    Thanks for this very useful list. The readers have to know that all these plugins should not be installed at the same time. For example, if you are using w3 total cache, there is no need to install quick cache. Same for seos plugins.

      Thanks for pointing that out Aurelien, indeed you should use only one caching plugin.

    It’s been a while since I’ve attempted to use a caching plugin. Can you explain the downsides of it? Does it stop dynamic client side functionality? I heard something along those lines. Must check it out. What’s your preference – super cache or total cache.

      Both are good, but WP Super Cache is easier to set up in my opinion.

    “Does it stop dynamic client side functionality?” Indeed, they can cause issues with e-commerce plugins.

    “What’s your preference – super cache or total cache.” Mine is Super Cache by all means, but everybody have different experiences, it’s personal.

      Do you prefer Super Cache because it’s easier to set up Ivica?

        Yes, it’s easier to setup, but with W3T I had also some issues on particular sites so I gave up…

    Very good article 😉
    Image optimization is one of the most important things!
    You shold use SVG where it is possible – theres one WP plugin for basic SVG support:
    and use JPG instead of PNG if there is no transparency:
    …you can optimize images much more by using this out of WordPress:
    SVG: https://jakearchibald.github.io/svgomg
    JPG/PNG: http://compresspng.com OR software http://nikkhokkho.sourceforge.net/static.php?page=FileOptimizer
