A very fast caching engine for WordPress that produces static html files.
This is a good plugin, but the "Clear Cache" link in the adminbar is not working.
There are old support cases unanswered for years!! You will get no support for problems like this.
This plugin is not usefull for professional websites !!
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.
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.
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!
it creates a hassle of having to delete cache which causes issues with many plugins. good otherwise.
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.
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.
It causes blank backend pages on some servers. That forced me to uninstall and use an other cache plugin.
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.
This is an unsupported plugin, with some problems.
No help either at the forums. I'm surprised with so many good reviews.
