I have not turned on any of the basic options, does WP Rocket work?

Yes.

The basic options are additional optimizations that could be described as bonuses. These options are not essential to improve the loading time of your website.

Whatever your WP Rocket configuration is, the following features will still be active:

  • Caching of all the pages for quick viewing
  • Decrease bandwidth usage with our GZIP compression
  • Management of the headers (expires, etags...)
  • Images Optimisation
