Staticize Reloaded

Staticize Reloaded is a plugin to make your site faster by caching the output of some WordPress pages. It creates a unique key based on the page varia

Do I really need to use this plugin?

Probably not, WordPress is fast enough that caching usually only adds a few milliseconds of performance that isn't really perceptible by users. Some reasons you may want to use Staticize Reloaded:

  • If your site gets Slashdotted
  • If you're on a very slow server
  • If you've had a complaint from your host about performance

How can I tell if it's working?

Staticize Reloaded adds some stats to the very end of a page in the HTML, so you can view source to see the time it took to generate a page and rather it was cached or not. Remember that the cache is created on demand, so the first time you load a page it'll be generated from the database.

I see gibberish on the screen when I activate this plugin?

Make sure that you deactivated compression on the Miscellaneous options screen and that gzip encoding is turned off on the PHP level

How do I make certain parts of the page stay dynamic?

There are two ways to do this, you can have functions that say dynamic or include entire other files. To have a dynamic function in the cached PHP page use this syntax around the function:

<!--mfunc function_name('parameter', 'another_parameter') -->
<?php function_name('parameter', 'another_parameter') ?>

The HTML comments around the mirrored PHP allow it to be executed in the static page. To include another file try this:

<!--mclude file.php-->
<?php include_once(ABSPATH . 'file.php'); ?>

That will include file.php under the ABSPATH directory, which is the same as where your wp-config.php file is located.
