clear_cache() — clears the cache for a specific template


void clear_cache(string template,
                 string cache_id,
                 string compile_id,
                 int expire_time);
  • If you have multiple caches for a template, you can clear a specific cache by supplying the cache_id as the second parameter.

  • You can also pass a $compile_id as a third parameter. You can group templates together so they can be removed as a group, see the caching section for more information.

  • As an optional fourth parameter, you can supply a minimum age in seconds the cache file must be before it will get cleared.

Example 13.8. clear_cache()

// clear the cache for a template

// clear the cache for a particular cache id in an multiple-cache template
$smarty->clear_cache('index.tpl', 'MY_CACHE_ID');


See also clear_all_cache() and caching section.
