MicroCache Compatible Sessions

Microcaching is a caching tactic whereby content is cached for a short periods of time. This effectively means that updates to the site are delayed by no more than a second, making the site dynamic but still gaining the benefits of caching.

Examples of dynamic content suitable for caching include:

  • Site homepages, where new articles are posted periodically
  • RSS Feeds
  • Status pages
  • An inventory, status, or fundraising counter
  • Calendar data
  • Personalized dynamic content generated on the client browser that is personalized using cookie data

The benefits of caching are improved web performance, and reduced load on the server. The effectiveness of caching depends on the cacheability of the content. Caching personalized content is generally not possible, because it will cause personalized content to be delivered to the wrong person. What can still benefit from caching is dynamic content that is not personalized on the server for each user, or is personalized using JavaScript.

Some MicroCaches determine what is cacheable by detecting session and login cookies. This option disables session cookies for non-logged in visitors when turned on.

Nestable Shortcodes

When working with conditional shortcodes it’s often useful to have a series of tests, one after another, where each test determines if the user is qualified to continue to the next test.

Due to a limitation in WordPress’s design, the built-in shortcode system is very fast but it does not know how to count levels of nesting, so it cannot match each opening tag with its correct closing tag. In order to cleanly support this feature while not sacrificing performance, we provide the ability to nest shortcodes by giving each nested group of shortcodes a unique name by adding a number to the end. You can think of this like a Russian Matryoshka doll.
