In anticipation of a big traffic spike, I set my WP-Super-Cache settings super high. Since then the site has been wonky, with two main problems:
a) Readers who commented frequently started getting 403 errors, for no apparent reason.
b) Pages that I had updated no longer refresh, no matter how many times I clear the cache. I'm not even seeing the "Edit" button on the page. I suspect this is happening because I added some pages to be directly cached by WP-Super-Cache.
I have since reset the plugin settings to default -- then when nothing happened I turned off caching -- and then I deactivated the plugin entirely. No dice -- readers still get the 403 errors, and I still can't see the updated pages. Do I need to uninstall the entire plugin and edit my root code?
Any help is appreciated -- thank you!
