ari Posted March 11, 2005 Share Posted March 11, 2005 The data cached is the stripped definitions for the categories, products, and manufacturers. I am guessing it is not caching the product description, only the name - is this correct? Finally 24h ago I deployed the contribution to my production server and except for little annoyances it seems to be working well. If someone cares to check - Exit15.com. It took me some time to test because I had a few issues to deal with that needed tweaking. I will share them here for the sake of the feedback and helping others: First, was the need to make it work with the manufacturer (mName). That's only partially working - the pull down menu is still calling up manufacturers by ID, but SE don't follow forms so I don't really care. Secondly, I needed to make sure it works with my Article Manager contribution. Thanks to a fellow named Matti and a little tweaking, it is now working. Third, was the effort to make it work with a mod I put in a while ago to prevent Robots from adding items to the cart (they did it even without getting a session id). This item works well in most templates (we must not mess with add to cart) except for one minor annoyance - the "alt text" on the buy button in the ?advanced_search_results.php? refuses to get the actual text displayed and Instead I have the ?TEXT_BUYTEXT_NOW?. I tried everything to fix it, but it needs a fresh eye. Fourth, I had a redirection problem - if I turn the contribution OFF through the admin, application_top.php attempts to redirect the regular URL to itself resulting in an endless loop. I went live with this problem hoping not to have to turn the SEO URLs off (if I do, I can simply comment out the line requiring the redirect file in application top) Last, is the caching issue ? I am missing something or there is a small bug in the contribution. The fist request to the site after re-setting the cache, comes back with an error. Consequent requests are ok, so I figured I will simply make the first request myself if, for whatever reason, I need to reset the cache.
