I'm using the staticpublisher on my SS v2.3. It's working perfectly.
But I need to load some sites dynamicly - the User Defined Forms e.g.
Ho may I define for which sites or site types should not be used the .html files?
Should I use a special form inside every class?

Hi there!

I've quite the same problem. As mentioned here Staticpublisher is designed to generate cache files from static content. So far good so good, but you have also the possibility to sync these cache files to another server via rsync. This works well if you don't have a form (e.g. search) or in general an user action or dynamic content on your page.

Is there a way to cache both, static and dynamic pages (partly) and publish via rsync? I think this is the 95% case!

Many thanks and best regards,

Hi Björn,

You can't do partial caching, but what you *can* do is rsync the entire web-root - cache files, PHP files, assets and all. This works well as long as you pick 1 box to be the "CMS server" that the rsyncs are executed from.

We usually do this by setting up to point to one of the boxes in the cluster, and to load-balance between all boxes.

As for how you define which pages to cache, and which to not cache, that is controlled by your pagesAffectedByChanges() and allPagesToCache() methods.

Potentially, you could add a checkbox field, CacheThisPage, to your Page class, and then use that to define the output of allPagesToCache()
