You are, of course, free to deviate from our recommended settings, but we can not guarantee proper operation of the plugin.

A caching plugin makes a copy of all your pages and messages. This can make certain adjustments to your website not immediately visible. If you find that this is the case, you can clear the cache by clicking Delete Cache under the Easy tab.


Step 1. Log in to WordPress.

Step 2. In the left menu, click Plugins and then New plugin at the top of the page.

Step 3. In the upper right corner of the search bar, enter WP Super Cache and press enter.

Step 4. Click Install Now under WP Super Cache. After the installation is completed, click Activate.

Step 5. Hold your mouse over the Settings menu and click on WP Super Cache.

Step 6. Under Caching, select Caching On (Recommended) and click Update Status.

Step 7. Chances are you will see a notification. Because you have just installed WP Super Cache, it does not apply to you. Click Dismiss to close the notification. It's not bad if you do not see the report.

Step 8. Click the Advanced tab. Make sure that you make the following settings. Scroll down and click Update Status.

Step 9. Congratulations! You have successfully installed, activated, and set WP Super Cache.
