[resolved] How long do changes to sites take to update? (8 posts)

    Hi all,

    I have recently taken over running a multi-site blog, and I'm a bit of a novice so was hoping you could help me.

    Please can you advise how long it takes for changes to sites to update? I added some widgets to the side menu on a number of our pages yesterday. The changes show on my computer, but when I access the website on other computers or on an ipad, the changes don't show.

    Is it just that the changes take a while to update or is it something I've done wrong?

    Thanks

    Fiona

    All updates should take place immediately. However, this may not be reflected on the sites if you are using caching plugins.

    Thanks Esmi,

    To be honest, I have no idea if we're using caching plugins or not. Only started running the blog last week, so still getting to grips with things!

    If we are, do you know what the solution is?

    Thanks!

    You could try flushing the cache on any caching plugins.

    After a bit of googling and some research it appears we do not have any caching plugins (at least from what I can tell!). Could there be another reason why the updates have not gone live on any other computers?

    Thanks again for your help!

    Is your local network serving cached pages?

  7. Of note, CloudFlare and Varnish are considered caches too :)

    Hi,

    Thanks for your help. It appears that the changes have gone live now, which is good news! Although its taken a good 3/4 days for this to happen...so once I have a bit of a better idea of what to do I'm going to try sort out the caching plugins!

    I may be back on here with more questions soon! haha
