Hello everyone, today im going to talk about the WP Fastest Cache Options panel in detail. We will go over the wp fastest cache settings sections. Moreover, We will go over each setting in addition to the recommended setting for the best results.
A small note before we begin, we will be going over the free version of the plugin. Finally, without any further delay, let’s begin.
WP Fastest Cache Options Panels
WP Fastest Cache comes with a Tab layout interface. However, the main tabs you need to concern yourself about in the free version are:
- The Main & First Settings Tab.
- Delete Cache Tab
- CDN Tab for inputting your CDN Provider API keys for auto integration.
Let’s go over each setting to understand what it does.
Turns Caching On/Off – you need to check that box in order to enable the caching.
Caching files are created upon a user’s visit to that specific page. However, you will want to preload the cache beforehand by yourself. Making it already existent to new users. Keep in mind that this is a recommended feature and it works great, check that box and in the popup panel that follows you will have to check all pages.
3.Logged In Users
It’s a simple, yet handy feature. You can turn off caching for logged in users. For instance: let’s say you are developing some sort of a new section of the website, you dont want the plugin to cache that page due to the simple fact you are still making rapid changes to it. Therefore, you can check this box to prevent caching for logged in users.
Finally, a word of caution, if your website runs WooCommerce, and you have a rich user panel, be advised that the plugin won’t cache these pages too.
This setting is a bit of dumb on its own. its counterpart to be complete is separate caching files and cache mobile and desktop user files separately. That allows for a more optimized way of custom cache delivery to speed things up on both fronts, mobile, and desktop. Mobile users get mobile pages, desktop users get desktop pages.
To sum up, without the pro feature, it’s kind of useless. no sense in checking this setting on the free version of wp fastest cache.
5.New Post & Update Post
Naturally, when the content changes or you add new content, you will want to cache it. These two options allow for auto caching upon post publish or update. It is recommended that you check these boxes.
6.Minify HTML & Minify CSS
let’s cover these two together. It’s pretty simple, the caching plugin will remove all spaces from all files and templates. “Minifying” them for a reduction of size and ultimately a faster asset delivery due to that fact.
This is an old feature, due to the fact that nowadays, almost all hosting companies run HTTP2 Protocol, making this redundant on many occasions. However, if somehow, your host is running the older protocol, check these boxes. Finally, you should be advised that it might break the site’s layout. Experiment with this and shut it off if something is not right
95 percent of the time this will break something on your website. As mentioned above, the combination of requests and files into one is redundant on HTTP2 servers. Do not check it unless you know your web host runs the old version.
GZIP is a compression module capable of running on your web resources. Its highly recommended that you check this box and allow it to run. Furthermore, in most cases, it won’t break your site so you’re good. However, if such problems occur, uncheck it.
One of the most crucial settings. First of all, you want this on. It activates the browser’s cache mechanism, to cache and store assets and resources. Resulting in even faster loading times.
A handy feature, what it does is to disable the script load of the Emoji files on WordPress. However, it will, of course, disable the Emoji embedded content sitewide. Check it if you really want to, it’s not very significant.
Delete Cache Tab
The next wp fastest cache settings section I want to go over is the Delete Cache Tab. As the name implies, its sole purpose is to house the delete control of the cache files. In addition to the delete cache button, it also houses a second function which not only deletes cache files but also assets cache files like CSS/JS cached files.
Finally, you should know you can use its timing function to schedule auto-deletion.
our final WP Fastest Cache Options tab. This one is also straight forward, if you want to integrate a CDN service onto your website, you can use the auto integration Wp fastest cache provides. You achieve this by inputting your CDN keys into the interface of the provider of your choice.(for instance: Cloudflare CDN)
