    Caching not working (Facebook widget example) Link to this post

    Hello all!

    I am making an example of the book SilverStripe 2.4 Module Extension, ...
    The example is a Facebook widget.
    When I show the web page with the plugin, it take a long time to show.
    Then, I applied the cache in the template, as the book says, but I do not notice any improvement.
    Also, if I run with XDebug, every time the page is displayed, the function plugin (Feeds) is executed.
    Apparently, no cache is being done, otherwise the function plugin (Feeds) not be executed.
    What can be happening?

    I am using WAMPServer in Windows 7 / Firefox /

    <% cached 'page', LastEdited, CacheSegment %>

    <!doctype html>
    <html lang="$ContentLocale">

    <meta charset="utf-8"/>
    <% base_tag %>
    <title><% if MetaTitle %>$MetaTitle<% else %>$Title<% end_if %></title>
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico"/>
    <!--[if lt IE 9]>
    <script src="http://html5shim.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/html5.js"></script>



    <div><p><b>Please activate JavaScript.</b><br/>Otherwise you won't be able to use all available functions properly...</p></div>

    <% end_cached %>

    protected function CacheSegment() {
    return $_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"];

    SS_Cache::set_cache_lifetime('any', 3600, 100);

    class FacebookFeedWidget extends Widget {
       public function Feeds(){

           * URL for fetchning the information, convert the returned JSON into an array.
           * It is required to use an access_token which in turn mandates https.
             user_error('Missing Facebook access token - please get one and add it to your mysite/_config.php: define("FACEBOOK_ACCESS_TOKEN", "&lt;your token&gt;");', E_USER_WARNING);
          $url = 'https://graph.facebook.com/' . $this->Identifier . '/feed?limit=' . ($this->Limit + 5) . '&access_token=' . FACEBOOK_ACCESS_TOKEN;
    $context = stream_context_create(array('http' => array('header'=>'Connection: close')));

    $facebook = json_decode(file_get_contents($url,false,$context), true);
    ........ Another code
