  • Get this

New combination of system plugin and management component covers tailored processing in JotCache for all types of extensions : static and 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.5

  • 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
  • Multisite operation
  • Use of memcached (server) as cache storage
  • Extended URL caching rules (include/exclude general mode, using logical AND in rule expressions)
  • Cache Operation Modes (previous Browser Split) with possibility for each browser category (incl. phones, tablets) to select own operation mode :
    • exclude from caching
    • use common cache (for different browser categories)
    • use individual cache
  • 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.


I wanted an improved cache....I got an improved cache. Not their fault my hosting service doesn't have memcache as standard.

Ease of use

Turned it worked. I did some worked better.


Not needed them. Documentation and forum has been enough so far.


As above. This and the forum has been enough.

I used this to: My own site but will be moving it onto client sites as soon as possible.

Works great!

Right out of the box it works! The basic settings are already set to go. This is MUCH better than the core Joomla system cache.

Ease of use

Download, install, activate the plugin = you're set. Nice to have autoclean! EasyCron is also great!


Good! All the inner workings are explained clearly along with a nice overview of the Joomla cache system. Might need better English.

I used this to: I use this for a relatively small personal website.

Thank you very much, your plugin save too much time for my site. Increase my site speed 3 times.

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!!

Owner's reply: Thanks very much to all reviewers for positive evaluation of JotCache extension. During last four years was this page caching solution for Joomla CMS steady expanded with new better features for site administrators. The development is driven with community feedback and result is given back as open source.

Great Product

Its a great product. I am using it with get success on a county-wide site.

However, all the links are dead, I have no way to download another or even read the documentation.

Owner's reply: All links (download, documentation) on JED to are working well

Very usefull

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).

Pimp my website

Best Joomla Cache extension i have found to date. I run a website that is in the top 80,000 websites on the internet and my god i installed this for it and speeds shot up i highly recommend this to anyone looking for a high traffic caching resolution.

Amazing speedup

Posted on 04 November 2013

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!)

Brilliant !!
