    I’ve already open a ticket about this but I think it’s better to reminder it also in the forum to keep the topic alive until it’s resolved.

    The problem is with the dynamic cache managed from a SiteGround hosting plan and a cookie set by the plugin “Hotel Booking”.
    Obviously, the problem is also present in all hosting plans of other companies that use the dynamic cache.

    The website is not cached because there’s a cookie set for mphb_session.

    This is the reply received from SiteGround tech assistance about my request how to ignore the cookie using SG Optimizer:
    ———-
    We can’t ignore cookies because of their bad coding. It doesn’t make sense to open a session if you want that content to be cached. And it doesn’t make sense to have session before you even start showing dynamic content per user. That’s just bad coding. You can either consider changing that booking plugin with something better or using a different solution. We will not be changing the way our NGINX caching works…
    ———-

    The problem is serious because without the dynamic cache the TTFB is very bad with possible penalties in Google ranking.

    If anyone has already found a solution on their own and wants to share it, it would be greatly appreciated.

    With the new Core Web Vitals of Google it’s important to have excellent performance.

    Another month has gone by and my clients are furious with me about the poor performance of their websites… in my opinion this problem deserves top priority.

    Me too, clearly many users experiencing this issue, it renders the theme / plugin and website worse than useless

    Hi. Is this issue still officially open? I’m using Hotel Booking version 4.4.4 on a client site and it has this issue. Is there a roadmap for when this issue will be fixed. My hosting provides CDN with dynamic cache and web optimisation that does not currently work with Hotel Booking.

    Thanks

    I’m hopeful. ๐Ÿ™‚

    John and the team at MotoPress are great at releasing updates. They’ve added a lot of value over the past 24 months. I’m sure they are considering this update seriously.

    Great plugin!

    I guess my problem with very poor performence no metter what I’m doing is related to the same problem.

    Possibly…

    I managed to optimise my website so it loads a lot faster.

    I used W3 Total Cache and Asset CleanUp plugins. Took some tinkering and trial and error but eventually changed the load speed on mobile from 30s+ to under 4s. Good luck!

    We’re having this issue as well.

    Had to resort to disabling caching on all accommodation pages, checkout and search results page which is far from ideal.

    Any update on a fix for this would be great.
