WP Widget Cache
feature request: support for qTranslate (4 posts)

    Although this plugin works fine, I'm afraid it fails when running alongside qTranslate.

    The cashed widgets versions are served but they might be in a different language than the one the visitor has selected.

    I can imagine it might be too complicated or too much work (core recoding?) to make Widget Cache take either the language or URL (where a language string will be used) into account when storing and serving from cache, but it would really be great addition to the project...

    In any case, thanks for a great plugin :)

    I just installed the plugin myself and I managed to enable qTranslate support with this: edit "widget-cache.php" in "/wp-content/plugins/wp-widget-cache".
    Find function "widget_cache_redirected_callback" and line starting with "while($this->wcache->save(". Add "$q_config['language']." after "save(" and before "$this->get_widget_cache_key". Above this line write "global $q_config;".

    qTranslate is really slow and this plugin helps a lot. Now all we need is a nav-menu caching functionality.

    Hey, that's great! Thanks for sharing!

    I hope the plugin developer will pick up on it :)

    qTranslate can indeed use a little help speeding things up...

    Yeap, qTranslate is reeealy slow if your blog grows big.
    Few speedup tips on my blog.
    Also watch out for PHP 5.4. It will be significantly faster (around 25%).

    I'm trying to extend this plugin so it would cache navigation menus too. Maybe I'll succeed.

    What can also be done (but I have no time to implement it):
    - cache excerpts (on post change, comment change, cat change, etc.),
    - cache posts (same triggers as in excerpts),
    - regenerate cache file after the old contents has been served to user (I saw a reference to this in wp-super-cache).
    In this way WordPress would be super fast.
