Support » Plugin: WP Super Cache » mod rewrite rules making admin section inoperable (404)

  • Installed latest version of wp-super-cache on my 3.1.2 wordpress, tried to configure the highest level of caching which is the mod rewrite method of redirects to static html pages. Here is the problem:

    I got it working great, serving the static compressed pages. yeh! But – it ONLY works when the wp-super-cache rewrite rules are ABOVE the wordpress permalink rewrite rules.

    The whole admin section is rendered either invisible, or it can’t find itself, and all admin pages give out a 404.

    The Supercache rules are supposed to be above the WordPress rules. I’m not sure why the admin area doesn’t work however. Perhaps it’s some other modification to the .htaccess file you’ve made?

    This is slightly different, but any ideas why when I save and update a page or post it isn’t displaying properly when I refresh. Often it is showing the old content.

    I have WP Super Cache.

    It seems to update for me when I log out of WordPress.

    Any ideas.

    Aaron – I don’t know why, but if you disable caching for known users on the Advanced settings page those pages won’t be cached for you (as a logged in user) and you won’t see this problem.
