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!!!

By , for WP 4.0.1

Would not properly install. Will crash with error. Destroyed by sites ... all went white ... switched to W3 Total Cache which was simple and easy and showed immediate improvement to sites speed. Avoid WP super cache even if your life depend on it ... awful, garbage!!

404 pages everywhere
By , for WP 4.0.1

By chance I realised that author pages on my site were getting 404 errors, but only some users that had joined the site after I had installed this plugin which was weeks ago.

Took me a long time to find out that this was the offending plugin. I can't believe it, it looks legit, and has so many good reviews. What a mistake.

Not Good For Adsense
By ,

Plugin is doing what it says, however after I install this plugin there was a huge drop in my income and ad page views in adsense. I tested plugin about 7 days. To be honest, I was pleased with page speed but no one wants lose income because of it. After I uninstall the plugin, page view, total income and rpm turned to normal.

I don't suggest this plugin for those who are using adsense.

Causes White Screen of Death
By , for WP 4.1

I installed this plugin a few days ago and it seemed great. Seemed to speed everything up. (Hence the 2 stars and not 0) Then I started getting the white screen of death. I thought it had to do with some other server issue I had just finished dealing with...but it turns out (after a lot of research and wasted time) that the problem is with WP Super Cache. The errors it was throwing out were the Fatal - Internal Zend errors. I found a few fixes, but nothing worked for me, except disabling the plugin. It's too bad!

Edit: A few months later I tried again on a completely different site - trying to see if maybe it was me that was the problem. Well, same problem that I had last time. So this plugin is good for destroying your site. It works for some people apparently though. Just make a backup first. And make sure you have access to your wp-config file!

PLEASE avoid if you also have SimplePress
By , for WP 4.0

I just finished several days of total misery after registration suddenly stopped working on my site. I spent literally dozens of hours combing the web for information about what might be causing it, posting on every forum I could find, following every piece of advice I could dig up, and trying about a million different suggestions, most of them radically different from each other.

Then, I posted the problem on the SimplePress forum, followed their advice, and finally figured it out. WP super cache refuses to play nice with Simple Press. It's the only possible explanation; I tried literally every other imaginable option. After deleting WPSC, the problem was solved.

I hope that somebody else reads this and maybe avoids the miserable experience I went through. Not every plugin that sounds good actually IS good!

This plugin caused my site to display blank pages.

This plugin caused my site to display blank pages on all devices. If anybody needs the solution to this problem, you have to use either your FTP or hosting panel to delete/rename the plugin.
