Speed up your site by following the rules! Set short time-spans for pages that change frequently, and longer time-spans for pages that don't.
Note: Expires Headers cannot alter the expires headers for content that was not processed through the Joomla framework. This includes CSS files, Images, Favicon files and others. These files can be addressed using htaccess rules. Visit the website link for more information and an example.

Second - extension works as expected! I didn't even have to enter an exclusion for my contact form.
Third - extension plays nicely with mod_expires and mod_pagespeed (but probably requires neither of those).
This is the only plugin of its kind and I thank you for it - and for answering emails from a non-customer on a Sunday!
The key to your problem is in the description:
"There are 97 static components"
Thanks for the review.
This plug-in for Joomla! 1.5 installed without error and once the plug-in was enabled within the manager it took immediate effect to the current date as an update from the default of “Mon, 1 Jan 2001 00:00:00 GMT” for every article on the web site.
Thank you for sharing this must have extension.
This plugin allows you to configure WHICH pages are cached and which are not - based on menu item. A global configuration can be made, and then altered or removed with individual configurations per page.
If caching occurs on a particular page, it's because the plugin was configured to cache that page.
Sorry about that. I tracked it down to an array key error that causes the plugin to halt. It is resolved in release 1.2 currently available for upgrade.
I would completly recommend this. Unlike joomla's 'use browser cache' option the cached content is availble outside a single browser session and reduces http headers sent because instead of sending a http header when you go from page to page so joomla can say to your browser the page has not changed your browser will see you have the page cached locally and until the content expires/becomes stale your browser will not need to send another http header for that page.
I dont understand what "advanced options" do. I select menu, click add/update, try select rule (no rule exist)and nothing. plugin works without advanced options in any menu. Some problem may occur when try login/logout - user need click reload button in browser.
Advanced parameters allow an administrator to make specific configurations per menu item. To use, make your settings, select your menu item and press the add/update button. The second select list allows the administrator to select a configuration to modify.
I'm glad it works for you. I've been anxious to get some feedback.
