Pods Alternative Cache Add-On 2.0.4 Release
We just released Pods Alternative Cache Add-On 2.0.4. This release includes some minor fixes and an important new enhancement for people hosted on WPEngine.
- New Object Cache Fallback: When visitors who are logged out go to your WPEngine site, WPE intentionally restricts file writes. As a result of this, we had a workaround in place that would help, but there are still cases where that workaround is not enough. We have now added a fallback option for file write failures, it will now use the default object cache in those cases. This will ensure that in cases where database transients were used normally when file writes would fail, they never get sent to the database which would potentially cause problems with the options autoload handling and WPE’s object caching configuration.
- Support for WordPress 5.0: This was pretty easy, not much needed to happen here except for testing and confirming things are working.
- PHPCS code formatting improvements: On a technical level, our small amount of code is now more readable and produces less notices/warnings from PHP Code Sniffer.
