Summary

This module enables caching for products list and detail view.

Description

This module speeds up your shop by enabling cache for product list and detailed product view. The cache is generated in relation to products, so it will be cleared if product information are changed. If someone buys a product (so the stock is updated) the module clears the cache of all affected products as well.

How to install

Installation is via MagentoConnect

How to Configure

1. You have to make sure that none of your modules is overwriting the blocks

  • Catalog/Product_View
  • Catalog/Product_List

If there is any module overwriting the blocks, you must make sure that either this block or the other block inherits from the opposite and that the most upper class rewrites the base block. Once this is complete you can enable the Catalog Cache in the backend.

2. Change the following xml-configuration in the file app/design/frontend/[[YOUR_PACKAGE]]/[[YOUR_SKIN]]/layout/catalog.xml
< block type="catalog/product_view" name="product.info" template="catalog/product/view.phtml" >

to

< block type="catalogcache/product_view" name="product.info" template="catalog/product/view.phtml" >

Catalog->Catalog and refer to the Frontend-section. There you can find two entries: * Use advanced Cache for products page * Use advanced Cache for products list page Set these toyes to enable the caching. Make ssure the overall block-caching is activated.

Thank you. Your extension gave speed to my website January 24, 2013
Speed improve but No Display Product collections in magento 1.7.1 November 23, 2012
If you actually install this extension the howto.txt advises: &lt;block type="catalog/product_view" name="product.info" template="catalog/product/view.phtml"&gt; to &lt;block type="catalogcache/product_view" name="product.info" template="catalog/product/view.phtml"&gt; However once I change the layout I get the following error: exception 'Mage_Core_Exception' with message 'Invalid block type: Netresearch_CatalogCache_Block_Product_View' in /var/www/vhosts/mysite.com.au/httpdocs/app/Mage.php:563 Would be most grateful for any advice. May 10, 2012
The extension didn't cause crash or any error to me (1.5.0.01) but also didn't find any improvements from google page speed test, how do we measure the effect? January 3, 2012
This extension works in 1.5.1 but when any product is saved it refreshes cache for all products. December 26, 2011
FANTASTIC extension. I use magento 1.6.1, am newbie and I have tons of products (25.000 sku and this is only small test. in final version I expect 500.000 SKUs). I face real preformance problems displyaing categories. On first test environment I enable everything, (change in catalog.xml, but then I face problems with moo_image zoom. I oslve it by copying mooes media.phtml from app\design\frontend\default\default\template\moo\catalog\product\view\ to my template folder: app\design\frontend\default\modern\template\catalog\product\view\. But in second test environment, I didn't change content of catalog.xml - therefore extension owrks only on product_list. I am impressed...: load time change from 5-15 seconds to 1-2 second (it is my line which need this 1 second to transfer content to me) Guys, YOU ROCK! thanks to all of you, who posts experiences here. All comments really help! December 17, 2011
definitely recommend this for those website experiencing slow page speeds. February 11, 2011
This extension really great!! I have magento 1.4.1.1 and it proven working fine there. For those who don't know, this extension only keep the cache for 7200 SECONDS (2hrs). This is caused by false flag on cacheLifeTime() (based on: http://inchoo.net/ecommerce/magento/magento-block-caching/ ) after changing to something big (example 3600 * 24 * 7 * 4 = 4 weeks) my product view page take A LOT FASTER!! before it take me about 30 sec. to load product view page, now only take in blink of an eye ;) So what's need to be done to make things faster for longer time? OK, got to your root directory AND edit following files: ROOT_DIR/includes/src/Netresearch_CatalogCache_Block_Product_View.php and ROOT_DIR/includes/src/Netresearch_CatalogCache_Block_Product_List.php find following code: public function getCacheLifetime() 52 { 53 if($this-&gt;_isCacheActive()) 54 { 55 return false; 56 } 57 } change it to: public function getCacheLifetime() 52 { 53 if($this-&gt;_isCacheActive()) 54 { 55 return 2419200; 56 } 57 } and tadaaaa....your cache hold-up for 4 weeks long (the return value can be change according to your need...just put some value...in seconds) I don't know if I have tmpfs disk for cache directory, will it make it faster? how much faster? interessting...anyway, I hope this tip will help a lot people who just start using magento (like myself) and have some money issue (again, like myself) and stuck to some cheap provider.

Works wonderfully. October 18, 2010
Works great. Brought down my product page load time by 35 %, category pages 24 %. (Numbers are HTML load time only, tested with Apache Bench, running Magento 1.4.1.1.) October 16, 2010
