  • 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).
  • 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.

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).

Amazing speedup

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 !!
