Support » Plugin: WP Super Cache » [Plugin: WP Super Cache] Pages don't seem to update with super cache on

  • Hello.

    Installed the plugin and turned it on. Looked at a page on the website and decided to change the name of a link in the links section. The name was changed to something else.

    On immediately going back to the page the name change does not show up. That sort of makes sense if it is serving a cached page from before the link name was changed.

    What makes the page show the changes? Is there some command that has to be issued to make the cache page regenerate after each change?

    I need the pages to update immediately like it did before the plugin was installed so changes can be reviewed and continued if necessary.

    Unfortunately changes to links don’t invalidate the cache, you’ll have to do that manually. You should probably keep the supercache admin page open and clear it there, or don’t cache for known users so you see a fresh page while logged in (and testing stuff).

    I noticed that of all the browsers I test with (even if I set them up not to “cache” web pages) Chrome, Firefox, and Safari really don’t update very well…

    I even added the no-cache meta statements to the header as a work-around `<meta http-equiv=”Pragma” content=”no-cache” />
    <meta http-equiv=”Expires” content=”-1″ />
    <meta http-equiv=”cache-control” content=”no-store” /> `

    with no luck…

    I have been logging onto my server and manually deleting the meta, and cached pages to force Chrome, Firefox, and Safari to read the newest page…

    Any ideas?

    Those headers affect browser caching, not caching on the server (completely different). You’ll have to clear the cache as I suggested above when you change links.
