Made my site unresponsive to any edits
By , for WP 4.1.1

Installed this plugin last night and when I started working on my site this morning any simple edits I made were not updating on my website. After hours of searching for solutions I deleted this plugin to see if this was the issue and it was. Seemed to be causing a conflict with another plugin. Shame as it seems to do a great job for other users.

Are you serious?
By , for WP 4.1.1

This plugin slowed down my site lol.. i ran page speed check on multiple services (Google, GTMetrix, Media4X) and all returned faster pages with this plugin disabled than when enabled.. Can't recommend this plugin at all..

Rendered site unusable.
By , for WP 4.1.1

Installed and site became unusable. Periodically working every now and then but 80% of the time just resulted in a blank page showing. Uninstalled and deleted plugin and all is well again.

Trashed my site - avoid at all costs
By , for WP 4.1.1

Plugin came bundled with WordPress
Managed to screw up my site.
As a newbie I turned to my host, Hostgator who were fantastic and sorted me out.
Looking at some of the other reviews WordPress should disassociate from this plugin

Trashed my sites
By , for WP 4.1.1

Trashed two of my sites and was having all kinds of problems. Still haven't fixed the fatal errors..

Crippled my websites
By , for WP 4.1.1

This plug-in auto-updated and crippled all of my WP sites. Had to manually alter wp config files to get back into admin panels.

This is unacceptable.

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:
https://wordpress.org/plugins/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.

Broke my site- 0 stars- BEWARE
By ,

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
By ,

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

If you get a blank screen

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
