Awesome set of plugins! Thank you for all the great work! I’m hoping to get some advice about using plugins from the Groups ecosystem with server-side caching solutions. Our hosting provider (SiteGround) offers three “levels” of caching to help speed up site performance–static, dynamic and memcached. Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen instances where restricted Recent Forum Topics that are normally displayed only to defined groups of logged in users remain visible in a sidebar widget even after a user has logged out and returned to the page that features the list. The topics remain visible even after the page is refreshed and the browser cache is cleared by the visitor. However, the topics disappear after the server-side cache is purged and the visitor refreshes the page. Based on our testing, the issue does not appear to occur with static and/or dynamic caching enabled, but it does appear to occur when we activate memcached (https://memcached.org/about). For now, we’ve disabled memcached, but are wondering whether (1) there’s a way to take advantage of it without breaking things and (2) whether there might be any other known issues related to caching that we should be aware of or test for. Thanks in advance!
