[Plugin: WP Super Cache] why two caching methods? (4 posts)

    I don't understand why the plugin uses two caching methods. If the supercache method is superior then why is the old caching method needed?

    The PHP caching is used where a user is logged in or has left a comment.

    What's the advantage of that?

    They get more dynamic/fresher content, but it still is faster and less of a server hit than generating the page from scratch. It is a compromise, a midway between the static cached pages and real-time generation.
