[resolved] WP-Cache -- should I use it on other pages? (2 posts)

  1. Okay, first off, this isn't a thread asking if I should use WP-Cache or not. My site can get near 100k pageviews a day on certain days of the week, so I know it's best to be using it. ;)

    Anyway, I have it installed in the WordPress powered area of the site (the news). It's working great and I have a couple bits staying dynamic like they need to be.

    However, I also have a non-WordPress powered script that is basically a file lister. Here's some examples of it's output:

    http://www.finalgear.com/shows/
    http://www.finalgear.com/shows/topgear/ (lotta HTML)
    http://www.finalgear.com/shows/topgear/8/6/

    I'm pretty sure each one of those URLs is generated with only one query, but on that 2nd URL, it's obviously a fairly large query that gets returned.

    So here's my question:

    Would it be easier on my server to keep it how it is (non-cached, 1 query per page load) or to load up WordPress at the top of that page and then use WP-Cache to cache the page?

  2. Had a long discussion on IRC with io_error, so this is all resolved (I'll be loading up WP and using WP-Cache). :)
