The problem is that I have a News and Updates feed on my homepage and it is causing my ip to call the site an excessive amount of times over the day and causes the server to crash if the site is busy (at least that is what I suspect the problem to be). A way I have thought of solving the problem is in Magento for my custom-blog-feed to come from the cache if exists in there. If not then it will run the function the normal way.
My question is how do I get Magento to look for it in the cache and if it finds it display the feeds if not then the function will come in to play and bring them in.
I am sorry if I haven't explained this too well as I do not 100% know if this is even possible but its the only thing I can think of to solve my problem. Let me know what other information you may need to help answer this question & I apologies if its not 100% clear what I am trying to do. I need help :(
