I saw this older post when searching for information:
withfragmentcachingonecancacheparts of a page. However, more often
than not what I would need is the exact opposite approach. I would like
to be able to use action cashing and have a mechanism for telling Rails
to excludeoneor more areas from the cashing and fill them with dynamic
content instead. A good example would be a page whereallcontent would
be perfectly cachablebutonetiny line saying 'logged in as
Wouldn't a mechanism for doing this more elegantly be a great addition
to Rails? Or am I missing something and this is in fact currently
I have exactly the same need - a front page that has a bit of text
that changes depending on whether the user is logged in or not.
Everything else could be cached using page cacheing.
Hrm.... I'll take a look at the code... maybe something like
'cache_except' is possible?
