What is anonymous page caching?


MindTouch uses page caching for anonymous users to reduce the amount of time it takes for a page to load.  Anonymous users (users who are not logged in) on your MindTouch  site can view pages faster and thus enjoy faster access to your help content.

How does anonymous page caching work?


When anonymous users visit a page, MindTouch stores the content of the page in a server-side cache, making high-speed retrieval of pages possible. The page's cache remains cached for 6 hours. And so anonymous users who previously visited a page and then revisit the (now cached) page don't have to wait for the page to load from scratch. The time it takes for MindTouch servers to collect  information for cached pages drops on average to 50 ms.

This feature is by design not enabled for pro members, in order to allow immediate visibility to any changes made to page contents.
