I am trying to figure out a way to display profiles on my site randomly and using cache techniques to make it faster.
I am hoping that someone can explain how caching works and if the idea I have would work.
Instead of caching a page with 5 user profiles on it, can I cache the user profiles seperately and have the page include random profiles?
I was thinking about saving the summarized user profiles that are found often seperately as text or html files and "including" them when a search turns up their profile (rather than generating it on the fly), and only updating them when the user updates their profile. When someone does a search, the profiles would be assembled randomly onto the page.
IF there are any good tutorials or articles online that explain how to cache, please include them.
