Being on Shared hosting, having a good cache plugin is very important for any WordPress blog, and from last 3 years I’m playing with two of such plugins: W3 total cache and WP super cache. At the time of writing, I’m using Super cache plugin.
At times, W3 total cache plugin works great and on some server Super cache. I also use Wp touch plugin to give a mobile compatibility view to my site. Today, when I was checking my site on iPhone, I realized it’s loading complete site and not mobile compatible version. I opened Wp touch settings and all looks great.
Most of the time, when I’m fixing a problem in WordPress, I usually disable other plugins or atleast disable cache plugin. I opened Super cache settings and I see this message:
“WPTouch plugin detected! Please go to the Supercache plugins page and enable the WPTouch helper plugin.”
I have never seen such kind of message before, and after bit of playing around, I found this nifty plugins tab under Super cache settings. If you are also facing the similar issue with Wp touch plugin not working, here is a qucik work around for this.
- Go to Settings > Super cache
- See if you are also getting similar error as above screnshot
- Click on plugins tab
- Enable Wp touch support and update the settings
Quite easy to activate and seems like Super cache have pushed all plugins option under this tab, which will be useful for us to quickly manage settings.
Also, once you have enabled the plugin support, make sure to go to Super cache .htaccess settings (Advanced) and update the mod-rewrite rule. As , your WordPress .htaccess file needs to be updated to reflect and enable the changes. Keep in mind, if your Htaccess file is not updated, you might not see the changes.
Quick workaround, but useful for those who are using Super cache and Wp touch plugin. Have you seen such kind of problem earlier? Which cache plugin and mobile optimization plugin are you using on your WordPress blog?
