Cache Enabler – WordPress Cache


WordPress Cache Engine

The Cache Enabler plugin creates static HTML files and stores them on the servers disk. The web server will deliver the static HTML file and avoids the resource intensive backend processes (core, plugins and database). This WordPress cache engine will improve the performance of your website.


  • Efficient and fast disk cache engine
  • Automated and/or manual clearing of the cache
  • Manually purge the cache of specific pages
  • Display of the actual cache size in your dashboard
  • Minification of HTML and inline JavaScript
  • WordPress multisite support
  • Custom Post Type support
  • Expiry Directive
  • Support of 304 Not Modified if the page has not modified since last cached
  • WebP Support (when combined with Optimus)
  • Supports responsive images via srcset since WP 4.4
  • Works perfectly with Autoptimize
  • HTTP/2 Focused

Cache Enabler is the first WP plugin to allow you to serve WebP images without JavaScript and also fully supports srcset since WP 4.4. WebP is a new image format that provides lossless and lossy compression for images on the web. WebP lossless images are 26% smaller in size compared to PNGs.

How does the caching work?

This plugin requires minimal setup time and allows you to easily take advantage of the benefits that come from using WordPress caching.

The WordPress Cache Enabler has the ability to create 2 cached files. One is plain HTML and the other version is gzipped (gzip level 9). These static files are then used to deliver content faster to your users without any database lookups or gzipping as the files are already pre-compressed.

When combined with Optimus, the WordPress Cache Enabler allows you to easily deliver WebP images. The plugin will check your upload directory for any JPG or PNG images that have an equivalent WebP file. If there is, the URI of these image will be cached in a WebP static file by Cache Enabler. It is not required for all images to be converted to WebP when the « Create an additional cached version for WebP image support » option is enabled. This will not break any images that are not in WebP format. The plugin will deliver images that do have a WebP equivalent and will fall back to the JPG or PNG format for images that don’t.

No search engines more

Have install this plugin on several wordpress sites and in all sites i have lose all search engines links. No visiter have come anymore bij a search engine.

Real strange. Have switch off the plugin and the same day the problem wase gone

Couldn’t be happier!

I have several multisite setups, and KeyCDN’s plugins made it super easy and simple to manage all of them. Cache Enabler just needed a single checkbox to setup without any issues at all.

They have enough tutorials and guides that helped me ensure a proper setup, which took barely any effort. I was worried I might’ve been missing something, but after contacting support, they quickly responded and verified my websites were loading correctly. Pretty easy!

It feels great using easy tools. Definitely going to keep using these!

Great solution

My hosting providers performance was a bit slow. This plugin made that a non-issue for me.

Simple and fast

Used a few different caching plugins and ended up liking this the best out of all that I tried. It’s simple, fast, and a really small plugin. It has made my blog perform much better.

The other thing that has helped me is now serving webp (smaller images) on my website. I love it! A big thank you to the development team behind this.
