_commerce_params[ fieldErrors.field ] + : command not found

Cant uninstal, will destroy your website.
By ,

I just tried to uninstall this plugin and now all my pages are blank. I have already deactivated the plugin, deleted the plugin folder, deleted the cache folder, restored my original htaccess file... still blank pages.

Now I will restore my database from a backup from before this terrible plugin was installled.

Serious killer bugs with minify features
By , for WP 4.2.2

With minify HTML and combine css / js on, the cache did not clean up and created so many cache files that after tens of gigabytes of storage I ran out of disk space.

Updates (not fixes) were apparently provided, but the version number did not change so you didn't know unless you posted a problem here and the author told you to re-download the plugin. Seriously bad practice.

Then the latest fixes result in a good part of your minified css being shown on the top of the front page.

Time for another cache plugin. This isn't ready for prime time.

support & quality
By , for WP 4.1.1

discovered a serious issue with this plugin which everytime writes htaccess files the server will end up with internal server error code 500; if i edit the file myself i find some </FilesMatch> closing but that were never opened or something ..so basically a syntax error - reported this a couple of times to this guy which this time proved to only respond my emails to keep me busy.. had to resend this an email 3 times ( i had copy/pasted the the htaccess in email body) but he was still asking for a copy of the file

even though it would a problem from our server i would expect a better attitude when asking for support of a paid product

so, be careful before buying this one...
