Introduction

Cache, Core Enhancements, Performance

CacheControl is an easy to use plugin where you can define on what pages and components caching should be turned off. This can help if you are using extensions that have trouble with the Joomla! cache.

  • Favourite
  • Report

The definitions are straight forward and simple. You just setup the url parameters for each rule and if they match, caching will be turned off for anything that is called with these parameters.

Quick Guide:

Example rules for com_content (each line is a separate rule that will fire upon match):

option=com_content

option=com_content&id=214

option=com_content&id=?

The first rule will prevent caching for the whole com_content extension, while the 2nd rule will prevent caching for a specific article. The 3rd rule will prevent caching for all article details (because of the ?).

Keep in mind that the above rules need to be written in parameter form, even if there is SEF enabled. This means you will need to know the parameters an extension accepts!

Functionality

When calling modules in your articles, this plugin is a must.

100
Ease of use

Just read the rules description and that's it.
add "option=com_content&view=article&id=xxx" lines and your articles wont 'be cached anymore.

I used this to: Being a Joomla modules/extensions developer, it's a relief to have this plugin.

I use it on most of my websites.

Functionality

Works like is should.

83
Ease of use

Easy to use once you know how to use it.

20
Documentation

Hardly any documentation. I learned that your global caching should be on, page caching off, Cache Control plugin enabled.

I used this to: I need caching especially for pages that pull in rss feeds. So I mine as well cache the whole site. However, I needed to prevent caching on a few pages that use pagination. Thanks for the plugin! I spent weeks working on a solution- tried JotCache but it does weird url appending.
100
Functionality

I wanted to turn off the cache for just one article (yes with a form!) It is not possible to accomplish this in Joomla.

100
Ease of use

Had it up and running in a few minutes and used the example given and changed the article id

100
Documentation

The instructions are at the top of this page in the description. Didn't check the website

I used this to: Turing off the cache for an article
100
Functionality

CacheControl did everything I needed it to do.

100
Ease of use

It was easy to set up and using the default script and adding the ID of the file/module I need to to controlworked perfectly.

100
Documentation

Very simple to use so the documentation manual is not very big.

I used this to: CacheControl is a must to manage the cache on certain files and modules. I use this to manage the cache of forms create by Web-Dorado's FormMaker. With this plugin everything works perfectly.

Support

Support not necessary

Brilliant and very useful extension.



Very easy to install and use too - as Chris Maes says below, just enable it and add :

event=submit

and it fixes a long-term Chronoforms problem I was having.

Hope to use it to fix some other problems I was having with the cache.



Thanks a lot Crosstec guys.

For some reason my site was recently having issues with its forms (BreezingForms) and the problem was localized to when the internal Joomla cache was on or off. Luckily for me, I found CacheControl and was able to setup a rule to prevent Joomla from caching any BreezingForms-related content. Worked like a charm! Thank you.
