    Is there a way how to access flushing link to editor role?

    Currently, only admin users can purge the cache. But I would need to grant this capability to editor role too.

    I am using User Role Editor but there’s no settings like that.

    Thank you in advance.

    Hello @tomdux

    Thank you for your inquiry and I am happy to assist you with this.
    Unfortunately, there is no option in W3 Total Cache to make the purge Cachee available for users with Editor roles in your WordPress.

    However, W3 Total Cache is built with a trigger to purge the cache when there is an update of a page in Performance>Page Cache>Purge Policy. This means that if you users make and save a change to a page on your website the cache will be flushed.

    Marko, thank you for your reply.

    In fact, I don’t need availability of “purge cache” link for other roles than admin but plugin caches category pages (archives) and I can’t reach their purging when post is edited/created.

    In Purge policy section, I tried this setting:
    Additional pages: “category” … doesn’t work

    In General section, I tried disable/enable this setting:
    (checkbox) Cache feeds: site, categories, tags, comments … doesn’t work

    Category pages are cached until manual “Purge cache” or their expiring.

    Problem occurs at my local and on production site too.

    Any hint, please?

    Hello @tomdux

    Thank you for the information.
    You can try enabling the following in the Purge Policy:
    Post comments pages
    Post author pages
    Post terms pages
    and also if archived:
    Daily archive pages
    Monthly archive pages
    Yearly archive pages
    Thanks!
