ALERT! NOTE: This Plugin is replaced by the AttachContentPlugin


See AttachContentPlugin for the newly named version of this.

This plugin puts any text between a %STARTCACHE{"filename"}% and %ENDCACHE% into an attachment with the given filename.

The current version only refreshes the attachment when the topic is saved. Obviously this means that the attachment can get out of synch if, for example, it explicitly or implicitly refers to other topics.

I wrote this plugin specifically to be able to put my css into topic(s) and still be able to have efficient stylesheets: i.e., without the overhead of TWiki processing. There seem to be a number of other needs, however, and I'm happy to try and accomodate them!

Syntax Rules

Pretty simple. Just put in a %STARTCACHE{"filename"}% before content you want cached, and %ENDCACHE% after it, and the contents in between will be attached to the topic, for easy reference by other pages.

Plugin Settings

Plugin settings are stored as preferences variables. To reference a plugin setting write %<plugin>_<setting>%, i.e. %CACHECONTENTPLUGIN_SHORTDESCRIPTION%

  • One line description, is shown in the TextFormattingRules topic:
    • Set SHORTDESCRIPTION = Caches portions of a topic in attachments to that topic

  • Debug plugin: (See output in data/debug.txt)
    • Set DEBUG = 0

  • Keep paragraph tags
    • Set KEEPPARS = 0
