  • Resolved WayneFusco


    Good Morning,

    So I have been doing some minor edits to the page noted above. I began to notice that text and images I was adding to the page were not showing up when I viewed the website in a different browser. then, somehow (I am guessing some publishing issuse) things were not in the editor but where still showing on the web.
    Web >>
    Backend >>

    Web >>
    Backend >>

    Event the font reverted back but its still Verdana on the web.

    I was using Total Cache but I have disabled it.

    I am not getting any errors when I publish and not other site is displaying this behavior.

    Because I own the server the site is running on, I even went as far as to reboot the server.

    I am at a total loss and now need some help..

    Thanks in advance

    There may be a couple different things going on which are confusing the issue. They are all CSS related though. Primarily, you cannot always rely upon the post editor to accurately portray all CSS rules. How well it does so is theme specific. You need to use the post preview feature to see what your page will actually look like. Even then, there can be rare situations where the preview is also not accurate.

    I don’t know about Total Cache, but at least one caching plugin still partially impacts the content served when it is deactivated, it requires complete removal through the plugins screen. In any case, all caching plugins should have a flush function to clear the cache and force WP to fully regenerate a page without the need to deactivate. Also, some caching plugins have an option to never serve cached files to logged in admin users. Check through the Total Cache dedicated support forum if it offers such a feature.

    Depending on server configuration, CSS files used by your browser can be aggressively cached locally. You may need to flush your browser cache in order to see the effects of the latest CSS files served.

    Well it wasn’t a cache issue at all – I had 2 pages with the same name and didnt realize it.

    Thanks for your help – while I was investigating what you asked, I realized the duplicate page.

    You’re welcome. That’s very strange that WP allowed two pages with the same name. It is supposed to append a number to the page slug when one already exists. For example, this is the 29th forum topic titled “Cache Issue”, its slug is cache-issue-28.

    If WP is still allowing duplicate titles, there is still something wrong with your site. Whether it’s worth tracking it down or not depends on the likelihood of it happening again.
