About layout creation with renderSection - edica - 09-24-2019

For the more experienced ...  Blush
Is it worth using "renderSection()" instead of just "echo view()"?

It makes more sense to use a template with renderSection() and echoing only one view in the controller than having to echoing a view for the header, then your content, then the footer, etc.

Is it possible to cache the layout? Example: cache($this->extend('layouts/layout_site'))

<?= $this->extend('layouts/layout_site') ?>
<?= $this->section('content') ?>
<h1>Hello World!</h1>
<?= $this->endSection() ?>

You can cache the whole page with $this->cachePage($n);

Yes. Very good cachePage(). But it caches the whole page. And it works only within methods.
I wanted the cache only in $this->extend() which would be the layout.
