I'm currently using Quick Cache plugin. I installed this plugin as it was much simpler to install as compared to supercache plugin or W3 Total cache.
The problem is that an anonymous user sees the cached version of the website and that's why he is unable to see a post which has been posted say an hour ago.Is there any way to rectify this issue ?
Secondly, anyone who has used the Quick Cache Plugin and has anything to say on whether this is good or not ?
Also I have always wondered how do I measure the performance of a cache plugin ? If you read the reviews of say W3 Total cache, a lot of people will say that they found it useful and there will be a lot of others who say that they didn't see any increase in the loading speed of their websites .Similarly you will see the same thing for wp super cache
it really doesnt matter what caching plugin you use, you will need to tell it to ignore the forum page... you cannot cache the wp page the forum appears on it... Its because all the forum content appears on this single wp page... there are not multiple pages but one page that is dynamically generated and has appearance of multiple urls/pages because of url rewrite black magic... so any wp plugin for caching will see the forum as a single page... caching that single page will remove the dynamic content generation and cause nothing but problems for you... simple press does a bunch of internal caching itself...
I am still facing the caching problem not in the forums but in the "Community Forums" block in the link below on the homepage, it doesn't display to the anonymous user the post just posted in the forums. For logged on users, it shows the post
There is not anything we can do about that. It is the nature of the cache plugin.
Some cache plugins claim that you can set certain sections of a page NOT to be cached and it will run those sections dynamically. If yours supports such functionality you might be able to wrap that section in whatever tags the plugin uses. But to my mind it rather undermines the point of a cache plugin to do so.
