?WordFence is a security plugin. It does not do caching like the caching plugins do.

Quick question for Steve - doesn't WordFence do caching?  Why have a caching plugin like Super Cache or W3 Total Cache?  We are having performance issues and I'm wondering if the caching from WordFence is not adequate.

Wordfence (install this NOW!!!!)
iThemes Security
Enable media replace - super handy
Duplicate post - good for templates that you can copy
Google sitemap generator
Relevanssi - improves search capability
WP DB Manager - archives DB backup
A caching plugin like Super Cache or W3 Total Cache

Otherwise, it looks great!

Thx - Steve

Hello all,
We launched our new WP site on Monday, a year in the making. (switched from Ektron)
Everything was done in-house. (I am a one man show here, with the support of our marketing staff)
Everything on the site is new (content, images, hosting, CMS, etc.) - we started with a blank slate.

I still have lots to do, but we needed to launch before the students came back.
Please let me know your thoughts:
