Tweaking BatCache to play nicely with Woocommerce

Are you caching your WordPress sites with MemCache object cache and BatCache advanced cache? Well you should be.
Here’s a tweak to stop the advanced cache caching dynamic WooCommerce pages like the cart and checkout.

Edit advanced-cache.php, find the comment

// Never batcache interactive scripts or API endpoints.

and add the following snippet of code

// never cache woocommerce
$wc_page_uris = array(
	'/cart', //your cart uri
	'/checkout', //your checkout uri
	'/my-account', //your page for your users
foreach( $wc_page_uris as $wc_uri )
	if( strstr( $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], $wc_uri ) )

  1. Hi Kieran,

    What would you do in instances where you need to show a live cart on all pages. Even something such as the numbers of items in your cart, or the total value of the cart.

    Can you exclude fragments from being cached?
