    Lovett plans to add more features and improve upon his implementation based on feedback from the community.

    Many of the caching plugins didn’t start out as complicated as they are today. This looks like a great plugin — I’d hate for it to lose it’s way and become a total caching ( ;) ) plugin. KISS!

      It is inevitable that it will become complicated. Invariably you’ll end up serving stale content and people will complain and you’ll have to add an exception for that particular use-case. Then that will break something else and you have to fix that and so on.

      Besides it’s no fun caching stuff for an hour. Most sites don’t get enough traffic for that to save any server resources. You have to cache for days. That’s where you get into trouble with nonces expiring and what not.

      I can see this with WP Rocket. Slowly but continuously buttons and checkboxes are coming with each update.
      The last update even takes care about Emojis ;)

    Looks awesome! Thank you Taylor for your work on this plugin.

    As fortune would have it, I’m going to be presenting on WordPress performance optimization at WordCamp San Diego next weekend. I’ve become a Comet Cache guy, but I will check this one out and maybe even give it a little plug :)

    This looks excellent.

    There is also Spider Cache by John James Jacoby which looks very promising

    Looks like the perfect solution for NutritionRealm.com My partner and I was just thinking about slicing out a byte of our advertising budget for WP Rocket.

    We’ll try this out first,

    Thanks for sharing.

    This plugin is definitely filling a gap. Hope Taylor will maintain it for a long time.

    On his blog plugin author complains that other plugins do not provide sufficient information about what methods of caching they use. But in fact he doesn’t provide any information about this in WP or Github index page too.

    For example I was looking for info if his plugin was using Mod_Rewrite, but could not find any info.

    Hi Sarah,

    This plugin looks very simple. I have been using WP Super Cache for a long time. I also used W3 Total Cache for a while.

    Going to give it try. Let’s see if this works for me.

    Thank you

    Another simple, yet elegant solution is WP Fastest cache. It has done the job for us quite well on 20+ websites.

    This sounds great! I’m always looking for simpler cache solutions. I’ve used the popular great big ones, and even though I’m geekie, I don’t want mission control. :) I’d rather sacrifice a few options and a pinch of speed if I can get something that’s easy to set up and manage.

    Thanks for the tip!

    Installed this plugin last week based on this recommendation (Just Install and your done… simple)
    …but was dismayed to realise yesterday that non logged in users (all those pesky site visitors we’re trying to attract by regular news updates) were being served a week old site with none of our updates.
    Since there are no settings (I am aware of) I’m not sure how long that would have been the case.
