WP Super Cache

WP Super Cache seems to be the optimal caching plugin, currently. It turns dynamically created files into static files and updates the cache.

Here are the suggested settings. Note, by default, assume everything is off or disabled, unless otherwise mentioned.

Each heading is the section name. Once complete, go into the Preload tab and click Preload Cache Now. Then, after the page loads, go to the Easy tab and click Test Cache. If it doesn't tell you everything is perfect, contact your Tech Guru.

  • Cache rebuild. Serve a supercache file to anonymous users while a new file is being generated.

  • Clear all cache files when a post or page is published or updated.

  • IF YOU HAVE WP_eMember or WP_eStore or anyting by Tips and Tricks HQ ACTIVATED: Late Init
Cache Timeout: 1800

Add here strings (not a filename) that forces a page not to be cached. For example, if your URLs include year and you dont want to cache last year posts, it’s enough to specify the year, i.e. ’/2004/’. WP-Cache will search if that string is part of the URI and if so, it will not cache that page.


Add here those filenames that can be cached, even if they match one of the rejected substring specified above.
