Plugins and themes not compatible with WP Rocket

In this article, you will find the list of plugins and themes which are not compatible with WP Rocket.

These plugins and themes are preventing WP Rocket's caching and/or optimizations due to one of the following reasons:

  • Incorrect PHP output buffering clearing.
  • Set of the DONOTCACHEPAGE constant to TRUE.
  • One of their specific options is not compatible with WP Rocket.

Plugins with incorrect PHP buffering

In these cases, the process in which WP Rocket's applies the optimizations is interrupted by the incorrect handling of the PHP buffer. Unfortunately, there's no available fix for this problem.

Plugins that set the DONOTCACHEPAGE constant to TRUE


In some cases, using the force page caching approach allows WP Rocket to work. 

However, keep in mind that forcing page caching when using these plugins is going to override a third party decision. This action can break the features that were not compatible with page caching. 

Therefore, this fix should be monitored carefully.

Plugins making an incorrect use of WP Rocket's options

  • Cookie Cracker
    • Prevents caching and optimizations by automatically setting cookies to the site, and programmatically setting those same cookies to the Never Cache Cookies option.
  • CURCY - WooCommerce Multi-Currency Premium
    • Prevents caching and optimizations by using mandatory cookies, but only setting some of them.
    • Also prevents caching and optimizations, by not removing the mandatory cookies after the plugin is deactivated.
  • Plugin for Google Reviews
    • This plugin is using our pre_get_rocket_option_remove_unused_css_safelist filter in a wrong way to set an item in our Remove Unused CSS safe list.
    • This prevents the Remove Unused CSS' Safe list to be saved or modified.
  • Ti WooCommerce Wishlist
    • Automatically prevents caching if the tinv_wishlist cookie is set. However, the cookie seems to be set without reason, unnecessarily preventing caching.
  • Weglot
    • Automatically sets weglot_wp_rocket_cache as mandatory cookie. Therefore, it's required to use their feature: Other options > Auto redirection. This option will allow partial compatibility between the plugins.
