FAQ

Q: What is “Disable Caching?” used for

A: Soliloquy uses transient cache to cache the slide data. This option will disable it which is useful for users who use custom queries (i.e related posts, ignore current post). So if you are using a custom query for your slider, you may want to enable this feature.
