Cache Buddy


Minimizes the situations in which logged-in users appear logged-in to WordPress, which increases the cacheability of your site.



Manual Installation

  1. Upload the entire /cache-buddy directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate Cache Buddy through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.


Will this work for BuddyPress sites?

No. Nor any other site that needs people to be logged in on the front of the site for anything other than comment form customizations.


Doesn't Work With Customized Comments Template

Unfortunately the plugin doesn’t work if certain simple customizations have been made to the comments template. I opened a support thread two weeks ago but got no response from the author:

In my case, the customizations were made before the plugin was installed, so I can’t comment on how the plugin works without these customizations.

Since one of the main purposes of Cache Buddy is to affect the behaviour of cookies for commenters, I would expect the plugin to work despite a bit of custom code in the comments template.
