Broke Over 10+ Of My Websites Instantly
By , for WP 4.1.1

Today this plugin auto-updated itself, and ruined over 10+ of my websites, and I lost one client who said I wasn't professional because my MAIN website that represents me as a website developer ... was BROKEN.

This was totally unprofessional. I don't want WP-SuperCache to auto-update itself. I want to be able to choose when to update it. I can never trust this plugin for caching again. This has happened numerous times, and I am DONE with it.

For a truly professional caching combination, I recommend W3 TOTAL CACHE:

in combination with Cloudflare (free with HostGator). This is the worldwide redunancy CDN that Amazon and Apple use, among other huge companies.

Went in to edit my wp site today and found out that this plugin broke my site. Spent hours trying to fix.

DO NOT USE!

Base64 code

Exploit scanner detected base64 code. I want to know whether its necessary code included intentionally.

If you get a blank screen
By ,

If you get a blank screen don't panic.

(I'm on Godaddy, go to file manager on GoDaddy, look for wp-config.php file through your host file manager. Search for "WP_CACHE" and add // to line 19 (should look like this

//define('WP_CACHE', true); //Added by WP-Cache Manager

Don't install this plugin, it will break your site
By ,

It's a nightmare to install this plugin to my site. After I activated, my site was broken, shown blank on all of my page, even my WordPress admin page. This plugin change a lot of your database files and you will have a lot of trouble to get your site back if you are not familiar with coding like me. If you don't believe, go to their support forum to check yourself that how many people had this problem.

why, oh why?
By , for WP 4.1

well, I did it again. Uninstalled the plugin to check why my site was actually slowing down when I moved from another caching plugin only to find that my site is now broken and displays nothing but: define('WP_CACHE', true); //Added by WP-Cache Manager define( 'WPCACHEHOME', '/home/con...." across the top.

I suggest you ONLY install this plugin if you have read and are comfortable with the following: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-super-cache/other_notes/

Personally, there's too much risk involved in this for a non-programmer, so I would use a different one.

Have already had to waste several hours trying to fix my site. This kinda stuff is so aggravating!

Broke My Site BADLY
By , for WP 4.1

In addition to not noticing any difference, this ended up breaking my site and costed me an entire day to fix.

White Screen of Death (solution)
By , for WP 4.1

Seems like most are in love with this plugin. Might just be a problem with my theme/hosting (godaddy) but once I activated the plugin, I got the "WHITE SCREEN of DEATH" as it's been nicknamed. Was worried, but found a solution:

Simply open up wp-config.php file through your host file manager. Search for "WP_CACHE" and erase the line "define('WP_CACHE', true); //Added by WP-Cache Manager"

One you save the edit, the plugin will be disabled and you will be able to delete the plugin from the admin page.

Was looking for a cache plugin to solve some memory issues with my hosting, "WP Fastest Cache" was ok, but went with "Quick Cache"

White Screen of Death
By , for WP 4.1

Caused white screen of death on m site.. probably was like that for days before I noticed. My site only had 2 other plugins installed and was the latest wordpress. Be more careful putting updates out there!

Worst Ever! No Support! Stay Away!
By ,

This is by far the worst plugin I ever used. My most important page (my blog) was messed up for 3 days now! No one could answer why and there is no one providing any support. There are ppl requesting support for months now!!!

Stay away!!!
