SharePoint: Output caching not retrieving pages from cache


for subsequent requests, you see the date in the output page (right click IE page, View Source, etc) updated (it should remain constant for the period of time page in cache is not invalidated):

>>> Rendered using cache profile:Public Internet (Purely Anonymous) at: 2008-09-16T12:59:31


This issue may happen for requests that include query strings, like '?var=val'.

Go to http://your%20server/cache%20profiles/allitems.aspx, and set 'Vary by Query String Parameters' to the value of the query param (in the example above, 'var') for the appropriate cache profiles.

SharePoint: Root folder element not returned through SPList.GetItems(SPQuery)

Problem: a query like this

                SPQuery q = new SPQuery();
q.Query = "<Where><Eq><FieldRef Name='MyField'/><Value Type='Text'>ABC</Value></Eq></Where>";
q.ViewAttributes = "Scope=\"Recursive\"";
SPListItemCollection c = l.GetItems(q);

on a list like with one element like

Folder, MyField='ABC'

was not returning the element.


q.ViewAttributes = "Scope=\"RecursiveAll\"";

See here why ☺
