[Plugin: WP Super Cache] Cache rebuild and what does it do (2 posts)

    Hello,

    I have a question regarding the "Cache rebuild" setting. It says "Serve a supercache file to anonymous users while a new file is being generated. Recommended for very busy websites with lots of comments. Makes "directly cached pages" and "Lockdown mode" obsolete."

    So let's see if I understand correctly. With this OFF, a dynamic (not cached) page will be served, until a new file is generated. With this ON, an old cached file will be served, until a new one is generated. Is this correct?

    If so, what would you suggest for a small blog that barely gets few hundred visits a day? Would setting this on still make my blog use less server resources?

    Asking just out of curiosity... I wondered if the setting was only meant for "very busy" sites and not worth it in other cases.

    Thanks!

    You probably don't need to use it but it won't harm your blog if you activate it.
