Released WP Greet Box 4.8

Non-cache-compatible WP Greet Box ModeWP Greet Box version 4.8 is here!

What’s new this release?

This version of WP Greet Box has a few minor enhancements.

  1. Added support for non-cache-compatible mode for people who do not use this plugin with any caching plugins. If you do not use any cache plugins, I recommend disabling cache compatibility so you do not get that load “bump” when jQuery dynamically loads the greeting banner above your post text.
  2. Added option to disable JS references for manual JS management.

Make Any Plugin Work with WP Super Cache

I notice that a lot of people visit my blog because they want to get WP-PostViews or Popularity Contest plugin to work with a WordPress cache plugin like WP Super Cache. In this post I will show you the general technique I use to make (almost) any plugin compatible with WP Super Cache.

Understanding WP Super Cache

As you all may know, WP Super Cache when fully enabled works by saving a copy of the generated HTML file and using .htaccess to redeliver that same static file upon repeated requests. The benefit of this is obviously the time saving from the absence of PHP execution and database queries. This “feature” also has the side effect of staticizing any parts of the page that needs to be dynamic, such as:

  1. Statistics tracking: This includes things like page view counting/displaying and visitor tracking. Some plugins that do this are WP Post Views and Popularity Contest.
  2. Dynamic visitor targeting: This includes things like showing different content depending on who your visitor is. Some plugins that do this are What Would Seth Godin Do and Who Sees Ads.
