Version 2.5 of the Staticize Reloaded plugin is now available for download. Installation instructions are included in the archive. What does Staticize Reloaded do? It is a highly advanced caching engine that dynamically and automatically caches pages on your site that need to be cached, when they need to be cached. It also allows for some parts of a page to be cached and others not to be, so for example your menu could always be dynamically included from a single file while your main blog content was cached. With Staticize Reloaded you don’t have to worry about rebuilding, stale caches, slow posting times, or any of that. It works silently, efficiently, and trasparently to both the end user and the author.
This version adds the ability to have dynamic functions on a page in addition to dynamic includes. It also adds full support for etags and last modified headers, though you must turn it on in the plugin file. My one tip is that when you redesign or tweak your template temporarily deactivate the plugin. Staticize Reloaded is well-suited for sites on older servers or that receive more than twenty thousand visitors per day. WordPress is so fast anyway I find it’s not worth caching on lower-traffic sites.
