Widget Caching
Widget caching prevents the system from having to render a widget at every request. This is especially useful for complex widgets. In most cases you will not have to change these settings since the defaults are automatically set.

Cached
Check this box to cache the widget.

Page Cached
Check this box to cache the widget per page. Use this for widgets that change for each page on which they reside.

Cache Expiration
Enter a number in seconds to define how often the widget will be re-rendered. A value of 0 indicates it will only be re-rendered if an updated widget is published.

CAUTION:
Editing a widget will change how it appears on any other page that uses it. To determine if a widget is used on other pages, click on the Info tab on the Widget Properties window.

Note:
You can go back to any previous version of a Widget. See Widget Versions for more information.
