If you are not experienced in WP don't do this
By , for WP 4.5.3

This plugin seems to be quite good at caching pages however if you are new to wordpress don't put yourself through the pain, trust me.

You may likely hit configuration errors with php and even your site might completely stop working with script errors. So take a backup before activating this!

I have used WordPress for some time now and I also had many errors when I activated this plugin. Thankfully I knew my way around and could restore the corrupted files to get the site working again.

Good plugin otherwise it seems.

Not really impressive as I thought
By , for WP 4.5.2

At first I was so happy, but after a while later I realized that the developers of this plugin isn't that active on their plugin or perhaps they are not much interested in improving it. the user interface is so frustrating, not organized well and cluttered. one of most important function that generates preload contents is broken as it makes issues when caching the home page and therefore the author recommends to turn it off altogether. the cache clearing button on top of the site in menu bar doesn't seem working as clicking on it doesn't clear the cache. today I had to verify my site with yandex and it said that it's unable to do it. so I checked the site through Internet Explorer and found the yandex code doesn't even show in the home page. however the cache button in the setting works. also clicking on the cache button redirects you to the dashboard. not really impressive honestly. I strongly recommend fast cache plugin over this one.

ok with me

Cleared or not cleared
By , for WP 4.4.1

Invariably when I'm testing my site, I'll turn off this plugin. But even when I refresh, clear the browser cache, or clear the WordPress cache, my page may still look the same. I'd be okay if there were rhyme or reason to it. Instead, it seems completely random.

Works but slow
By ,

Every time I make changes to my website I need to manually apply chache to see the changes. That works but I wish I dont have to come back to manually do it.
I will 5 stars when it is fixed.

Thanks anyways.

Doesn't quite work with mobile plugins
By ,

It causes mobile plugins to behave strangely: it loads the mobile version on desktop and vice-versa.

The problem with an SSL
By , for WP 4.3.1

You receive an error after the page opens. Panel administrator is not available. http://prntscr.com/8pquxd

Works 1/2 the time
By , for WP 4.3

I've had fantastic results with this plugin on the first two sites I used it on. It boosted my Google PageSpeed Ratings by 20 points! And after another tweak, it went up another 5 points!

That being said, this plugin is not a one sizes fits all. The next two sites I tried it on, broke the sites with the same settings. I don't know what it was doing but suddenly the server was so overloaded, nothing could load and I had to get my server admin to kill the process it was doing on the server level, after that all the CSS was gone from the site.

Luckily, I had a backup on the server level to restore the site.

So, the takeaway, use this plugin cautiously, it could be awesome or it could be restore time.

Works well but...
By , for WP 4.3

Nice plugin as using plugins often slows a site down considerably. This made a big difference in page load times

All works fine but sadly, it has messes with the theme homepage (premium press) so had to deactivate it.
