Posted on the 31 October 2013 by Babanature @proudlyonenaija

Believe it or not w3 Total Cache is the best caching plug-in around. It has all the necessary features to fully optimize any WordPress blog or website. W3TC can speed up any slow blog and it is so powerful that it can crash your blog if you do not configure it properly. As awesome as W3TC is, it is not compatible with most plug-ins especially when you turn on the minify mode but the thing is, we are not talking about compatibility issues or are we?


If you’re using mobile theme to serve your mobile users, you will notice that sometimes it shows your desktop view to your mobile users and sometime it shows your mobile view to your desktop users. Enstine commented about the same issue at one of my blog post and here’s how he put it…
