Support » Plugin: W3 Total Cache » How to purge cache for editor

  • Resolved SJW


    I have a website where we have a user with editor role who adds new blogs to the website.
    Problem is that every time he adds a blog it never shows because of W3TC.

    I now have 2 choices:

    1. Make him an administrator so he can clear the cache himself
    2. Turn off caching so there is no caching issues when he posts

    Is there any way that an editor can clear the cache after posting a blog?

    Hello @whitsey

    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 Cache 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.
    Make sure to also additionally enable:

    Post comments pages
    Post author pages
    Post terms pages

    I already have this turned on but I will add the 3 you recommend and the front page to see if that helps.
