WordPress caching plugins are notorious for being packed full of confusing options, spammy with upsells, and difficult to uninstall. Users who are looking for a caching solution that simply works and has nothing to configure should check out Simple Cache, a new plugin on WordPress.org that offers a one-click install. The plugin promises lightning fast speed with a simple on/off switch.
After investigating some of the popular caching solutions for WordPress, Taylor Lovett found most of them to have cluttered interfaces that make them unnecessarily complex to configure. Lovett, who has worked with many different caching solutions as Director of Web Engineering at 10up, decided to create his own implementation that would be easy for users to work with, hence the name Simple Cache.
“I wrote my comparison blog post with no plans of creating my own caching plugin,” Lovett said. “After doing the research, I had a few ideas on how to create a plugin that would really have a positive impact on websites.”
