Hi,

I’ve been experimenting with Quick Cache and I notice it’s caching 404 Not Found pages. In addition to that it’s sending header status code 200 (OK) for follow-up requests.

Is there anyway to disable caching of 404′s, which, by itself, would eliminate the 200 (OK) status code from being sent? I don’t mind applying a dirty hack directly to the source code.

Thanks.

Thanks for reporting this important issue

This has been addressed in the past, and Quick Cache does cache 404 pages for the sake of keeping robots from trying to access pages that don’t exist, and therefore this is the intended behavior. If, however, you’d rather not have this happen you can temporarily disallow caching through Quick Cache during runtime with the QUICK_CACHE_ALLOWED constant.

This would work:

<?php
if(is_404())
	define("QUICK_CACHE_ALLOWED", false);
The above should go into a Must-Use Plugin. You can accomplish this by first creating a .php file with your favorite text editor, and pasting the code snippet above into the file. Then, you’ll need to upload the file via FTP to your /wp-content/mu-plugins/ directory. If you do not have this directory already, create it. After the file is created, the code will automatically fire.
