New major version of JotCache was developed with the aim to make easier handling with cache and cached content. New features are not limited only to recache functions but these ones are significant step forward in JotCache functionality.
JotCache has now functions to recache pages either manual in Joomla backed and frontend or by means of batch processing started from dedicated page in site backend. These features are usually used by site administrators but they can be also available for users with rights of Manager (here is necessary to set before usage the user permissions as it is written in JotCache Help).
Batch processing is performed with jotcache plugins. Three of such plugins are included in JotCache 4 installation file :
• Crawler Extended
The crawlers allows to fill the site cache with new cached pages as well as to recache not yet expired pages with new content (if it is available).
The recache plugin restores latest page content for all pages which are still available in JotCache database (they can be also in meantime expired).
With recache plugin is also possible to recache only selected part of cached pages based on selection, filtering or title search.
It is necessary to take into account that browser initiated and controlled recache process can take long time and different limitations and timeouts from PHP and servers can be applied. From this reason browser initiated recache process is suitable for relativelly small number of site pages (max. in range of hundreds pages).
