  • My visual editor and media up loader are not working. I am going through the steps in the post about problems that seemed to result from the recent 3.5 update. Would you please tell me how to ” flush any caching plugins”. Thank you.

  • The first thing you need to determine is whether or not you have any caching plugins installed and activated.

    Go into the admin side and go Plugins -> Installed Plugins. Look for anything that has the word “cache” or “caching” in the title. If the caching plugin is activated, look for a settings link either right there in the Description column, or in Settings. Usually, there is a tab called “Content” with a button or buttons to clear the current content of the cache or just a button somewhere in the settings to clear the cache.

    If you don’t have a caching plugin loaded and activated, you can skip that step.

    I had one (a caching plugin) but I deleted it. Could there be any residual effects from the deleted plugin? Also, will all caching plugins have the word “cache” or “caching” in the title? Thank you.

    I’m not certain, but I suspect there could be residual effects if the caching plugin put something in your .htaccess to do its thing. The ones I’ve used defaulted to using PHP methods or database methods for caching though. I recommend checking the documentation for the caching plugin you had to see if there’s anything regarding uninstalling it completely.

    It does look like most of them have the word “cache” or “caching” in them, but there are lots of them, so I can’t say they all do.

    Thank you.
