If you dabble in PHP you can write your own caching system into your web pages. It just takes a few lines of code at the beginning and end of your pages.

If anyone has any interest I will be happy to post the code.

Colbyt, do you think you could incorporate into something like a Wordpress theme instead of using a plugin?

I doubt that I could. I gave up on WP a long time ago. In their effort to be all things to all people it is just way to convoluted and bulky for my tastes.

If you can identify the pages that create the pages you want to cache the process is something like this;
pseudo code:
Check the cache directory if file exists && it is within life parameters
If yes and yes serve the cached page and skip the page execution
If no start the output buffer, produce the page, and write the results to the cache directory and the browser.
Close the output buffer

About 10 lines of code at the top of the page and 10 at the bottom. I have not tested it with PHP7 but I don't recognize any problems looking at the code.
