How to use WP Super Cache

Guide on how to install and configure the WP Super Cache plugin

A cache plugin generates static pages and improves the site page speed. The cached pages are stored in the memory. When a user makes a request, the process skips the PHP execution and the database requests and delivers the pages from the cache.

WP Super Cache Plugin installation:

  1. Go to WP-Admin area, open the Plugins -> Add new section. Press on the Upload Plugin
  2. Use the search bar to look for WP Super Cache and install the plugin.

WP Super Cache Plugin configuration:

To set up the plugin, you have to go to the wp-admin area and open the plugin settings pane. It’s located in Setting->WP Super Cache. We tested this plugin, and we recommend the following configuration:

  • Enable caching. (Recommended)
  • Caching delivery method. Simple.


  • Don’t cache pages for known users. (Recommended)
  • Compress pages, so they’re served more quickly to visitors. (Recommended)
  • Cache rebuild. Serve a supercache file to anonymous users while a new file is being generated. (Recommended)
  • 304 Not Modified browser caching. Indicate when a page has not been modified since last requested. (Recommended)


  • Mobile device support. (External plugin or theme required. See the FAQ for further details.)
  • Clear all cache files when a post or page is published or updated.
  • Only refresh current page when comments made.
  • List the newest cached pages on this page.

    • Hi,

      The guide mentions the recommended configuration for the super cache plugin. Try and set it up like that, there should be no problem. If there is a problem please send us an email at and mention as many details as possible.

      Thank you!

        • Hi,

Unfortunately, the Blog area is not assigned to the Customer Support Center. I’m sorry! Thank you so much for understanding. Stay Safe!

    • Hi,

      Unfortunately, at the moment, only that caching plugin was tested with our theme. You are free to use any plugin you want but please note that we cannot say for sure if it will work or not as expected with our theme, sorry!

      Thank you!

  1. Please test and make it compatible with WP Rocket as well. A lot of people rely of WP Rocket for a lot of things that these free plugins can’t do.

    • Hi,

      Thank you for your suggestion but please note that we do not have any plan to integrate that plugin in our theme. It was tested once but because it is problematic with the theme, it was removed.

      Best regards!

  2. GoDaddy has disabled that plugin and it is saying that it’s unavailable. According to GoDaddy, they already have their caching system for wordpress managed websites so it will conflict with that and it will create more caching request which the effect the website. Is that true?

          • I don’t need support. I only wonder why in configuration of the plugin you are using Simple but not Expert Cache Delivery Methode.

          • Hi,

            Thank you for the message! Please note that we have chosen this way because this method is recommended and suggested by the plugin and also, that method can be used by most theme users who do not have any programming skills. Please note that the Expert mode is dedicated only for the Advanced users. (“Expert caching requires changes to important server files and may require manual intervention if enabled.“).

            Thank you for your understanding!

      • @Catalin L. – The person was not asking for support, they asked why the “…extra homepage checks…” option was not suggested (it’s a standard feature of that plugin).

        • Hi,

          I believe it was on oversight on our part when making the screenshot, the respective setting is recommended and should be active. We will correct the mistake in the guide. We are sorry for the confusion.

          Thank you!

  3. Thanks for this. Just set up my tech blog about apps & mobiles recently using Newspaper theme & this helped me a lot.

  4. hello team newspaperx,

    first of all a big congratulations for the next level of newspaperx, i am a big fan of this theme and all the demos, i have previously used this theme but unfortunately i have to leave because the theme is not comfortable with WP Rocket, i am also a huge big fan of WP Rocket.
    My Question is:-
    1. When We Will Get The Option Of Increasing/Decreasing The Width Option(I DON’T WANT TO MENTION ANY THEME NAME HERE. Like few themes have on Google)
    2. When Newspaper Will Test WP Rocket on Their Theme???

    • Hi,

      Thank you for your message! Please not that our theme can be used in full width mode but only if you will adjust the width for each ROW, like this -> Unfortunately, this account is not assigned to our support forum and that’s why, if you need more technical assistance, you have to open a new support ticket at our support forum from here -> where you need to provide more details about your problem and we are ready to help you.

      All the best!

    My website speed is very low.tell me how to increase it and if possible without Wp super cache plugin.
    Please help

    • Hi,

      We could take a look and try to help. If there are problems with the cache you are using, they are most likely caused by the settings in the cache. Perhaps some of them have to be disabled, or configured differently. So if there are problems and you want us to check, please send us an email at and provide a link to the website, admin login, and details about the problems that are happening on the website due to the cache.

      Thank you!
