Got Virus !! Hosting account Temporary Blocked
By , for WP 4.4

Supercache cache'd Virus !! So my Hosting provider temporary blocked Hosting Port 80/443, which resulted in Dead wordpress !!

See - http://prntscr.com/9wq2f3

I deleted my plugin and now my website got restored !!

I love the performance of SuperCache but this incident lead to deletion of this plugin.

It Crashed My Site
By ,

After installation I did turn it on, pushed the test button and I'd got a server error. I had to go to the server root to deactivate the plugin and get my site back alive. I'm going back to w3 total cache, sorry guys, it just didn't worked for me.

Didn't Work. And I can't delete it.
By , for WP 4.4.1

First, it's way too complicated. And it doesn't work. And now the shocking part - I have deactivated the plugin, but I cannot delete it. It perpetually shows server error.

Compression not working for me
By , for WP 4.4

Whatever I do with the settings compression is not working for me. Google pagespeed is shown 26 out of 100... Can't setup Leverage browser caching...

Messed up my after update to version 4.3 / 4.4
By ,

I have been a fan of WP Super Cache since 2008 and the plugin has been great.

But I think lately, the interference with my theme(s) is just too much. Every now and then, Super Cache is giving me problems.

I run a number of job websites: Jobs in Ghana, Jobs in Nigeria, Jobs in Kenya, Jobs in Tanzania.

Lately, caching for image files has not been working well at all.

So now, I'm using Total Cache.
I think total cache is more advanced and if only we can take time to go through the settings (which is not complex anyway), then it's a good bargain.

Update requires reconfiguration.
By , for WP 4.4

I am always afraid to update this plugin. Once upgraded, no assurance that it will work without changing settings. WTF is this!

It works, but has issues. No support response.
By , for WP 4.2.5

Preload stalls numerous times per day with no indication as to why. Support is not responsive for months. Along with the stalls I get emails that I cannot turn off. The Preload tab will not even let me turn off the preload or change any settings. Not an exciting situation.

Total deception for me
By , for WP 4.3.1

The plugin slowed down my site terribly and caused intermittent database connection errors all the time. It also slowed down access to dashboard
The site went from a 99.99% uptime to 70.1% after installing the plugin.

A real bulls#it, one of the worst plugins I have ever seen

Hardcoded paths inside PHP files
By , for WP 4.3.1

The developers of this plugin are obviously incompetent and really bad coders. This plugin have hard coded paths in the php files AND database. I didn't encounter this in any other plugin till know. All of the websites' cache config files and DB should be edited after a migration in order to work properly or to work at all. You can imagine what that means if you need to fix 30+ websites!!! The plugin shows errors before that about the paths and can't be accesses via wp-admin. The only solution is to fix their bad written plugin manually! The issue is in the following files:


The hardcoded paths in the DB are located in wp-options. Just search for them.


Custom URL/Permalink Structure
By , for WP 4.3.1

Could not even use this plugin because I got this error up front: A custom url or permalink structure is required for this plugin to work correctly. Please go to the Permalinks Options Page to configure your permalinks.
