Support » Plugin: WooCommerce Blocks » All Products block long term cached

  • Resolved BenAttenborough

    (@benattenborough)


    It seems like when using the “All Products” block the HTTP request made is cached. The problem is if we change the product names or pictures users won’t see the changes since the http request headers stay the same so the user receives a cached response instead of the updated data. If I go in and change something on the block itself like the number of columns or products to show then the request header changes and thus the cache is broken and new data is fetched. However if I go back and restore the old block settings then the old headers will be sent and thus the old response will be fetched. When product data changes there needs to be a way to bust the cache. Perhaps some parameter on the url would do it.
    Until then I think I’ll have to use the product shortcode instead which doesn’t seem to have these issues.

    Hey there!

    Could you please share a copy of your site’s System Status? You can find it via WooCommerce > Status. Select “Get system report” and then “Copy for support”.  Once you’ve done that, paste it here in your response.

    Thanks for that! What I’d recommend here is to see if this is caused by either a conflict with your theme or with another plugin.
     
    The best way to determine this is to:

    • Temporarily switch your theme to Storefront
    • Disable all plugins except for WooCommerce
    • Repeat the action that is causing the problem

    If you’re not seeing the same problem after completing the conflict test, then you know the problem was with the plugins and/or theme you deactivated. To figure out which plugin is causing the problem, reactivate your other plugins one by one, testing after each, until you find the one causing conflict. You can find a more detailed explanation on how to do a conflict test here.

    @benattenborough we haven’t heard back from you in a while, so I’m going to mark this as resolved – if you have any further questions, you can start a new thread.
