Safe to leave caching enabled for Wordpress admin?

#1

Hey all,

I’ve read quite a few threads / articles on this but haven’t been able to get a definitive answer. I know I need to make sure wp-admin isn’t falling under a “cache everything” rule but other than that, can I leave regular caching, rocket loader etc on? The dashboard is faster when it’s on and I’ve got clients that regularly work from their dashboards (eg. entering customer notes or manual Woocommerce orders etc). The extra snappiness makes a big difference to them.

I’ve tried just about every admin page and button and they all work fine. Are there any gotchas I need to be aware of or other reasons why this is a bad idea?

Cheers!

Default caching is safe. Only when you start mucking with a Cache Everything Page Rule does it get tricky with WordPress.
