*** Caching Plugin?

edited July 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
In Vanilla 2 - Does anyone know of a caching plugin for Vanilla?

Since Vanilla 2 is using Smarty now, I wonder if Smarty's built in caching mechanism can be used.

    Smarty caching is used if the theme you choose uses the smarty version.

    We also have a bunch of built-in caching methods that get picked up "magically" as you work with the app. We also use the open source Minify project (as a plugin) to help you speed up js and css includes.

    For those who have true heavy-load communities, we've got memcached implementations on the way in one of the minor version releases coming in the near future.

    Is the theme on this page available for download and also use Smarty?

    I ask because I really like the theme on this post and would really like to use it with caching.
  • MarkMark Vanilla Staff
    I haven't released it yet - we just finished it today. But we fully intend on releasing it and all of the plugins used on this community forum.

    Also, is the theme using Smarty? So that I can enable caching?

    Question: so is the theme on this forum using Smarty? And if so, does that mean frontpage and thread Smarty caching can be enabled?

    Vanilla's default theme uses smarty now. By default we have smarty compiling enabled, but the caching is not. There's nothing stopping you from adding this though.

    How would I enable Smarty caching and updating the cache whenever someone creates/updates a new-post/existing-topic/etc
  • Any updates on how to enable Caching?
