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)
