Configuration

How do I use the exclusions in the Plugin Parameters?

This is easy - just type in the non-SEF version of your URL. The non-SEF version is easy to spot as it always starts with index.php?option. You can type in multiple URLs, just make sure you add them each on a new line.

How do exclusions work ?

The Plugin will match the URL you type in the exclusions list with the current URL. If the same parameters are found then caching is disabled. This way you can turn off caching for a component, a section of a component or a specific part of the component.
For example, if you want to turn off caching for all of the articles section of Joomla! just add:

index.php?option=com_content

If you want to turn off caching just for articles, add:

index.php?option=com_content&view=article

There are lots of possibilities. You can turn off caching for the first article like this:

index.php?option=com_content&view=article&cid=1:my-first-article

How do I turn off caching for a menu item ?

Nothing easier. Let's say you want to turn off caching for the Menu Item ID 15.

index.php?Itemid=15

How do I turn off caching for an entire component ?

You can turn it off by specifying the component's link. For example, let's say you want to turn off caching for kunena:

index.php?option=com_kunena
