Why You Should Not Activate any Page Speed Plugin / Module During ProductionLatest update: April 12, 2019 | Reading time: 2 to 3 minutes
Caching and minifying plugins and modules are among the most popular add-ons for WordPress, no wonder why. Although they are not the panacea for long loading times, with moderate use they can speed up your website and, keep your visitors connected for more time.
When it comes to developing your website, those add-ons may interfere with the default functions, resulting in unexpected behavior, that’s why it’s better to keep them off until you’re done.
So, it’s best to finish production first (at least up to the point you expected to) and, then activate the caching. In case you need to keep deploying or revise the website, consider disabling the caching until finished. And, remember, a well-developed website will get a boost from a caching plugin; a poor-developed or bloated website will not get any better this way.
