Exclusions settingsAccelerator for WordPress

Here can be specified pages’ URLs that should be excluded from processing by both caching as content processing engines.

Note. There are additional user exclusion argument settings that are used independently.

URI paths#

Pages’ URLs beginning these strings in their paths will be excluded. You can add parts with or without a / at the beginning.

Regular expressions are also supported. Current path is always compared without beginning slash. E.g. if you want to exclude all pages except site’s root then you need to add @^[^/].*@ expression. Any regular expression quote symbols except / can be used.

Note. These strings are always related to site’s root address. E.g. if site URL is https://mysites.com/one and you want to exclude https://mysites.com/one/subdir, then you need to add only subdir to the list.

URI arguments#

  • Exclude all

    If checked, all pages’ URLs having any arguments will be excluded.

  • Exclude list

    Pages’ URLs having arguments that begin with any of the specified strings will be excluded.

  • Cache skip all

    If checked, all pages’ URLs having any arguments will be treated as without arguments and cached as the same items. E.g. https://mysite.com/page1?a1=1&a2=2 will be processed as https://mysite.com/page1.

  • Cache skip list

    Pages’ URLs having arguments that begin with any of the specified strings will be treated as without these arguments and cached as the same items. E.g. if ‘a1’ is specified then https://mysite.com/page1?a1=1&a2=2 will be processed as https://mysite.com/page1?a2=2. It increases pages’ response speed when they are, for instance, opened from external sources appended by tracking arguments like Facebook’s fbclid.

Agents#

Pages’ requests having these strings in their user-agents will be excluded.

Cookies#

Pages’ requests having cookie names that begin with any of the specified strings will be excluded.
