Purge Policy for home.php and custom Posts page (2 posts)

    Hello,

    We're having some trouble with new Posts showing up on our Home Page and Blog Page.

    -We are using a custom theme with home.php for the home page and a custom page template containing our loop (newsEvents.php) for the Posts page.
    -Our newsEvents.php page template is assigned to a Page called News & Events, which displays our latest Posts.
    -Our Home Page pulls the 3 latest Posts and displays them on the Home Page.
    -In our Reading settings, 'Front Page Displays' is set to 'Latest Posts'.
    -We're using the basic default W3TC settings for Page Cache, Database Cache, and Browser Cache. Under Page Cache > Purge Policy the following are checked: Home page, Post page, Blog feed, and rss2.

    When we create new Posts, they do not show up on either the Home page or the News & Events page. When we edit existing Posts, the changes are not showing either.

    We suspect our Home Page, Post Page, and Blog Feed are not being Purged due to our somewhat unique setup (home.php & newsEvents.php). We would like the default, auto-purge policy to function properly whenever a Post is created / edited, while still being able to cache the Home Page and Posts Page.

    What are we missing?

    Thanks,
    Aaron

    Latest version has support for static front page and separate post page purging. Try it out.
