What does the Wordpress plugin actually do?


Fastly’s Wordpress plugin is, at it’s core, a PHP wrapper for our public API that integrates with Wordpress’ publishing.

The plugin ships with two main features:

  • An admin interface that allows to control Purge All and Surrogate Key functionality.
  • Single object purging integrated with post purging (publishing or editing a post purges the object from the cache)

The plugin also configures headers for proper caching.

Installation should be easy, but if you need the source, it’s at https://github.com/fastly/wordpress-plugin
