    I've editited the triton lite theme on my website to my liking. It's perfectly alright when i view it as wp-admin. But when i log out and visit my website as a visitor. I do not see the changes reflecting in this view.

    1) I deleted disqus comment system.
    2) I changed the dimensions of the header image.

    This is seen when i log in as wp-admin, but not when i visit as a regular visitor. I tried deleting the cache and even visit from a different browser from a different network. I still have this problem. Can any one help?

    Do you have any plugins for development that might be hindering it?

    When disabling your cache plugin and you viewed it with your browser, did you just open it, or did you CONTROL-R (for PC) or Command-A (for Mac) reload it?

    Those commands tell the server to 'reget' everything and ignore what is browser cached.

    What i did was, after editing, cleared cache and reloaded the page. This was showing the changes that I have made (at this point I've been logged in as wp-admin). But when i log out and visit my website there were no changes reflecting.

    I tried another browser. I did the editing at home and so I came to work and tried from a pc here. Still no changes.

    About development plugins i do not know exactly what do you mean. Are those the plugins that will help in editing the code? I do not have any such plugins.

    There are some maintenance plugins that have a dev version available to work on while the live one is still active.

    Okay, now what you are saying reminds me of how page cache'ing works and is set for 'do not cache for logged in users'

    So, it could be possible that when you 'clear cache' that it's not actually doing it, wp-supercache is famous for having this happen.

    What I want you to do to check is I would like you to login that other browser and "view source" (right click the browser window area and click "view source") it will come up with the source of the site, the html and all that, the cache'ing information usually resides at the bottom of the source, can you find out if it's outputting a cache'd version?

    Ok the cache line is something like this

    <li id="wp-admin-bar-delete-cache" class="">Delete Cache <ul id="wp-admin-bar-top-secondary" class="ab-top-secondary ab-top-menu">

    I can't make the head and tail of it. Is there something wrong with it? What is it that you want me to change here. You might want to take a look at my website. http://www.thereddotman.com, Note that the changes which i have mentioned while creating this thread are not reflection when you browse it.

    1) I deleted disqus comment system.
    2) I changed the dimensions of the header image.

    If you view-source on the home page of your site then looked at the bottom it shows this:

    <!-- Dynamic page generated in 0.945 seconds. -->
    <!-- Cached page generated by WP-Super-Cache on 2012-06-21 16:31:28 -->
    <!-- super cache -->

    It shows that it is still being cache'd by wp-supercache.

    Tell me when happens when you turn off wp-supercache, do you see what you are supposed to see - the changes and all?

    I never tried that. You want me to deactivate the super cache? Or delete it?

    Just deactivate for the moment. Like I said it might be that wp-supercache is *not* clearing the cache when you click it.

    So disable it temporarily so you can see if it makes a difference.

    Hey it worked. I deactivated super cache and it looks perfect now. All changes are reflecting. The disqus is gone and the heade looks fine.
    Thanks so much frumph.

    Is this super cahe a bad thing? Should i delete this plugin?

    It's a good thing, it's just having an issue with deleting the cache. You need to take that up on the plugins support page.

    Also, you cannot just "delete" wp-supercache.. it embeds itself into a buncha areas. There's a whole uninstall procedure for it. First though you should contact the plugin author and ask him about the not deleting your cache.
