After 6 years still same bugs
By , for WP 4.3

It has been reported time and time again for 6 years.
The plugin serves a random page instead of the home page. Even when you specifically say not to cache it!
You would think an issue that major would get fixed in 6 years, well no, they still have no clue why it happens.

Why is This Plugin So Popular?
By , for WP 4.2.4

Over the last year, I've tried out WP Super Cache maybe five times on various websites I've been authoring, and without fail, on activation and a viewing (no settings altered) of the settings page, both the admin panel and the website itself crash to a white screen.

I realise that this will probably mean a page speed that's through the roof, but what's the crack here?

Latest attempt was because W3TC is now giving perpetual error messages. Do any caching plugins actually work nowadays?

Beware Installing This Plugin Made My Site Inaccessible

What a terrible experience. I had to pay someone to fix it.

Causes error in "post.php"
By , for WP 4.2.4

Hi everyone.
After installing and running this plugin I got the following error:
"object from empty value in /.../post.php on line 627".

How to fix it? I could not post any new posts.
Please help

Very Poor - DO NOT USE
By , for WP 4.2.3

No matter what I do it won't stop caching the front page. new articles stay hidden for up to an hour.

Support is terrible. Well, maybe that's not fair. I don't know how support is. I can't get them to respond. Questions and requests for help go unnoticed.

Complicated and breaks your site

This is the most awful cache I have ever experienced! It is written in an arrogant IT language only experts understand and if you have a bug with your scripts, you are left in the cold. I am going to desinstall it on every site!!!

Causing tremendous problems on a site I am developing
By , for WP 4.2.3

Pages won't update immediately, sometimes hours, sometimes days, sometimes never. Given the comments am afraid to uninstall. Am going to back up and try to restore the site. Wish me luck! By the way, this plugin installed itself when I did my WordPress install and activated Jetpack.

DO NOT USE - WILL NUKE YOUR SITE
By , for WP 4.2.2

I can not stress this enough.

DO NOT USE THIS PLUGIN.

Added it to my site & instantly it took it offline, deleted it via the WP dashboard, which created further problems as it wasn't a full delete.

Had to got into the FTP files & track down the rest of the code causing problems.

Can't actually believe Automatic think it's ok to continue hawking this around.
AVOID AT ALL COSTS

YIKES!! 5 STARS FOR THE WORST PLUGIN
By , for WP 4.2.2

PLEASE BACKUP YOUR DATABASE FIRST!

Install if need to disable your entire site
By , for WP 4.2.2

As soon as I installed and activated, entire site was nuked. What a pain in the ass, this plugin should be deleted from the repository until the developers fix it.
