Description

Adds ability to easily cache widget output for better performance. This plugin does not cache widgets automatically! You must define which widgets get cached.

Installation

As standard plugin:

See Installing Plugins.

As theme or plugin dependency:

After dropping the plugin into the containing theme or plugin, add the following:

if( ! class_exists( 'Voce_Widget_Cache' ) ) {
	require_once( $path_to_voce_widget_cache . '/voce-widget-cache.php' );
}

Usage

Example

Add a widget to the cache and designate which actions the cache gets flushed on.

$widget_cache = Voce_Widget_Cache::GetInstance();
$widget_cache->cache_widget( 'Archive_Links_Widget', array( 'save_post' ) );
$widget_cache->cache_widget( 'WP_Widget_Recent_Posts' );
