This plugin hasn’t been updated in over 2 years. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



WP-URLCache allows you to use a shortcode to locally cache outgoing links in your posts and pages.


How do I use it?

Simply use the [urlcache url target alt cachetext] shortcode in your posts where:
* URL is the URL you want to cache
* Target is the link target value
* Alt is the link alternate value
* CacheText is the text you want to display in lieu of the cached link

Any technical requirements?
  • You will need PHP5. PHP4 has been officially discontinued since August 8 2008. If this plugin gives you PHP errors (T_STATIC, T_OLD_FUNCTION), you should strongly consider upgrading your PHP installation.
  • You will need cURL
  • You will also need at least WordPress 2.7 since WP-URLCache is using WordPress’ Settings API.
