Check usage and version matrix.

The MagicNoCache extension creates a new magic word __NOCACHE__ and disables the cache for any page in which it finds it. Thus it makes sure that specific pages never get cached as they get updated extremely frequently.

The extension will attempt to disable the caching of the page by calling the disableCache() function of the Parser object and also the enableClientCache() function of the OutputPage object ($wgOut)


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called MagicNoCache in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
    wfLoadExtension( 'MagicNoCache' );
  • Yes Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

To users running MediaWiki 1.29 or earlier:

The instructions above describe the new way of installing this extension using wfLoadExtension() If you need to install this extension on these earlier versions (MediaWiki 1.29 and earlier), instead of wfLoadExtension( 'MagicNoCache' );, you need to use:

require_once "$IP/extensions/MagicNoCache/MagicNoCache.php";
