Please exclude wpForo Forum page from your cache plugin!

Almost all cache plugins should have an option to exclude pages from caching process. You should exclude your forum home page from your cache plugin. This is very important.

  1. wpForo has built-in cache system. It does a very well cache for your forum so it doesn't need other cache plugins.
  2. All cache plugins can't cache wpForo forum page, because wpForo is not based on WordPress Custom Post Types and those plugins have no idea what they should cache and what not. 
  3. The cache plugins kill all dynamic data of your forum page. These plugins cache the whole forum page and always display the same content. You'll not be able to see new topics and posts information. And all other information on forum page cannot be updated, because of cached/static forum page. You'll always see outdated and wrong information.
  4. Cache plugins even kill Login/Logout status of users. When you login the forum page is not updated, you still see [Login] button in menu instead of [Logout] menu. All buttons for authorized users are missing too.
