WordPress can sometimes put some pressure onto the server, especially when there is a lot of hits. To prevent slowdowns of blogs, its always a good idea to install some sort of caching plugin to make pages load faster. These plugins basically cache the pages as HTML files. This way, WordPress don’t have to generate the page every time a visitor views it.
The two most popular caching plugins used by Anime bloggers is WP Super Cache and W3 Total Cache. Both of them pretty much give the same amount performance, but W3 Total Cache allows the use of CDN networks. Unless you have one, there is really no advantage to use it over Super Cache.
To install Super Cache, login to your WordPress Dashboard > Plugins > Add Plugin. Search for WP Super Cache and then install and activate the plugin.
Note: If you are using WPtouch 1.9.x/2.0, follow the settings on this screenshot.
Once activated, go to Settings > WP Super Cache. If you are not using Bad Behavior or mobile plugins, go ahead and set the Super Cache to ON. If you are using Bad Behavior or Mobile Plugins, you need to set Super Cache “Half ON.”
In addition to the new settings, you may also want to check “Don’t cache pages for known users,” “Clear all cache files when post or page is published” and “Cache rebuild” for a better experience.
Once you have finished setting the desired options, click “Update Status” above the Cache Tester. Afterwards, WP Super Cache should be turned on and pages on your blog should load a lot faster.
