JPresta Speed Pack

These fake users are created by Page Cache Ultimate to anonymize the cache (new method). You must not delete them (they will be created again).

There will not have a lot of these fake users, probably less than 5, it depends on the number of groups and the differences in display between them.

They are not active so they will not disturb your statistics.

If you have an Anvato theme, here is what to do to avoid the cart to open each time it is refreshed.

Copy the file /modules/an_theme/views/js/sidebarcart.js in your theme so you can continue to update it without loosing modifications, in /themes/<your_theme>/modules/an_theme/views/js (create folders if needed)

In this file, replace the ligne:

if (prestashop.page.page_name != 'cart' && prestashop.page.page_name != 'checkout') {

By

if (prestashop.page.page_name != 'cart' && prestashop.page.page_name != 'checkout' && requestData.action!='refresh') {

Then clear the cache in Performances page and the cache of your browser so you can test.

If your theme uses the tag "widgetblock" as Warehouse theme does, then you need to clear the cache in Performances page after you enable Page Cache so the template is compiled again.

If you are using Nginx, then make sure your configuration is as follow:

Nginx configuration for Speed Pack module

"Proxy mode" must be ON, other options must be OFF.

If you are using the PageSpeed Apache module developped by Google (x-mod-pagespeed) then you must disable the following option so it does not override the browser cache directives added by Page Cache:

<IfModule pagespeed_module>
ModPagespeedModifyCachingHeaders off
</IfModule>

No, it is highly recommended to keep the Smarty cache enabled. This will speed up pages that are not cached and also pages where the cache is not yet generated.

To get your styles back you just need to clear the cache of "Page Cache Ultimate".

To avoid this issue you can go in "Advanced mode", in the configuration of "Page Cache Ultimate", then in "Cache key" enable "Insert CSS and JS version in cache key".

To avoid the cookie notice to appear 1 second, then disappear, you must override the javascript file of the iqitcookielaw module.

To do it, create a file with the following content:

$(document).ready(function () {
 if (getCookie('cookielaw_module') != 1) {
  $("#iqitcookielaw").addClass('iqitcookielaw-showed');
 }
 $("#iqitcookielaw-accept").click(function (event) {
  event.preventDefault();
  $("#iqitcookielaw").removeClass('iqitcookielaw-showed');
  setcook();
 });
});

function setcook() {
 var name = 'cookielaw_module';
 var value = '1';
 var today = new Date();
 var expire = new Date();
 expire.setTime(today.getTime() + 3600000 * 24 * 14);
 document.cookie = name + "=" + escape(value) + ";path=/;" + ((expire == null) ? "" : ("; expires=" + expire.toGMTString()))
}

function getCookie(cname) {
 var name = cname + "=";
 var ca = document.cookie.split(';');
 for (var i = 0; i != ca.length; i++) {
  var c = ca[i];
  while (c.charAt(0) == ' ') c = c.substring(1);
  if (c.indexOf(name) != -1) return c.substring(name.length, c.length);
 }
 return "";
}

And place it in the theme (or child theme if you have one): /themes/warehouse/modules/iqitcookielaw/views/js/front.js

Then clear the cache in the Performances page.

When the cache is created, the page is anonymized, that means it is displayed without any information about the visitor displaying the page.

Modules that display content relative to the current visitor can be marked as dynamic, that means the content will be refreshed (replaced) by a background request (Ajax) in the browser that will carry the context of the current visitor.

If you check the option "Display nothing in cache" then the module will not be called to display its content in this hook during the creation of the cache. However, the content will be displayed as other dynamic modules (with a background request (Ajax)).

If the products list is reloaded each time you display a page with a products list then you can fix this by modifying the file /warehouse/modules/ps_shoppingcart/ps_shoppingcart.js as follow:

How to fix warehouse theme

Replace this line:

prestashop.emit('updateFacets', window.location.href);

By:

if (event.reason && event.reason.linkAction != 'refresh') {
    prestashop.emit('updateFacets', window.location.href);
}

Update your "Cookies - GDPR Cookie law (block before consent)" module to version 1.5.6 minimum.

Update "Page Cache Ultimate" to version 7.9.39 minimum for full compatibility with the cookiesplus module.

For Prestashop 1.7

  1. Disable the 2 modules (this also works if they are not yet installed)
  2. In the file /modules/cookiesplus/override_17/classes/Hook.php rename the coreCallHook function to coreCallHook_off and the coreRenderWidget function to coreRenderWidget_off (in fact, Page Cache Ultimate will execute the appropriate processing if the cookiesplus module is activated).
  3. You can reactivate (or install) the 2 modules.

In the configuration of the shopping cart, in section "Add to Cart Action", disable the option "Open the cart".

Creative Element - shopping cart options

Yes, all images of your shop will be automatically converted into the WEBP format. Even images from CMS or other modules like blog.

This is normal, when the cache is not available the display is as slow as without the cache.

