Support » Fixing WordPress » Major delay when updating css and images

  • I have been making changes to css files, I used to see the changes right away but now I don’t.

    I have tried ctrl+f5 and I also use W3 total cache which I’ve tried updating whilst it’s disabled but that doesn’t help either. Neither does using empty all caches with that plugin.

    The same applies for images, I have been reuploading them via ftp and the changes have yet to be seen on my website. Some of the changes are taking hours.

    Any suggestions?

    According to who is hosting – your host is cloudfare. Don’t they provide caching of your site? I can’t remember, but it seems like these guys specialize in this.

    I would contact the host and see if there’s something that needs to be done in your cpanel or something to clear the cache.

    I was using cloudflare as a cdn. I have now removed this service and my host is Go Daddy. I’m still having the same problems

    Godaddy have told me that my site has too many requests and is too large, I’ve no idea what else to do.

    I noticed that changing to super cache actually made my site a lot quicker rather than Total cache. I do like total cache better though due to the minify settings, but I’m wondering why this plugin is slowing my site down?

    I’m no technical expert in this area, so this is just informal info

    But with w3tc on godaddy, I could never get it working properly. I’m not sure if it was user error, or some server configuration thing on Godaddy

    I switched hosts, and w3tc began to work very well for me – it may just be that certain cache setups behave better with certain server setups

    Thanks for the information. Which host did you switch to?

    I have been getting 60 second load time on my site and I’ve tried everything. I’m getting frustrated not knowing what else to do.

    I had many issues with Godaddy – I usually attributed it to the fact that I really have no idea what I’m doing when it comes to server stuff. On Godaddy, I just could not get any caching to work properly. I’d get errors, or my performance would actually seem to get worse

    I’ve moved to Bluehost, w3tc set up easily and works, I use cloudflare as well. I don’t feel the hosting is ideal yet, but I think part of that is that 1 of my sites is probably at the top end of what should be on a shared host.

    NOTE: I’m not endorsing any of these hosts or claiming any one is better, just providing details. I’ve certainly not tried enough hosts to be able to speak authoritatively to their benefits

    I decided to go with Max CDN and see if that helps. I am still using W3 Total Cache but I am still having issues with load time. I receive a F for first time byte and A for everything else.!/vAS3NkW97/

    How did things work out?
