wao.io Cache Control

Description

wao.io Cache Control is a free plugin to clear your WordPress site’s cache at wao.io.

Cache Control

Use this plugin to control your site’s cache at wao.io.

Click on the Invalidate Origin Content button to clear your optimized WordPress website’s cache at wao.io
to make sure that you and your customers will see the latest version of your content.

Cache invalidation will automatically be triggered after publishing or updating a post or a page, and after switching a theme.

Cache invalidation treats all content in the cache as if it was outdated.
This means that wao.io will check on the next request if the content changed on the origin server.
If so, it will be requested. Otherwise wao.io will continue to use the cached resource.
This is especially useful if you changed only a few images and the majority of content remained unmodified.

Settings

In the wao.io Cache Control Settings section of your general WordPress settings,
please enter your Site ID, and the API key that you obtained from wao.io’s support team.

If you do not have an API key yet, please contact wao.io support.

In future versions of this plugin, you can disable or enable automatic cache invalidation here.

Automatic Cache Invalidation

Automatic cache invalidation will make WordPress try to invalidate your
optimized WordPress website’s cache at wao.io automatically each time your content has changed,
e.g. after publishing a page or uploading an image.

Known Issues

Some WordPress sites reported a bug that the publish / update post event did not fire when using the block editor (Gutenberg issue #17632).
This may affect the plugin wao.io Cache Control which depends on the event for automatic cache invalidation.

Reviews

August 9, 2020
This plugin comes in handy if your WordPress site is optimized by wao.io and you update your site content frequently. The automatic trigger invalidates your site cache automatically after posting, editing or uploading new images, to make sure the updated content is visible immediately while still enjoying the benefit or an additional cache and image optimizer. To be sure, you can use the manual cache invalidation buttons, so you're always in total control of your content.
