first of all i want to thank all django developers and contributors for such awesome framework.
the question is: it would be nice if all generic views got no_cache=True{False} parameter to avoid caching of i.e. backoffice's pages based on generic views

Hi Michael,

I'm not sure what you're looking for here. What is backoffice? And what caching are you referring to -- the Django cache framework?

comment:2 Changed 12 years ago by Michael Samoylov <michael.samoylov@…>

yes, it's all about django cache and generic views. a possibility to enable/disable caching with generic views

Generic views don't do any caching on their own. Any caching that they do is caching that *you* (the developer) have added yourself, so I don't see how generic views should gain functionality to disable caching.

It sounds like he's just caching his entire site, in which case it might be more productive in his case to use the finer-grained caching, or use wrappers around generic views to add the never_cache decorator.
