couple of things to fix/add prior

if you are using cloudflare, you have to uncheck minify HTML, otherwise you get timestamp errors.

also, if you are using custom htacess and mod_rewrite, wp-cache will throw their code, willy nilly in there. I like a tidy commented htaccess because I am not that good at it and its nice to have comments to know what does which.

the mod_rewrite will really speed up vs php- but the htacess issue for me it didnt work at all and blew out my site, it wouldn't load after a couple hours. you may get different results.

Nice plugin but afraid of security

I'm not a big fan of Cache plugins and according to John Mueller (Google Switzerland) in a Google Hangout (april 2015) said that the "speed" of your website doesn't change your Google Ranking.

For the security i prefer using a cloud instead of a Cache plugin
This one is good & free.
But I try a paid plugin also good call WP Rocket.

Works - but be careful!
By , for WP 4.2.1

This plugin did resolve some issues and did increase site performance but, like most other cache plugins, it can create a lot of issues if you're working on your site often.

I had to uninstall this plugin because it was preventing return visitors from seeing new content, new designs. When a return visitor would come to the site they'd see the same exact pages they saw the first time.

After uninstalling Super Cache I was working on a redesign of the front page - nothing was working correctly. Took me two days to figure it out - the plugin was removed but it left files and folders on the web server that were still operational, just not caching everything, and not caching things consistently so it was a nightmare trying to track down what was happening. That should not happen - uninstall should UNINSTALL!

When I removed the things this plugin left on my server, everything was good again. So my site went from 800ms to load to 2 seconds. For me I'd rather have the 2 second site load and visitors seeing fresh content. However, if you have mostly static content, this plugin does work!

causes issues with other plugins

it creates a hassle of having to delete cache which causes issues with many plugins. good otherwise.

Not bad
By , for WP 4.1.1

I would've given it 5 stars, but "Delete cache" admin bar menu does exactly nothing. And it's been this way for as long as it's been there.

What I'd like to see is a functional "Delete" admin pedal that purges all cached files and starts the preload process right away.

Doesn't not refresh well
By , for WP 4.1.1

It works but it doesnn't update well…for instance if I update un article, wy page
website.com/blog will remain the same.
The same happens if I change setting in my theme.

There are a lot of case like that and working with this plugin make things complicated.

Prolems in some servers
By , for WP 4.1

It causes blank backend pages on some servers. That forced me to uninstall and use an other cache plugin.

Great but...
By , for WP 4.1

Using this plugin for years (with multiple hosters) now and there's always that blank page syndrome.

Randomly website crashes and shows blank page. When lockdown is enable I don't have this issue. It may has a problem when deleting old cache files.

I'll probably wait for a last update but I'm seriously thinking to switch to W3 Total Cache or another.

Not well Supported, with problems
By , for WP 4.1.1

This is an unsupported plugin, with some problems.

No help either at the forums. I'm surprised with so many good reviews.

muy bueno
