    "Cache Pages" keeps a copy of the whole page so it will save database queries and server resource. It is possible to render page with 0 database query, page time is cut by half in all cases (usually more, up to two third of the actual render time). The feature works with or without a cache backend, it will store data in internal data directory if no cache backend is configured.

    "CSS to file" simply copies the result of css.php and put it into a static file in external data directory. Normally, a request to css.php will ask for some combination of CSS templates (not just one), the add-on hashes the requested templates and keep a copy for each combination. That sounds like a lot of wasted space but in practice there are usually less than 30 combinations in used. With this feature enabled, you can setup to serve these stylesheets with a CDN and improve speed further.

    Useful plugin and helped speed up my site and reduce server load just as I wanted. I rated 4 stars because I personally don't like how paying for your add-ons work (as in technically you pay $5/m versus $5 one-time).

    After having upgraded to a VPS and working towards tweaking and optimizing for the best possible performance, I came across this add-on. I had two options, [bd] Cache by xfrocks for $5 or the LiteSpeed cache add-on with having to pay an extra $6 every month for a upgraded LiteSpeed license.

    After reading the discussion and having used other add-ons from xfrocks, I selected this add-on! The installation was a breeze, and the set-up is very easy, works out of the box perfectly for those who want to benefit without tweaking much.

    The amount of guests we receive is very high on certain days, and I have seen improved server performance thanks to this add-on, have also noticed bandwidth conservation. The advantage with this add-on is that you could have it running on a shared set-up too! It doesn't require a VPS as such, if I had come across it sooner I would have been using it for a longer time!

    Thank you xfrocks, not only for this add-on but all your quality add-ons. Well worth the $5!

    Buggy software, it rendered pages useless so I had to uninstall after 2 minutes. Even if I tweaked the settings and disabled the JS defer option. I don't have a heavily modified Xenforo install.
