Smart Slider 2
[resolved] Cache (4 posts)

    I noticed when I did a backup of my site that SmartSlider2 has built a lot of cached files. Do I need all of these. There is a ton of them. Is there something in the program that references them or can I delete them. Perhaps there are so many from learning my way through the interface.

    Smart Slider 2 build up the Js and the CSS files into one file to speed up the serving of these resources. This behavior used on the admin interface too. This is why you might see multiple files.
    So the answer for your question is yes, you can empty those folders(Also you can clear this cache in your WordPress admin/settings/Nextend settings/Clear cache button). The Smart Slider will regenerate the necessary files again when it shows.

    Note: There is an exception for this process. When you are using full page caching with some other plugins, you might need to clear that cache too. If you just empty our cache folder and you have full page cache, when the page loads, it served from the full page cache and Smart Slider not initialized, so cache is not regenerated.

    What do you mean by "full page caching"? I'm trying to find how to clear that via google and I can't find any clear procedures.
