Transients are awesome

Transients are awesome, but there are some important things to watch out for:

  • Transients are a type of cache, not data storage
  • Transients aren’t always stored in the database, nor as options
  • Transients have a maximum age, not a guaranteed expiration
  • Transients can disappear at any time, and you cannot predict when this will occur
