RSS Cache Not Being Updated/Cleared Ver. 0.9.3 (6 posts)

    Having issues with the RSS feed cache not being updated or cleared after updating to the most recent version of W3TC.

    Checked Purge Policy settings and they are correct. Manually clearing all caches is not doing anything. If I turn off W3TC I see the current build of the feed. If I turn it back on I get a build which is several days old.

    Issues showing up on other sites on other servers at this point. It doesn't seem to be consistent when loading the feed with a web browser, but it's always broken when the feed is pulled via wget, rendering the feed useless for newsletters (like MailChimp).

    Dang, it looks like we're seeing the same RSS problem since upgrading to version W3TC 0.9.3...

    Does disabling "Cache feeds" under the Page Cache Settings do anything for you?

    I tried that but it didn't seem to make any difference.

    Trying to turn it off didn't do anything for us either!

    Instead it kept serving up the dated RSS feed, no help at all.

    What I had to do is manually go to the wp-content/w3tc/pgcache/feed/ directory and forcibly remove the stale files in there.

    Once that was done and W3TC was removed from the equation, the current RSS feed was refreshed and started being served again on its own... Hopefully it lasts once we add a new post.

    But of course the feed is no longer cached by W3TC now, so hopefully this gets fixed soon so we can reenable the caching.

    (BTW, did you recently upgrade from a much older version like 0.9.2.4? Wondering if our doing that might have anything to do with the appearance of this problem.)

    No, unless there is a problem with a new release, I keep all plugins up to date. W3TC was updated from the previous release, not an older one.
