My drupal 7 site has Boost module (7.1.beta1, the version previous to the current release) installed and I didn't change any settings from the stock install. I saved the settings configuration with the
<front> exception, generated the htaccess code, added it to my root htaccess file, turned Drupal core cache for anonymous users off... Everything works, ie, pages get cached to the boost cache directory and anonymous browsing is served from the boost cache. Only problem is that the front page is being cached even when my boost setting exception using the default
<front> should be preventing the front page from being cached. I apologize if this is a redundant thread,I searched but mostly people have the opposite problem (ie, they want the front page cached-whereas I don't). I've also cleared the cache via /performance tab after enabling it and made sure there wasn't a boost cache for the front page .
Does anyone know why the boost exception setting isn't working for the front page? Is there perhaps another way to hack boost for this one page to not be 'boosted'? Thanks.
