    I made a minor change to my theme. I changed one of the colors. I hit the update button and it tells me the changes were made, but when I view the site, no changes show up. I tried switching to another theme and made color changes and the same thing happened, No changes. What am I doing wrong? Please help me.
    Thanks,
    Julie

    Disable any WordPress cache plugins and clear your browser cache.

    Disable the plugin on your dashboard plugins page or delete it from your plugins folder. I don't know how to clear any cache it generated (I don't use one of these plugins), but check its included read me file or look on the plugin creator's site for instructions.

    Disable any WordPress cache plugins

    If you're using a caching plugin:

    admin/plugins/tick/deactivate

    clear your browser cache.

    Firefox: tools/clear private data/cache/clear private data now

    IE: tools/internet options/browsing history-delete/temporary internet files/delete files

    I know how to clear the cache on firefox, but I still don't understand how to clear the cache on wordpress. I looked at my plugins on my dashboard and I do not have one for caches. There is a WordPress cache on my FileZilla. Sorry, I am new to this.

    Help yourself - you found all the necessary info:
    a) no cache plugins
    b) kill/delete that cache thing you have found on the server via FTP (it is NOT on your filzella - that's just a tool to connect you to your host server -, it is on your server).

    I looked on my Cpanel and I do not see a cache folder. I'm looking in the file manager. Am I looking in the right place?

    I am confused. You just said above:
    There is a WordPress cache on my FileZilla.
    Since nothing is on "your filzilla" I assumed you were seeing it in your WP installation on your host server and suggested to delete it in the same way you saw it - via your FTP client called filezilla.

    If you have FTP access you never need to go to cPanel to work with files.

    There is a Wp Cache on my Filezilla, but I thought you said:
    "b) kill/delete that cache thing you have found on the server via FTP (it is NOT on your filzella - that's just a tool to connect you to your host server -, it is on your server)."

    I am the one that's confused.

    There is nothing ever on your FileZilla. On any Filezilla.

    What you see in/through the Filezilla (which a FTP client) is either on your computer or on the host's server.

    So how do I clear it thru my Host's server. I am at the cpanel in the file manager and I am looking for cache. So far, I do not see anything.
    Thanks

    You really need to improve your reading skills. I already answered all your questions.

    Wow,
    That's not very nice. Maybe you aren't too clear.

    Coollist, it's YOU that's unclear. First of all, you were never told to clear a cache plugin. You were told to disable it if you had one. You can't "clear" plugins. Log in to your admin panel (your wordpress admin), go to plugins, and if you have a caching plugin disable it, clear your BROWSERS cache, and check if you can see the changes made to your theme.
