Welcome to the WP Fastest Cache WordPress Plugin guide, which is an extremely fast and simple WordPress cache plugin. A cache is used to transparently store data so the process of bringing up that data on request at a later date can be served faster.

Step 1) First of all, you need to install the plugin, which starts with heading to your Dashboard and choosing ‘Plugins’ from the left-hand sidebar.

Step 2) On the dropdown menu under ‘Plugins’, click on ‘Add New’. This will take you to the Add Plugins page as shown below.

Step 3) In the top right-hand corner, you will see a search box. Use this to add the name of your plugin, and hit ‘Enter’ to start the search.

Step 7) On the options page for the plugin, you are given three options: Settings, Delete Cache and Cache Timeout. On the settings page, you are given multiple options, starting with the initial enabling of the cache system. You have a variety of options available, ranging from who can access the cached version, decreasing the size of the page and CSS files, combining CSS and JS files and reducing the page load times for repeat visitors by caching the broswer. Submit the options when you are finished by hitting the blue button marked ‘Submit’.

Step 8) When you feel like you need to delete the cache, head to the toolbar option marked ‘Delete Cache’ and hit the blue button marked ‘Delete Cache’. This will delete all the cache files. You can also delete the cache and the minified CSS files that are created when you modify the CSS file. Simply hit the blue button marked with those options.

Step 9) The Cache Timeout option allows you to set a time in which the cached files will be deleted, so you don’t have to come back and do it manually. Simply set a time (based on Hour, Minute and Frequency – e.g. once an hour, week, month, etc.) and click on the blue button marked ‘Submit’.
