Pods Alternative Cache

Pods Alternative Cache is a file-based or database-based caching solution for hosts that have limitations on object caching.

2.0.1 - July 13th, 2016

  • Fixed cache file/folder deleting bug that wouldn't let Pods clear / preload caches properly
  • Typo fix (props @szepeviktor)

2.0 - June 23rd, 2016

  • Added support for a Memcache caching (props @shaer)
  • Added support for WP_Filesystem usage instead of using PHP directly
  • Added additional WPEngine compatibility
  • Refactored into a better OO pattern so the code is easier to use and extend
  • Added ability to create custom storage types through the pods_alternative_cache_storage_types filter, return $storage_types; where you've set $storage_types[ 'your_type' ] = 'Your_Class';
  • File storage now uses md5-based folder structure to avoid issues on sites with a large amount of cached objects to avoid having folders with too many files in them which could cause issues with certain hosts
  • Found a bug? Have a great feature idea? Get on GitHub and tell us about it and we'll get right on it: github.com/pods-framework/pods-alternative-cache/issues/new
