[Plugin: WP Super Cache] Delete Cache Button Problem

  • Hello

    Today i have updated my wp superchache plugin with 1.0 version.

    Plugin updated succesfully and when i try to use Delete Cache button i saw only “WP-Super-Cache” files deleted but “WP-Cache” files still on there and i did try everything (reinstall, deactivate-activate) but i didnt solve this problem.

    How can i fix this problem?

    If that’s the “Delete Cache” button on the admin bar then that’s the expected behaviour. It only deletes the supercache files for the current page.

    Same problem here with the main “Delete Cache” button in the Contents tab of plugin configuration (not just the admin bar)

    The only way to clear WP-Cache is to disable and re-enable compression. Going back to 0.9.9 fixes the problem

    Where can I download 0.9.9? I have exactly the same problem…

    Its main “Delete Cache” button under settings (Contents tab)!

    Same here.

    I think I know what the problem is. Those are wp-cache files placed there by the previous version of the plugin. To make things scale better those files are now placed in a blogs/blogurl.tld/ directory. On a multisite site you also have a “Delete Cache on all Blogs” button on that page which deletes those files and everything in the cache directory but unfortunately it’s not available on a single blog system.

    This problem will be fixed, but be assured that the cache is getting deleted, even if you can see them in the wp-content/cache/ directory.


    I had no previous version of the plugin installed. It’s the first time I installed a cache plugin on this website… 😀

    My frontpage was not updated until I disabled the cache so “but be assured that the cache is getting deleted” is not quite true in my case

    same here Donncha, i upgraded and “Delete Cache” no longer does the job – i go into cache directory by ftp to delete the still existant files – on a MU setup.

    i reverted back to version 0.999 as it deletes cache properly. i also had a problem with some css files working properly on new version.

    The development version has a fix for this. It’s on the same page as the previous version.

    Just wanted to say thanks for your hard work on this super useful plugin. The tone of some comments here make me feel that a few people seem to forget you are giving a lot of your time for this plugin and for free.

    Donncha, thanks for your efforts.

    Thanks, both of you. This weekend especially has been stressful!

    Replace all the old version until the new version is not completely functional. Do not bother man.
