    Hello roomies!!

    I was considering using Super-Cache to speed up my WP blog

    I had read in an article somewhere a guy was complaining because the
    "cached-snapshot" of his site was not updated when he placed new content and new posts on his site

    so visitors only saw the older "cached" version of his site?

    OK I know it does cache your database or whatever for faster speed
    that's the purpose, but what about when you post new content....
    then what???

    Is there a way to get it to UPDATE when you want a newer cached version of your site to display, after you posted newer content???

    your feedback is really appreciated! No really it is! :)

    Hali~!:)

    I used to use WP Super Cache, but it was overly complicated and I ran into a few issues. Usually most caching plugins will expire the cached content for a specific page or post upon update of that post.

    I now use Quick Cache. It is a lot easier to use IMO, and it has great descriptions of what each setting does on the backend.

    thanks oakley,

    Very helpful, gave you "rep" for the help!

    yes the more I search for an answer the more I find people saying that there are better options out there than "super-cache"

    what type of speed increase has anyone seen?
    any other suggestions on what particular plugin works best
    for caching?

    hali~!:)

    Been using WP Super Cache for a few years. Frequently updated items like front page content, new posts, and comments are handled automatic in the latest versions, and can be customized in UCP further. Need to remember to temp delete cache and expired cache pages while you edit or change site or it will give you lots of aggrivation. Also, WPSC has had some issues on certain hosts like G-daddy and a few more. Many are corrected, but I am on HG for most. Still recomend trying for high volume sites. Their support forum is good, not great.

    Haven't tried Quick Cache mentioned by oakley56fila, but have heard it covers lots of needs simpler.

    I can recommend w3 total cache as another great caching plugin for WP. It does a great job on my sites and even goes steps further in optimization such as minifying javascript, css, html output etc..
