  1. Add Critical CSS option to the Breeze Cache Plugin

    Add an option to the Breeze caching plugin to generate the critical css for each page. The Autoptimize and Wp Rocket plugins have this feature and it rocks but I've found that your Breeze plugin renders those other plugins features useless. Your plugin alone provides better results than any of those other options. The critical css is the only thing I find to be missing and would greatly improve load times.

  2. Wordpress Manager

    I am well aware of apps like InfiniteWP and ManageWP. The best thing about them is the bulk core and plugin update management. However, it sucks to have ANOTHER service to add and manage to your websites.

    It would be AWESOME if CloudWays began to build some of these features into the control panel. It makes the most sense to have them in one place.

    CloudWays, have you considered building any features like this?

  5. Breeze improvements - It''s a great plugin but...

    Integrating Breeze Plugin with CloudFlare to allow per site CloudFlare purging.

    Integrated Redis Cache options without needing a seperate WP plugin

    Allow automated Purge of all Cache's on Page or Post update for Redis, Varnish, Cloudways CDN and CloudFlare

    An up to date help file documenting exactly how to setup Breeze for Wordpress, with typical page rules and syntax examples for each section. The current Help files refer back to W3TC which is only helpful for users not using the Cloudways in house Cache Breeze.

  8. Breeze WordPress cache preload

    Cache preload based on sitemap.

    Set sitemap URL on plugin (see example on Comet Cache settings - I can release an install example for you to see).

    In Comet Cache you can set your sitemap URL, so the cache plugin can preload the cache, to make the site as fast as possible. If you're using Yoast SEO or another sitemap generator, you set the preload based on sitemap.

    Important for performance, on Comet Cache you can setup the interval of iteration between each URL reach on the sitemap, so you don't overload the server when preloading the cache.

    Hope I'd…

  10. Cloudways migration plugin deleted empty (but important) folders.

    I migrated a website using the Cloudways Migration plugin, which has a number of important folders that had to be in the directory, although they were empty. When I completed the migration, the server immediately crashed due to the error log file being flooded with an error. It seems that those folders were deleted during the migration. I think that the Cloudways Migration plugin deleted them because they were empty folders. However, they were important, and a function that was looking for those directories could not find them, and triggered an error file that kept growing and growing.

  11. Improve Staging Deployment for Wordpress Sites with better Find/Replace

    I have found a problem with the Staging deployment for my wordpress sites.
    Some plugins and themes store serialised arrays in the wordpress options. This is a valid technique that results in less DB calls.
    However, if you simply do a find and replace on URLs in the database, the serialisation of the array will break. This means that the Staging site will lose the settings in the plug-ins and themes.
    If you don't realise this, and push the changes back to Live, the Live website will break.

    A related problem is with premium plugins and themes that are licensed…

  12. Managed WordPress Multisite Backup

    It would be great to have an option to back up a multi-site wordpress network and then be able to restore only one subsite of that backup.

    Example: I have a multisite network with 100 customer sites. I backup my network daily. If a client in my network asked me to restore a backup I would only restore that client's site and not the entire network.

    I know that Cloudways works in partnership with BlogVault.
    BlogVault already has a WordPress Multisite compatible backup system.
    You could integrate this solution into the Cloudways administration panel.

  14. Breeze needs to purge CDN

    I agree with previous posts ... Breeze must purge everything, including a CDN. This functionality should not only purge the Cloudways CDN, but also any CDN that is compatible with Breeze.

    This is a MUST for a speed development workflow.

  15. WordPress as a Service - WaaS

    It would be great if there was a WaaS WP environment where I could Launch a server with My main WordPress membership site where I sell preconfigured WordPress installations that already have Theme/Plugin setups.
    The idea would be to automate the deployment of a WordPress install that I have already setup, and assign it a subdomain and SSL once a customer has made a purchase
    The automated process would go something like this:
    1) My customer would place an order for a preconfigured WP Install.
    2) Upon successful check out, have an automation triggered that does the following

  17. Continue to support cache plugin!!

    Hi! Your cache plugin is AMAZING! Please, please continue to support it. I tried another plugin (WP Rocket): for my site is far better than that one. I would buy it for sure, if you would decide sell it. Just please continue to develop it, please!
    Just a big THANK YOU for all the creators behind that fantastic plugin!

  19. Create a Support Access plugin to provide access token for support agents

    Create a plugin that allows a client (us) to generate an access token to provide to a support agent (you) to provide access for troubleshooting support seamlessly. This would avoid me having to create an unnecessary admin account on an install.

    I've had this functionality from companies as small as theme developers. It makes for a much better customer experience.

  20. Default wordpress config

    Please consider modifying the default wordpress wp-config file to include. I have had to manually add that to every install so that visitor IP's are showing up correctly.

    if ( isset( $SERVER[ "HTTPXFORWARDEDFOR" ] ) ) {
    $SERVER[ 'REMOTEADDR' ] = $SERVER[ "HTTPXFORWARDEDFOR" ];
    }
