Thank you to everyone who shares feedback for the Slithy Web plugin!
Added a shortcode [slithy_login] to force the login of a user (for memberships). This is a very simple
implementation that could evolve in the future.
Added support for the cache provided by the SlithyWeb hosting company. Basically, deletes the cache whenever a post has been inserted or updated to ensure we do not read old stuff.
- Fixed a bug linked to missing CSS for tooltips.
- Fixed minor bugs for default values (cache duration) and Google Analytics tags.
- Clarification about the cache duration (must be set in minutes and have a default value of 1 hour if not specified).
- Added an import interface to test the SlithyWeb hosting solution.
- Added basic cache functionality to serve 304 responses when possible.
- Moved some files to reduce the loading in the “inc” directory
- Enhanced some parts for the loading of files for the migration process (Slithy hosting)

Even if the plugin mainly focuses on SlithyWeb users (slithyweb.com), this plugin can be used by everybody for adding the Google Analytics tag.
