Jetpack/Photon clear cache feature and progressive jpegs ... (1 post)

    The lack of an ability to clear Photon's cache is crippling it it in a significant way for some of us... I just went through converting all my site's images (a lot) to progressive jpegs from baseline jpegs... I did it as a batch with the Prizm-Image plugin and it worked perfectly...

    In order to get those new images into my site I had to deactivate Photon, because it was still putting the old ones in... I guess I could have gone through and changed all of the id/names and then reinsert them into the various pages, but that's nuts, and even more especially so in that I had just saved such a huge amount of time with the Prizm plugin... Plus it'd just leave all those old images up there in the clouds "forever," so to speak... Which seems sort of nuts on it's own...

    There seems to be a lot of increasing calling to go to progressive images from a lot of different directions including places like google, so it is likely more folks are going to run into this problem.

    The need to be able to clear the cache so it can restore itself seems to have been under discussion in other threads, but I haven't gotten the impression the need is being taken all that seriously by the plugin's authors..?

    I do very much appreciate all the wonderful plugins available, including photon, and try to donate a bit here and there when I can. I'd love to be able to use photon some more, but cannot now,, until/unless a clearing of the cache ability is added...
