Cache Enabler


Cache Enabler is a simple, yet powerful WordPress caching plugin that is easy to use, needs minimal configuration, and best of all helps improve site performance for a faster load time. It creates static HTML files of frontend pages and stores them on the server’s disk. This allows the static HTML files to be delivered instead of generating pages on the fly, avoiding resource intensive backend processes from the WordPress core, plugins, and database.


  • Fast and efficient cache engine
  • Automatic smart cache clearing
  • Manual cache clearing
  • WP-CLI cache clearing
  • Cache expiry
  • WebP support (convert images to WebP with Optimus)
  • Mobile support
  • Brotli and Gzip pre-compression support
  • Minification of HTML excluding or including inline CSS and JavaScript
  • Real-time cache size display in the WordPress dashboard
  • Compatible con tipos de contenido personalizado
  • 304 Not Modified support
  • Funciona perfectamente con Autoptimize

¿Cómo funciona la caché?

Cache Enabler captures page contents and saves it as a static HTML file on the server’s disk. The static HTML file created can be one of several possible cache versions depending on the plugin settings and HTTP request. Accepted static HTML files are then delivered without any database queries or on the fly compression, allowing for a quicker page load.

I have used many caching plugins, but this one is the best when it comes to simplicity with performance. You don’t always need a bunch of options, sometimes less is more.

So far I have used W3 Total Cache, WP Super Cache, WP Fastest Cache…I can say with surety that The Cache Enabler is the only real Cache plugin….Page Optimization is not caching…..Cache Enabler works with the latest version of Wordpress….Please use a dedicate page Optimization for better result…I use Perfmatter….

It is very fast, better than other more famous cache plugins; in combination with Cloudflare it works very well in my Woocommemrce site too.

Been trying to find a good solution for page caching for a while and even though plugins like Hummingbird look great, and don’t work too bad (honestly), I needed something easier. Found that in Cache Enabler! Just takes about 5 checkboxes in my case, and it took off about a second or almost two. For simple sites this is now my goto plugin for caching for sure.
