I've got a newbie question should I install W3 Total Cache before
my plugins & theme or after there installed.

    Don't think it makes any difference. I've had that plugin come ready installed with themes and I've had to install it myself on some of my higher traffic sites.

    It doesn't make any difference at all. I recently installed W3-TC on a site that's been running for 4 years.

    Cheers,

    Martin.

    Personally, I never activate a cache plugin until I have the site up exactly how I like it.

    The number of forehead slapping moments I've had screaming, "Why hasn't that updated?!!".....

      Completely agree
      Now everytime I update a site I have to empty the page cache. That would be the only downpoint to installing W3 before plugins and theme.

    Usually you can setup the cache last, it can mislead you when viewing edits by showing you the cached pre-edit version. You can get by without caching until you start getting significant traffic.

    That w3...cache is one of the more complicated ones, particularly if your going to setup an S3 account for max performance.

    Thanks I'll do it after everything's installed then.
