RunCloud Hub is a WordPress plugin that allows you to manage and optimize your website performance using NGINX page caching.

Although it can significantly improve your website speed, there may be some pages on your website that you don’t want to cache, such as dynamic pages that change frequently, pages that require user input – such as logins, shopping cart, checkout, or account pages. Let’s see how to exclude these pages from caching.

In RunCloud Hub settings, you can fine-tune your page caching strategy and ensure that only the pages that need to be cached actually are. This will help you optimize your website performance and user experience.

The RunCache Rules settings allow you to specify various criteria to exclude pages from caching based on a matching URL path, cookie name, browser user-agent, visitor IP address, or query string. You can also ignore or allow certain query strings to cache pages with different parameters.

To access the RunCache Rules settings, follow these steps:

  • Log in to your WordPress dashboard and go to RunCloud Hub > RunCache. You can use RunCloud Hub’s built-in login feature for this.
  • Scroll down to the RunCache Rules section. You will see four tabs: Cache Exclusion Settings, Cache Query String Settings, Cache Preload Settings, and Cache Purge Settings. Click inside the text box that corresponds to the criteria you want to use to exclude pages from caching.
  • Enter the values for the criteria you want to use – one per line. For example, if you want to exclude pages with /login/ in the URL path, enter /login/ in the Cache Exclusion Settings tab. If you want to exclude pages with utm_source in the query string, enter utm_source in the Cache Query String Settings tab.
  • Click on the Save Changes button at the bottom of the page.

Note: You can use regular expressions (regex) to match multiple values with a single pattern. For example, if you want to exclude all pages that start with /wp-admin/, you can enter /wp-admin/.* in the Cache Exclusion Settings tab.
