Configure WP Super Cache to Forward Url Parameters to Existing Cached Page

  • I am using WP Super Cache in mod_rewrite mode. I see there is an option to either ignore Get Parameter (ex. ?parm=test) or have them cached as their own page.

    I have a bunch of pages that use GET parameters for JavaScript purposes. Things from Google Analytics Tracking Parameters to Google Content Experiment Parameters to Parameters which are used to show a different Phone Number based on the value. They are all Javascript based so they should not be part of the original caching of the page.

    Is there a way to pass the parameter to an existing cached file?

    For example:
    There is a cached page for myhomepage.com.
    Someone goes to myhomepage.com/?name=bob
    It loads the originally cached page for myhomepage.com and includes the ?name=bob to the page when it loads?
    So the page still loads the original cached file but the parameters can be used to display the page and forwarded to 3rd party systems that are JS based.

    I am not totally sure but I believe there might be a way to do this with mod_rewrite in the .htaccess file but I am not sure if there are any plug-in specifics that need to be set or configured. Or which part of the htaccess mod_rewrite code that wp super cache provides needs to be reworked.

    This will help decrease the number of cached pages on the server and help with the handling of GET Parameters in WP Super Cache.

    Thanks
    Greg
