How does this happen:
Why do you need this plugin:
For which sites "Super Cache" will be most effective:
Integration with plugins:
"Super Cache" - works at the first stage, making the page instantaneous for users. And "Critical CSS" works in the second stage by speeding up rendering, that is, the visual rendering of the page.
It is also worth considering that the number of Pagespeed Insights points is added up based on the pages already received, that is, the second stage of loading speed, rendering speed, is analyzed. The faster the page of your site is visually rendered, the higher the scores.
And often, many sites have high Pagespeed Insights scores, but pages load slowly for users, have a delay before loading, or vice versa sites have low Pagespeed Insights scores, but pages load quickly for users.
Plugin bundle "Super Cache" + "Critical CSS" speeds up the site at the same time in two stages of loading, which allows you to get high scores on the Pagespeed Insights service and instantly load pages for users even on a weak server or during periods of high traffic. And also both plugins improve Core Web Vitals, which has a positive effect on SEO.
Installing and activating caching:
In the plugin settings, click "Enable caching" and "Configure Server Rules".
For the Apache and Apache+Nginx: web server, after saving the settings, the configured rules will be displayed in the plugin settings, they must be set independently in the topmost .htaccess file located in the root of your site (Mod_rewrite module and .htaccess support must be enabled on the server).
For the Nginx: web server, after saving the settings, the configured rules will be displayed in the plugin settings, they must be installed in the server configuration file yourself. Instructions and video instructions are in the plugin settings. (Requires access to the server config file and the ability to restart the server after making changes.)
The plugin is not guaranteed to work on other web servers!
How to check the work:
You must go to any of the pages of the "Store" application as an unauthorized user (it is best to use a different browser). The page counter in the plugin settings should increase. So the plugin is working.
To accurately measure the performance of a plugin, you need to measure the page load speed manually, through the browser console, and not using speed measurement sites, because they give erratic and inaccurate results with every request.
To manually measure the page loading speed. Visit the cached page as an unauthorized user. Open the browser console, go to the "Network" tab, select the "Document"/"HTML" type, the console will display the name of the page you are on with the download data (type, size, speed, etc.). Then clear the cache and disable caching, do it all over again and compare the results.
After enabling and configuring the plugin, go to the site from another browser and check the correctness of the site (from mobile and desktop devices). If something is wrong, write to technical support.
