plugin Allows the configuration default caching behavior for media files

Tagged with caching, media


Search and install the plugin using the Extension Manager. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.


By DokuWiki default, all media files are cached for at least one hour or what is specified in cachetime, whichever is higher. This behavior can be modified with the recache and nocache parameters in page's syntax.

This plugin alters the default behavior (i.e. if neither recache nor nocache has been specified) to act as if nocache has been specified in the syntax.

This plugin maybe useful if you media files change often and it's important that your users see the new version right away. However using this plugin may cause a performance hit, because the server has to be contacted for every media-file every time.

Configuration and Settings

  • always-validate – unchecking this effectively deactivates the plugin
  • more configuration options may be added in the future
