Support » Plugin: Content Mask » How to clear the cache?

    I have the download method enabled and facing cache issues.

    THe actual URL has the CSS with version at the end of url like

    abc.css?v=3.56

    and now the version has changed to 4.1 but the content mask plugin is still picking the old URL. Not sure how to clear this cache and get the latest URL.

    I tried deleting the URL’s and adding again, disabling cache and reducing cache time etc. But nothing worked.

    Any pointers please.

    Hi there, which version of Content Mask are you using? A few versions ago there was an issue with the cache not clearing, but it’s been fixed for quite a while.

    If you need to forcefully clear a cache, you have a few options:

    1) Go to the “Content Mask” admin page, go to the three dots on the right hand side of the masked page to pull up the sub-menu, and click “Refresh Transient”.

    2) Go to the actual “Edit” page for the page you have masked, and just click update. That should force a refresh.

    3) Add a query string parameter to the Content Mask URL. Change it from “example.com” to anything like “example.com?v=1”, or if you have a query string on the URL already, just add anything else “example.com?foo=bar&v=1”. That should treat it as an entirely new page and grab a fresh copy.

    Let me know if any of those don’t work!

    v1.8.1.5 is what I’m using.

    Option 1 did the trick.

    But it was not working with the earlier version of plugin. I updated the plugin and then did a ‘refresh transient’. Which worked now.

    Thanks
