How does the generator work?

Our generator works from cache, because it would slow down the website, if it would have to go through the whole database every time, when you go to a page, where the slider is. So in it’s settings there is a Cache expiration time given, and that is how often it will ask down the new data. This way, if the cache expiration time is 24 hours, and let’s say you will get 100 visitors a day, who will check 5 of your pages (which are showing this slider), then our slider will only go through the database once in a day, while if there wasn’t any cache, it would go all 500 times through it. A slider isn’t the main content, it’s just to advertise them, so you shouldn’t care about not having your contents there immediately, and if you do, give 1 hour expiration time, or just always go to the Smart Slider’s Settings → Cache, and click on Refresh Generator, when you are done with your content.