You should only empty the cache when necessary (CSS or Javascript modification, for templates choose the option "Recompile template files if they have been updated" in the "Performance" page).

YES you still need a WEBP module for Prestashop! Because the feature has a bug in PS 8.0. It should be fixed in PS 8.1 but I will check this as soon as it is released because I don't know if JPG images will be displayed to browsers that cannot read WEBP format like Safari (iPhone).

This has been very tricky to find a configuration that works fine. I'm not expert in the configuration of nginx so I guess there is an other way of doing it. If you want to improve this configuration then contact me, I will be happy to update this post to help other people!

Here is my solution (be kind).

Before the section "server", place this code:

map $http_accept $webp_enable {
	default 0;
	"~*webp" 1;
}

It will tell us if the browser of the visitor can read WEBP images.

You probably have multiple lines of "rewrite" for all images, place the following code just before it:

# Jpresta Speedpack
if ($webp_enable = 1) {
	# Rewrite images URL using a specific extension ".webp_compressor" so we can have specific rules to compress the image/svg
	# if the webp file is not already created.
	rewrite "^/c/([0-9]+)(\-[_a-zA-Z0-9-]*)/(.*)\.jpg$" /img/c/$1$2.webp_compressor last;
	rewrite "^/c/([_a-zA-Z-]+)/(.*)\.jpg$" /img/c/$1.webp_compressor last;
	rewrite "^/([0-9])(\-[_a-zA-Z0-9-]*)?/(\P{M}\p{M}*)*\.jpg$" /img/p/$1/$1$2.webp_compressor last;
	rewrite "^/([0-9])([0-9])(\-[_a-zA-Z0-9-]*)?/(\P{M}\p{M}*)*\.jpg$" /img/p/$1/$2/$1$2$3.webp_compressor last;
	rewrite "^/([0-9])([0-9])([0-9])(\-[_a-zA-Z0-9-]*)?/(\P{M}\p{M}*)*\.jpg$" /img/p/$1/$2/$3/$1$2$3$4.webp_compressor last;
	rewrite "^/([0-9])([0-9])([0-9])([0-9])(\-[_a-zA-Z0-9-]*)?/(\P{M}\p{M}*)*\.jpg$" /img/p/$1/$2/$3/$4/$1$2$3$4$5.webp_compressor last;
	rewrite "^/([0-9])([0-9])([0-9])([0-9])([0-9])(\-[_a-zA-Z0-9-]*)?/(\P{M}\p{M}*)*\.jpg$" /img/p/$1/$2/$3/$4/$5/$1$2$3$4$5$6.webp_compressor last;
	rewrite "^/([0-9])([0-9])([0-9])([0-9])([0-9])([0-9])(\-[_a-zA-Z0-9-]*)?/(\P{M}\p{M}*)*\.jpg$" /img/p/$1/$2/$3/$4/$5/$6/$1$2$3$4$5$6$7.webp_compressor last;
	rewrite "^/([0-9])([0-9])([0-9])([0-9])([0-9])([0-9])([0-9])(\-[_a-zA-Z0-9-]*)?/(\P{M}\p{M}*)*\.jpg$" /img/p/$1/$2/$3/$4/$5/$6/$7/$1$2$3$4$5$6$7$8.webp_compressor last;
	rewrite "^/([0-9])([0-9])([0-9])([0-9])([0-9])([0-9])([0-9])([0-9])(\-[_a-zA-Z0-9-]*)?/(\P{M}\p{M}*)*\.jpg$" /img/p/$1/$2/$3/$4/$5/$6/$7/$8/$1$2$3$4$5$6$7$8$9.webp_compressor last;  
	# all other images
	rewrite "^(.+)\.jpg$" $1.webp_compressor last;   
}

location ~* ^(.+)\.webp_compressor$ {
	# Indicates to proxies that the file content/format depends (Vary) on the "Accept" header
	add_header Vary Accept;

	# Indicates to proxies that the file can be cached for the max duration
	add_header Pragma public;
	add_header Cache-Control "public, must-revalidate, proxy-revalidate";
	expires max;

	# Indicates to nginx not to log access
	access_log off;
	log_not_found off;

	# Try to serve the WEBP file directly or compress the image
	set $url_webp_compressor "/modules/jprestaspeedpack/controllers/front/webp.php?src=$1.jpg";
	try_files $1.webp $url_webp_compressor;
}

WARNING: if you are using the standalone WEBP compression module then you must replace 'jprestaspeedpack' by 'jprestawebp'.

Contact me if you need help or if you can improve the script!

If the currency selection list does not work anymore, check these 2 options:

The option "Ignore URLs matching this regex" must include ".*SubmitCurrency=1.*", e.g. ".*[\?&]q=.*|.*SubmitCurrency=1.*"

The option "Ignored URL parameters" should not include "submitcurrency,id_currency"

You may also want to disable the browser cache, because if the visitor changes the currency after displaying several pages, if they return to these pages, the original currency will be displayed.

