I am using the widget framework to run a latest threads / posts section in the sidebar. It works fine, however new posts / threads are slow to update / appear.
It can take up to 2 minutes for a new thread or post to appear in the sidebar. I'm just wondering if there's a way to change this, so they either appear instantly, or at least a bit faster in the side bar.
I haven't tested it, but that should disable any caching.
You want to be weary of this. It is cached for a reason - a very good reason. Without the cache, every single time the widget is loaded on a page it will query the database. On a busy forum this could be a massive drain on resources.
