Is this plugin affiliated with Wordfence?

The authors of this plugin are not affiliated with Wordfence. The caching engines used by this plugin were ported from Wordfence’s code after they decided to remove them from their codebase.

Does this plugin replace Wordfence?

No, but it does replace a feature that they will be removing soon. Wordfence is one of the best security plugins available for WordPress and for about 2 years their product included a very awesome caching engine. In October of 2016 they decided that they would be removing this caching engine which is why this plugin was created.

Can I programmatically stop Vendi Cache from caching a specific page/post?

Yes, the caching engine may be stopped for a given request in several ways. The preferred way (as of 1.2.0) is via a filter: add_filter( \Vendi\Cache\api::FILTER_NAME_DO_NOT_CACHE, '__return_true' ). For legacy reasons we also still support a public static method \Vendi\Cache\api::do_not_cache(). Lastly, if you wish to globally stop the caching engine site-wide you can define the WFDONOTCACHE constant somewhere in your code.

For historical reasons, if defined the global constant is always honored first and cannot be undone via the filter. This might be changed in the future if someone actually has a need for it but generally speaking, constants are used to make global changes by administrators that local code should not be able to undo.


Easy Caching solution

This has got to be the easiest drop in cache solution available. Works as expected without pages and pages of options.


I was looking for a replacement of the Wordfence Falcon Engine.
Thank you so much, it works perfectly!

Excellent drop-in replacement

Vendi Cache is an excellent drop-in replacement for Wordfence caching. I was very happy to hear Vendi offered this as I have been using the Falcon cache and really wanted to just keep using what I had in the past. Thank you!


Thank you thank you thank you!

Falcon had really simplified my small business cache and since I am the webhost I was very satisfied with how it worked.

This is working perfectly for the site I transitioned from Wordfence Falcon to Vendi-Cache
