This documentation is not using the current rendering mechanism and is probably outdated. The extension maintainer should switch to the new system. Details on how to use the rendering mechanism can be found here.
Adding Static to your template¶
You can include static to your template in order to set a global lifetime for your caches. Just add "Extension 'MageCache' (magecache)" to your template static like shown in the following picture.
Changing the default lifetime¶
The global lifetime of the caches is configured in the Typoscript. You can refer to the constants to change the lifetime setting like shown in the picture below.
Another way is to directly change the Typoscript Setup with
plugin.tx_magecache.settings.cache_lifetime = XXX
