    Thank you!! For non techs it was just great to have a simple video presentation of essential plugins. A big bonus to have access to the slides when considering installation.

    As usual, WordPress totally rocks;-) This video, like the software, is completely grannie friendly.

    thanks this was really helpful as I start my new blog.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but this video is suggesting either W3 Total Cache or WP Super Cache and NOT BOTH together, nor one over the other?

    If I’m incorrect in understanding this please let me know. I’ve been using WP Super Cache for some time, but suspect I’m not getting the performance benefit that I really need and wondering if maybe I should switch.

      You should NOT have them both installed. If you can run W3 Total Cache, I recommend that over Super Cache because of the more expansive options it provides – like minify, CDN, etc.
