Wildcard Cache Exclusion #1392

Expected behaviour

This was brought up to the devs way back in August/September 2016 on Statamic 2, and a fix was provided, but never implemented in the core, so we have to hack AbstractCacher.php every time we update Statamic, even now in Statamic 2.5.8.

Basically, the syntax for static_caching_exclude does not allow for wildcard urls, so we can't avoid caching paginated sections of our blog (like taxonomy indexes).

This should work:

  • /blog
  • '/blog/category/*'
  • '/blog/tags/*'`

...but it doesn't. It actually breaks all caching exclusions.

The core hack that fixes it

The hack we were provided is thus, basically commenting out a chunk seemingly important stuff:

AbstractCacher.php (line 93-104)

protected function getUrl(Request $request)
        $url = $request->path();

        // if (! Config::get('static_caching_ignore_query_strings')) {
        //     if ($query = http_build_query($request->query->all())) {
        //         $url .= '?' . $query;
        //     }
        // }

        return Str::ensureLeft($url, '/');

Can we get wildcard cache exclusions supported officially?
