built-in Disk Caching system
I understand that developers have held off on building in a caching system because of everybody having different server configurations. And therefore they've referred people to plugins.
But what about a built-in disk caching system? That requires no knowledge of the server config, right?
Just a folder to store the cached pages in, maybe call it wp-cache.
And then a settings box for the length of time to cache them.
Seems simple in concept. I'm hoping this can be done at some point in a new release! :)
Nice idea and this could work caching is overlooked in wordpress and a built in method would speed up the site
For people running on VPS, Cloud, Dedicated, there are tons of drop in cache plugins. Some are older but can be fixed pretty easy. There are 4 listed at this link for xcache, eAcellerator, memcache, and APC. http://neosmart.net/WP/XCache/
If you want to write your own mini cache for WordPress, just use something like this, https://github.com/gilbitron/PHP-SimpleCache and write your own cache.
The Simple Cache link above shows an example for caching twitter feeds.
