Temporarily turn off caching and performance options

Deactivate caching and performance plugins during build phases. Only enable before launch.

Common Caching and Performance plugins: 

  • W3 Total Cache
  • WP Super Cache
  • WP Rocket
  • Sucuri Firewall
  • SG SuperCacher (SiteGround)
  • WP Engine Caching
  • Bluehost Caching
  • WP Smush Pro
  • Perfmatters
  • Cloudflare CDN
  • WP Fastest Cache
  • WP-Optimize
  • Cache Enabler
  • Comet Cache
  • Hyper Cache

Not sure if you are using a performance plugin?

The safest way to test is to deactivate all plugins except the ones required by the theme author.

  • Reference the list below for the theme that you are using.


  1. Yes - Awesome! Keep the plugin deactivated until you are ready to launch your site.
  2. No - Okay, let's try "Temporarily turn off security, maintenance and coming soon plugins" at the bottom of this article.
