JotCache ComponentPluginExtension Specific Addon

JotCache is advanced solution for page caching in Joomla 1.5, 2.5 and 3.x framework. JotCache consists from JotCache Plugin, JotCache Component and JotCache recache plugins.

New combination of system plugin and management component covers tailored processing in JotCache for all types of extensions : static nad dynamic modules as well as components with static content and dynamic forms. Extended marking of cached content allows fast checking of cache operation in frontend and backend (new feature for easy selecting of cached pages which needs cache reset).

JotCache Plugin is extended replacement of standart System-Cache plugin with following enhancements :

Features of ver.4.0

* Cache management with faster opening on larger web sites – the cached files are presented with cached page titles and links, added more informations about cached page (browser type, language, non-routed query string), implemented items ordering, changed information about date/time of caching (incl. indication of expired or no more existing cache files)
* Exclusion of selected pages and module template positions from page caching
* Bots/crawlers and cookies exclusion
* Selective use of browser cache for choosen page URI's
* Powerfull autoclean (garbage collection) activity
* Possibility to set different page caches based on visitor browser type and device(phone,tablet).
* Cached page content can be compressed before saving into the cache. JotCache plugin has option to compress (gzlib) cached pages before storing to the cache, therefore the web access to cached content is accelerated. Compressing function covers static (page) as well as dynamic module content.
* Possibility to clear the cache only for selected pages.
* Batch recaching of frontend pages based on :
- information stored in database from previous page caching activity
- site crawling started with site homepage to other linked pages up to given depth level
Batch recaching can be also processed as cron job with selected setting possibilities
* Manual recache of marked files by users with JotCache recache rights. In this working mode authorized user can start the recache of viewed page on frontend pages and see immediatelly the results.

Thank you for your excellent work on this component. This is something that should be included in the JoomlaCore, as there are many components that caching breaks, but where you still need caching for the rest of the site.

I have a fairly complex site that where I need caching, but when I turn on caching it "breaks" the store component. This is a life saver.

Thank You!! Thank You!! Thank You!!

This plugin (and component to manage operations) is very efficient to cache complete page. This help to deliver very fast response and save server loads.
And it is open source.
Very good to speed up Joomla. We use it with JCH optimize.
Just one tip : You have to manage carrefully plugin sort (jot cache in last position and jch just behind).

Yes - you would expect speedup from a caching mechanism - but jotcache is really overwhelming - I'm not sure how we survived without it before. One of the best free plugins I can recommend (and would be worth it if he decided to charge!)

a must-have extension ! It replaces superbly the native Joomla cache system. Measuring my website before and after installation of this extension, I got to halve the homepage loading time !! More: I made a mistake at setup, and they intervened within hours to solve the problem.

I can not speaking highly enough about this plugin and the guys who have put it together. Simple enough of a solution? you bet... however it is the reason my joomla sites finally run as fast and load as fast as they should be. I recommend this highly to anyone who is running Joomla sites.

I'm amazed at how remarkably well this gem works, and even more amazed that it is free.

I stumbled across JotCache entirely by accident, long after trying every imaginable performance enhancement extension you can think of, including those prepackaged with my favorite commercial templates. Some of them are so complicated, in fact, configuring them for deployment is like picking a lock. And not only was I never able to get any of them to show any noticeable improvement in browsing performance, they'd often scramble my page rendering or crash the site altogether.

JotCache is remarkably simple to deploy, and the results are outstanding. Every site I've installed it on feels like a completely different site. Granted I've only been using it for just under 48 hours, I haven't found a single thing not to like about it.

My thanks to Jot Components for generously making this gem available to the community.

I have some very complex pages on a data intensive website, with many large database calls and large javascript applications. I have spent time optimizing with the usual CDNs, spritesheets, compressing JS and CSS etc.. but as soon as I installed this plugin the performance dramatically improved.

I haven't fully tested it yet but first run through everything works still and it was very easy to install.

JotCache is a MUST HAVE extension for joomla as it will solve many common cache problems, but will also upgrade your site cache abilities and speed to a much higher level...

Thanks for a great extension!

I wanted to use joomla's default systemcache plugin because it can really speedup page loading. (not the global systemcache, but the plugin, big difference).

However there was always a page or a component that had problems, so I could never enable the cache.

With jotcache, I now have full control! It's easy to exclude compontents / pages and even module positions.
Split browser support is awesome. And the extra page compression also works nice. I want to thank V.Kanich for this excellent piece of work! This should be part of the default joomla software if you ask me.

I thought I had tried everything to try and speed up and cache areas of a big busy site.
Other cache extensions and the joomla cache tool, just seemed to brake my site & I was really at the end of the tunnel, I even hired a "Speed expert" of a freelancer website and even they couldn't speed my site up.
I seemed to stumble upon JotCache and literally within minutes of installing it my site was 50% faster.
Its a large site with lots of areas that could really benefit from being cached.
I found it fairly easy to set up and quickly found that the parameters to exclude certain URL's and areas of the site is what makes JotCache so special for me.

It has been installed on a very big, busy site for around 6 months now & I have no issues with it.
New versions, upgrades and bug fixes seem to come out pretty frequently & I recently needed some support.
The support via the forum was quick and informative.
Vlado even took ownership of my problem and tested some stuff in my own website and offered a solution to my problem.

I make many Joomla sites and there are certain Components I see as core to me and I install them in all my sites (JCE, Akeeba are obvious ones), but JotCache is on my list now too!

Thanks for your time in building this great component & offering the support that you do.
Well Done & keep up the good work
