Topic: Action caching when action renderins a different action
New to caching - I'm using memcached with cache_fu plugin. I'd like to cache an action that's rendered in another action, but since the db calls are in the first action, I'm not getting the results I expect. Sample code below (this is existing code I'm trying to work around):
On index action, if a user isn't logged in, then the welcome action is rendered instead. A logged in user gets dynamic content. I would like to action cache the 'welcome' action and db calls for non-logged in user.
I tried putting '@latest = Products.recent_products(10)' in the 'welcome' action, but since I'm it's rendering a different action, that code won't get called.
So how could I separate this so I can action cache the welcome action for non-logged in user and keep it dynamic for logged in user?
@latest = Products.recent_products(10)
render :action => 'welcome' and return false
# other code for logged in user
# use this template if user not logged in
