Does WP Performance work with Nginx?

WP Performance has support for Nginx servers, but an extra step is required to make it working properly.
Depending on your WP Performance configuration, rewrite rules will be generated and listed under the “Settings” tab. You have to copy and paste generated rules manually into the Nginx config file.

Does WP Performance support WordPress Multisite?

WP Performance supports WordPress Multisite with subdomains.

Where can I get help?

I needed some time to figure it out, But now I end up with a Pagespeed score of 99%. I have removed at least 3 plugins to do the same and I'm sure I haven't optimized all yet. So I'm very pleased.Thanks fot the great work!

Really easy to understand options without useless stuff, but still powerful enough to replace premium plugins. Just one suggestion - while using Autoptimize, they have simple one click CSS/JS Merge, and it works perfectly for 95% of the sites. While here, I need to manually select JS/CSS files for that from list, that's useful as advanced option, but can we do something to auto select best files like autoptimize ? It'll make the work much more simpler. Thanks for the best plugin.

I always like to try new caching plugins, and this one really suprised me. Made my site very quick, and setting it up is very easy. The plugin dashboard is very well done and all the settings are presented clearly. Great plugin!

Easy to use, lot of features but clearly organized, efficient. I clearly see my website faster and it's confirmed with tools as PageSpeed Insights, GTmetrix and Pingdom Tools. Excellent, thx a lot !

WOW and a great thank you to the developers - EXCELLENT. Much easier to use than Swift performance or wp-rocket Faster than Swift Performance No Ads popping up - WONDERFUL - (swift performance is so annoying with their full-page ads) All the features you can ever dream off included. One feature like image optimization can easily be solved by i.e. resmush.it and imsanity, Plugin Organizer, CAOS For WebFonts, WP Disable, WP YouTube Lyte, CAOS | Host Google Analytics Locally, Self-Hosted Google Fonts, Harry’s Gravatar Cache and actually, all of them could be easily be integrated into the existing wp-performance. This plugin is a MUST HAVE and will soon be the standard inside WP if they continue to improve it with the mentioned features. webp can be achieved by using ewww or robin-image-optimizer which uses also the resmush.it api Keep up the great work!
