This panel allows you to control how your site stores (or "caches") some specific page data.
Cache & Speed Settings
Your concrete5 site cache can save copies of page elements for quick access. If a certain block requires a lot of database interaction when it loads, cacheing might speed this process up. Each block cam specify whether or not it can be cached.
The Basic Cache allows blocks to be cached based on their default settings. This setting is enabled when you first install concrete5. If you're building a site, or troubleshooting a problematic page, it's advisable to keep the Block Cache turned off.
This option lets concrete5 save paths to any overidden components, like custom blocks, libraries, single pages, etc that may be deployed on your site. This means concrete5 won't have to check for these files again the next time it needs to load one. In general it's best to leave this setting "On" for live sites, but "Off" if you're actively developing or troubleshooting a site.
Full Page Caching
When Full Page caching is turned on, concrete5 will create a full static copy of each page to speed up site load times for visitors. If individual blocks specify that they're not to be cached, they will be ignored. Choose "On - in all cases" to force caching of all blocks regardless of what their settings specify.
Expire Pages from Cache
If your full-page cache site is showing outdated information or experiencing problems, the full page cache can be rebuilt. Options are included to automaticall rebuild the cached pages at the default setting, once at every interval you define, or manually via the Dashboard's Clear Cache page.
