How can I clear my WP site's cache? (7 posts)

    Hi (I am new to WP),

    I recently created a new WP site (using Coller pro theme) and imported my blogger blog. There have been many changes to the site and I have added many plugins, the appearance of some of these is not as expected. I wanted to clear my site's cache to see if I can fix the problem! (Just to be clear I want to clear the site's cache, not my browser cache (have already done that)). I do not have a cachee plugin. I did a google search and found an option to make a slight coding change in a php file but the code I was to chagne was not available in that file (it was an old forum).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    My website is http://sciencewows.ie/

    WordPress by itself does not have a caching option. You would need a caching plugin or a service like Cloudflare.

    Did you make a change to your site and you are not seeing when you view your website in your browser?

    Hi Lorenzo,

    Thanks, I can see changes to site alright - the problem is more that I am having issues with the appearance of some plugins etc that should be supported by the theme I am using. It was suggested that I should clear my site cache... it is not a browser issue because I have cleared that and tried other browsers. I will add a caching plugin.

    A cache plugin will probably not solve the issues you have with the plugins. What plugins do you have problems with? Can you provide a link to page where these problems take place?

    Thanks keesiemeijer,

    There are a number of little anomalies but here is one example...http://sciencewows.ie/blog/fun-friday-rubber-band-experiments/

    the comments plugin is Jetpack but does not appear as on most sites (no box around where you write the comments); the comment luv button appears squashed compared with other, even the profile images of those who have commented seem larger and sometimes off the page. I have checked with other bloggers to confirm that they use the same plugins and the appearance is quite different on their sites.

    The border around the textarea is removed by a css rule in your theme's stylesheet. Try activating jetpacks custom css module and add this rule:

    #respond textarea {
       border: solid 1px #eee;


    It seems the comment luv plugin is not compatible with the jetpack plugin:

    Ask if there's a workaround here:
