Support » Plugin: W3 Total Cache » Flushing Cache Redirects to Homepage

  • Resolved kmmcita



    I have a new website with a strange issue: when i flush cache, a redirect takes me to the homepage (and cache is flushed). It doesn’t attach the “?w3tc_note=flush_all” to the current url as i see in my other websites it redirects to
    I want to understand this, because i’m experiencing a browser cache strange redirect in a particular situation that i need to debug. I suspect that the issue i’m experiencing is related to this behaviour with flush caching in some way.

    – What is the normal behaviour of this plugin?

    – If it’s normal, why it’s different in different websites?

    I have a VPS server with Plesk Panel updated version. I’m using apache with no nginx enabled. I have Sucuri CDN.
    My rewrite rules are simple, it’s only removing index.php from all urls (standard htaccess that plesk gave me)

    I’m using Page Cache, Object-Cache,Browser Cache, Opcode Cache, all in memcached where possibile.


    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hello @kmmcita,

    Sorry for the late response.
    When flushing cache do you click from top menu being on the homepage? If so – Please try to use w3tc dashboard page for flushing.

    Hooking into this thread, because the behaviour when flushing did change indeed.

    What I was used to, was that the current page would stay the current page (using topmenu performance > purge all caches). Now, I am being redirected to the W3TC Dashboard page.

    Unless I use Performance > Flush Current Page, then the URL changes to admin.php?page=w3tc_dashboard&w3tc_flush_current_page&_wpnonce=49d64b6cce

    with the notice “Page has been flushed successfully” and “Return”, but that page keeps loading and when I click “Return” I stay on the page (Return-link points at the same wpnonce URL).

    Wordpress 5.1.1 issue maybe?

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We are working on this and this will be fixed in future releases.
    Thank you for your patience.



    FYI – When I disable “Browser Cache” the redirect returns to working for me.
