  • Hi, I dont want to cache my frontpage because it should show random posts each time.

    I clicked under Accepted Filenames & Rejected URIs the button Frontpage and added “index” under the Add here strings (not a filename) that forces a page not to be cached.

    But still it caches the frontpage.

    My domain automatically redirects from to with the following code in htaccess:

    RedirectMatch ^/$ /index.php [L]

    and one line code change in canonical.php

    if ( $compare_original !== $compare_redirect ) { $redirect_url = $redirect[‘scheme’] . ‘://’ . $redirect[‘host’] . ‘/index.php’; “

    and shows the random posts by (I thought, has been a while) this code:

    if (is_home()) {

    How do I disable caching the frontpage?

  • I have the same issue, but it is still serving a random page or post as the homepage instead of the main page.

    I currently have it set to only cache posts, but it appears to be caching everything… index and pages as well.

    I am currently using the development version as DLed yesterday.

    Define the constant DONOTCACHEPAGE in whatever code you have that serves that front page. That will stop the page in question being cached.

    Thanks donncha,

    I actually just got finished doing that.

    On a similar note, what would cause the plugin to show the wrong cached page on the homepage? I would like to have it cached eventually and would like to remedy the problem instead of just avoiding it.

    Tom – are you seeing the wrong cached page? I very very occasionally see a problem which is why I added the “extra homepage checks”.

    Yes, I see the wrong cached homepage every once in awhile, not all the time though. It does not occur on any other page or post. It happens even when I have the main page checked off as not to be cached in the settings.

    I do have “extra home page checks” clicked.

    Tom – have you seen the incorrect page while logged in or logged out? Did you have the homepage checks active when the problem arose?

    I was logged out when I saw them, never when logged in. I have been checking in another browser that is not logged-in to the site.

    Yes, I have had homepage checks active since I installed the plugin and just saw the wrong page as the main page again this morning. I usually just delete the cached page via FTP Commander.

    Thanks for all of the help, I really appreciate it.

    OK, Backie found the problem and reported it in another thread. Can you download and place it in your wp-super-cache/ directory? It will overwrite a file of the same name.

    The homepage checks should work now.

    Just did it. I’ll turn on homepage caching and see how it acts.
