Persistent Object Cache Issues

What is Object Caching?

Object caching involves storing database queries so that the next time a piece of data is needed, it is delivered from cache without having to query the database.

Why Persistent?

Object caching is more powerful when it can be used to cache objects between multiple page loads.

What's the Problem?

It can cause some unexpected issues, like displaying wrong author names or data, particularly on guest or co-authored posts.

How To Fix?

Issues with Object Cache can be easily resolved by excluding Users object from persistent object cache. Some web performance optimization plugins, like W3TC, offer an option to exclude specific objects to be cached on persistent object cache. However, object cache exclusions might not be available when object cache is provided by your hosting, like WPEngine. In such cases, and if you are experiencing issues, we recommend disabling object cache.
