Support » Plugin: Iframely - rich media embeds for 2000+ publishers » Embed Cache no longer working?

  • Ever since the start of the year (probably the last time I ran a WordPress update) My IFramely API hits have spiked pretty hard to the point where its just told us that we’ve lost API access till we pay more or wait till February.

    Its my understanding that WordPress is supposed to cache the embed responses for AT LEAST a day (maybe longer) so I’m not understanding why we are getting so many hits per url per day on article we wrote a long time ago.

    Anyone else seeing this?

    Hi, Ivan from Iframely here. Please send a screenshot of your Iframely plugin settings page to together with the email address on your account. We’ll take a look into what is going on and remove the block from your account if needed.

    For general information for anyone having similar question: the last update in September did take care of WordPress caching. By default, WP refreshes embeds only when you edit/save an article. We added an option to define time-to-live setting for automated cache refresh (= as caching should be). When you activate it, the plugin starts using other cache keys – essentially dropping the previous cache. Because of that, there may indeed be an initial spike in API hits as all older posts refresh.
