Plugin Description:

Whenever a page is requested with GetSimple the server needs to open and process every page file of the whole site to generate the main navigation menu. This can take quite a bit of time if the site has many pages. To ease the server load, and speed things up, I made a simple little plugin that implements a caching mechanism for the main navigation menu. This way the server only needs to open 1 file to generate the menu.

The cache is cleared whenever a page is saved and a new cache file is generated for each page the first time someone visits the page.

Works with GetSimple 2.01 and 2.03.
