$smwgFactboxUseCache is a configuration parameter that sets whether or not a factbox content should be stored in cache. The configuration parameter was introduced in Semantic MediaWiki 1.9.0Released on 3 January 2014 and compatible with MW 1.19.0 - 1.22.x. and deprecated in Semantic MediaWiki 3.0.0Released on 11 October 2018 and compatible with MW 1.27.0 - 1.31.x..1

This configuration parameter was deprecated with Semantic MediaWiki 3.0.0Released on 11 October 2018 and compatible with MW 1.27.0 - 1.31.x. in favour of option SMW_FACTBOX_CACHE to configuration parameter $smwgFactboxFeaturesSets the behaviour of features related to the factbox streamlining the overall configuration of Semantic MediaWiki.1 Thus you are advised to migrate your settings in "LocalSettings.php" to the new configuration parameter since this one will be removed with the release of Semantic MediaWiki 3.1.0Released on and compatible with MW 1.31.0 - 1.33.x. in 2019.
This configuration parameter requires configuration parameter $smwgCacheTypeSets which object cache Semantic MediaWiki should use to track temporary changes be set to something else than CACHE_NONE; otherwise caching will have no effect.

Default setting[edit]

$smwgFactboxUseCache = true;

This means that the data shown in the factbox are cached. This will considerable improve page response time as non-changed page content will not cause re-parsing of factbox content and instead is served directly from cache while only a new revision will trigger to re-parse the factbox.

Changing the default setting[edit]

To modify the setting to this configuration parameter, add one of the following lines to your "LocalSettings.php" file after the enableSemantics() call:

Disable the caching of data displayed in the factbox
$smwgFactboxUseCache = false;

This means the data shown in the factbox are not being cached.

This setting equals the legacy behaviour of Semantic MediaWiki 1.8.0Released on 2 December 2012 and compatible with MW 1.17.0 - 1.22.x
(except 1.22.1).
and earlier, then every page request will bind the factbox to be re-parsed.
