I have a listing page of entries, some of which may have future-dated postDates. I want to cache the output, but only until one of the pending entries goes live.

1 Answer 1


Easy! Get the most soonest upcoming pending entry, and use until:

{% set firstPending = craft.entries({
  section: 'articles',
  status: 'pending',
  order: 'postDate asc'
}).first %}
{% set cacheUntil = firstPending ? firstPending.postDate : now|date_modify('+1 year') %}

{% set content %}
    {% cache until cacheUntil %}
    {% endcache %}
{% endset %}

Note that this solution requires Craft 2.2.2598 or later.

  • Not sure if there's a way to include the until statement conditionally all-together, that way you wouldn't need to do now|date_modify('+1 year')

  • if craft.config.enableCache is just a custom config var I'm using, doesn't have anything to do with the question.

  • Just FYI... It's not necessary to specify "limit: 1" when you're using .first.

  • Changed my code to reflect that!

  • Your original solution will work with a small tweak to the way cache clearing works in Craft. The next update will include that tweak. Commented Oct 22, 2014 at 21:39
