    batcache seems to cache pages after bad behavior checks the user? any way to resolve this issue in situations where it’s a bad check and everyone will be able to see my page? would bad behavior work on any of the cache plugins?

  • I can’t speak to Batcache specifically (you might check in with its author, the amazing Mr Andy Skelton) but I can tell you that WP Super Cache supports Bad Behavior quite well (it automatically detects its presence when both are active, you just need to activate their cooperation in the WP Super Cache options page).

    Drawback is that you won’t be able to use the extra oomph you normally get from Gzip compression – but that’s actually not a “drawback” but a logical and necessary trade-off between performance (WP Super Cache, or any other good cache plugin) and security (Bad Behavior).

    Bottom line: if you’re both strapped for resources and you have a lot of really nasty critters crawling over your site, there’s simply no way around upgrading your hosting package. That balance between performance and security is not a ‘flaw’ – it’s just what it is.

    Note: Batcache appears to be a relatively high-end solution for multiple-server setups, plus you have to ensure Memcache is supported. In other words, it’s not in the “simple plug and play” caching plugin category, which you probably already know – it’s just a cautionary remark for unsuspecting other users.

    Sidenote: please read this before posting plugin support issues in the WordPress Installation forum again…

    Bad Behavior worked fine with Batcache when I tested the combination a couple of weeks ago.
