Twenty Eleven Ephemera widget fails to prevent caching in Customizer preview

Reported by: westonruter's profile westonruter Owned by: karmatosed's profile karmatosed
Milestone: 4.6 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.2
Component: Bundled Theme Keywords: good-first-bug has-patch

Changes to Twenty Eleven's Ephemera widget are currently getting cached when being changes in the Customizer Preview. This is specifically a problem when an external persistent object cache is used, since the cache gets dumped with each request otherwise.

A change somewhat like this is needed:

  • src/wp-content/themes/twentyeleven/inc/widgets.php

    class Twenty_Eleven_Ephemera_Widget extends WP_Widget { 
    5656                if ( ! isset( $args['widget_id'] ) )
    5757                        $args['widget_id'] = null;
    59                 if ( isset( $cache[ $args['widget_id'] ] ) ) {
     59                if ( ! is_customize_preview() && isset( $cache[ $args['widget_id'] ] ) ) {
    6060                        echo $cache[ $args['widget_id'] ];
    6161                        return;
    6262                }
    class Twenty_Eleven_Ephemera_Widget extends WP_Widget { 
    132132                endif;
    134134                $cache[ $args['widget_id'] ] = ob_get_flush();
    135                 wp_cache_set( 'widget_twentyeleven_ephemera', $cache, 'widget' );
     135                if ( ! is_customize_preview() ) {
     136                        wp_cache_set( 'widget_twentyeleven_ephemera', $cache, 'widget' );
     137                }
    136138        }

New contributor here, so hopefully I'm doing this right.

I was able to duplicate this issue in the twentyeleven theme by installing W3 Total Cache and toggling on all caching types. After activating the cache, I went to edit the title of the Ephemera widget in the Customizer. The new title did not show up in the preview pane.

After the changes to widgets.php, I went back into the Customizer and was able to edit and view the new title.

Hi @anneschmidt and welcome. Unfortunately, I am unable to get your patch working. Can you please follow the instructions here for creating a patch: I do notice also, you have a few new lines that @westonruter's suggestion doesn't. It would be a good idea to tidy those.

If you are having issues creating the patch, just let us know and I can commit your suggestion still in your name. Thanks so much for contributing.
