W3 Total Cache isn't compatible with WPTouch. Is there a way to get the benefits of W3 Total Cache without using the plugin?

Did you already try adding all the mobile user agents to the "Rejected user agents" list in w3tc?

I use this list for this purpose (not created by me and certainly not complete but enough for my purpose):

iphone ipod ipad aspen incognito webmate android dream cupcake froyo blackberry9500 blackberry9520 blackberry9530 blackberry9550 blackberry9800 webos s8000 bada

That's a common workaround that almost anyone uses to have w3tc and WPTouch working together.

*Edit* You wild need to reformat the list to have one per line to insert it in w3tc.

  • What exactly does the rejected list do?

    It's just used to stop mobile devices to get the page content out of w3tc cache, because to serve the content from the page cache all clients/devices have to get the same content. You'll of course loose a part of the performance boost from w3tc for your mobile clients.
