Latest News: I added another tutorial to the list below.
Hyper is a small and easy plugin to configure. In comparison to other complex cache plugins in WordPress repository, there is not much to this plugin. However the few options it provides, it allows your website to load very fast. To further increase your site speed and loading time you might also want to use a couple more plugins. Make sure these other plugins play well with Hyper Cache. This will require some testing.

Hyper Cache Personal Settings Steps
Step 1 ) Go to Settings -> Hyper Cache -> General to set up the following personal settings that are currently set up in this website. You might want to add the same settings as me or you might want to choose your own settings.
Cached pages will be valid for = 192 hours
Enable compression = checked
When a post is edited = clean archives (categories, tags, …, but not the home) and clean the home
When a post receives a comment = clean archives (categories, tags, …, but not the home)
Next autoclean will run in = enabled

Step 2 ) Go to Settings -> Hyper Cache -> Bypasses. I have enabled the following option.

Step 3 ) Go to Settings -> Hyper Cache -> Mobile.
Working mode = Cache separately
Mobile theme = Use the active blog theme
The theme I am using in this website is Suffusion. This is a very fast and well developed theme by Sayontan.
Step 4 ) Go to Settings -> Hyper Cache -> CDN. I have not enabled any option here because currently I have no CDN account set up yet. This is something that I am currently contemplating however I am yet to decide.
As you can see from above there is not much to set up Hyper Cache. However this small but powerful plugin is helping my site run and load up fast.