Don't forget to clear the module and browser cache after these changes.

​Yes, browsers that cannot read WEBP format will get the original format (JPG/PNG).

When you modify a product, a category, a CMS page, a price, the stock, etc. the cache is automatically refreshed.

When you add, delete or modify a module, then you need to clear the cache manually because this cannot be automatically detected. For exemple, when you modify the slider of the home page.

When you modify the CSS or a template of your theme, then you need to clear the cache manually because this cannot be automatically detected.

When you synchronize or modify your catalog, your prices and/or your stocks using an external application, you will probably need to clear the cache manually or with a script because hooks of Prestashop are not executed.

To clear the cache of specific pages, you can use the CRON/API URLs that you will find in the "API" menu in the configuration of Page Cache Ultimate. You can also use the statistics table to filter pages that you want to refresh, then click on button "Clear cache (only files)".

Also be aware that the browser cache cannot be cleared, this is why it is limited in time.

This happens because the sign in link is loaded dynamically and so the "back" parameter which referers to the current URL is set with the URL of the dynamic modules.

To avoid this problem, go in the configuration of Page Cache Ultimate, in menu "Dynamic modules and widgets", at the bottom add the following javascript code to the field "Javascript to execute":

if (!prestashop_pc.customer.is_logged) {
  $('header a').each(function() {
    $(this).attr('href').replace('ajax%3Dtrue', '').replace('page_cache_dynamics_mods%3D=1', '')
  });
}

Clear the cache and it should fix the problem.

​These directories are created when the cache cannot be fully deleted in PHP because it's too long and will failed with a timed out error. So instead of deleting the cache directory, it is simply renamed with this suffix.

You can delete all these directories with suffix please_delete_me but I recommend to do it directly in a server console because it will be too long to do it by FTP.

These hooks are for developers of modules, contact the support if you need help.

Here is an exemple of how to implement the hooks' functions:

    /**
     * Called each time a page is displayed so this must remain very fast!
     * @param $params Empty array
     * @return mixed The datas you will need in hookActionJPrestaRestoreSpecificCacheKeyInfos()
     */
    public function hookActionJPrestaGetSpecificCacheKeyInfos($params) {
        // Let's say that the cookie 'test' modify the content of the page, we indicates to the cache manager
        // to generate a cache key that depends on the value of this cookie
        return $_COOKIE['test'];
    }

    /**
     * This function is called by Page Cache Ultimate when the cache-warmer service want to generate the cache of a
     * specific context. In this case we must restore the context so the content is the good one.
     * @param $params $params['specifics'] contains the datas returned by the hook 'ActionJPrestaGetSpecificCacheKeyInfos'
     */
    public function hookActionJPrestaRestoreSpecificCacheKeyInfos($params)
    {
        // Here we will just modify the $_COOKIE value, we don't need to send the cookie to the browser with function
        // setcookie, we just want the remaining PHP code to execute to get the correct value of the cookie.
        $_COOKIE['test'] = $params['specifics'];
    }

The Creative Elements module allows you to edit parts of your store with links/buttons displayed directly on your shop when you are logged into your Prestashop admin. To preserve this functionality, the cache is deactivated with the reason "editing-with-creative-element". Rest assured, your visitors do benefit from the cache, it's only users connected to the admin who have no cache. To get the cache, simply display the store in a private tab of your browser.

The first thing to do is to make sure you have the latest version of the module, as I'm constantly improving it to reduce memory consumption, both on the database side and on the hard disk.

The second thing is to run a purge periodically (every 2 or 3 days). A purge removes the cache of pages that no longer exist or whose context no longer exists. This does not affect cache performance. You can perform a purge manually via a button under the cache statistics table, or by scheduling a CRON task with the URL displayed in the "API (CRON URLs)" menu of the module configuration.

Finally, if there are directories in /var/cache/pagecache ending in "please_delete_me", you can delete them. These are old caches that PHP was unable to delete completely (too long).

The module does not call the Hook which allows the update.

You must modify the imageResize() function in the /modules/prestablog/prestablog.php file:

Replace this

         return ImageManager::write('jpg', $dest_image, $file_after);

By this

         $ret = ImageManager::write('jpg', $dest_image, $file_after);

         Hook::exec('actionOnImageResizeAfter', ['dst_file' => $file_after, 'file_type' => 'jpg']);

         return $ret;

​​Afterwards your images will be updated.

Static caching can only be used if the visitor's context is known. The context contains a great deal of information that cannot be deduced from the URL alone: currency, user groups, choice of cookies, taxes to be applied, etc. This context is stored in a cookie called "jpresta_cache_context".

This context is stored in a cookie named "jpresta_cache_context", which is added when the user displays a 1st page. Once the cookie is present, the static cache can be used.

Go in the configuration of the module, in menu "Caching system" make sure "Prestashop Static!" is selected. If it is already selected, then select "Standard file system" and save, after that select "Prestashop Static!" and save again. This will reactivate the static cache.
