WordPress Cache Woes and other Crap

WordPress Cache Woes and other Crap

Now I discover that Internet Explorer users (you know, what most of the world uses) has problems with some of pages here. For one thing, the email page doesn’t work on IE because of some issue with the caching plugin. And now I find that there’s ANOTHER issue with comment submission on IE that I have been trying to debug.

The upshot of all this is that (1) WordPress is a memory / cpu pig when you are running Markdown to do the handy text formatting and (2) You need to use a cacheing plugin that (3) works.

I’m running Firefox here as my main browser, and no longer really use Internet Explorer. I’m switching back to IE6 to see if I can track down these stupid issues.

    Beta5 available that implement what you asked about plugins and ignores completely all POSTs.

    But I think this won’t solve your Exploter related problem, probably your script is expecting some header/cookie that IE does not send. I tried with wget from my computer and the error is similar:

      wget -S “https://davidseah.com/wordpress/email-dave.php” -O –
      —03:22:36— https://davidseah.com/wordpress/email-dave.php
            => `-’

    Thanks for testing.

    Interesting! Thanks for taking the time to check, Gallir. I’ll give Beta6 a try! Thanks for the wget tip too.
