Unfortunately, the architectural limitations of this plugin prevent HTML from being cached, unless overridden by a performance-oriented plugin that counteracts the default headers generated by PHP. When we contacted Kount’s Support team regarding this issue, their response was to rely on these additional plugins, which essentially act as patches for poorly coded plugins. In an ideal scenario, such plugins should not be necessary if everyone followed best practices. As of now, Saucal cannot confidently endorse this plugin for large-scale use, as it still relies on an external dependency to achieve acceptable performance. In order for us to reconsider our stance, it is imperative that the plugin’s architecture is thoroughly revised, eliminating the need for stock PHP sessions.
