This documentation is not using the current rendering mechanism and is probably outdated.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.


The extension pdfviewhelpers does not provide any caching mechanism for the generated PDF documents. In fact caching is disabled by default because it makes not much sense to save a PDF document to the TYPO3 frontend cache. Since generating PDF documents is quite time consuming you should implement your own caching strategy by saving the generated PDF files to the filesystem and only generate them when necessary.

It is not possible to cache the Fluid template parsing when using the MultiColumnViewHelper because it implements the ChildNodeAccessInterface. This may lead to a significant loss in performance for that view.
