  4. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

Will this work on all servers and hosts?
  • If you are using Varnish 3 it should work just fine. I haven’t tried it on other versions.
Are you still developing this plugin?
  • Yes.
Does this work with netowork or multisite installations?
  • I don’t know. I haven’t tried it.
Can I help?
  • Of course! I am in constant need of testers and I would be more than happy to add the right contributor. In addition, I could always use help with translations for internationalization.
