  • Resolved Matija



    Site Homepage doesn’t get updated after publishing a new post. Old version of a Homepage is displayed and newer posts don’t show up. Is it possible to automatically refresh the relevant Homepage cache after publishing a new post. Now I have to do the process manually and purge all cache to make my new posts visible.

    Thank you.

    We are looking into this – thank you for the report.

    Are you publishing your posts in the ‘ordinary’ way? i.e. WP dashboard?


    @davidanderson Yes, posts are published through the WP dashboard.

    The problem is most pronounced on news website homepage where there are many posts displayed throughout different taxonomies. There are dozens of posts every day and latest ones are often not immediately visible to logged out users. There should be some kind of mechanism for purging homepage cache after new posts are published/updated.

    If I may suggest, there should be an option to purge cache for posts/pages individually. Now, if I’m not mistaken, the only option is to purge all cache which often isn’t necessary.

    Please try again with the just-released WP-O 3.0.7 – this should fix it.




    Homepage is now getting updated with new posts. Thank you for resolving the issue!

    In the meantime I encountered another similar problem. Archive pages don’t get updated right away. So, if I publish/update post/page it would be great if that would also trigger purging of related taxonomy archives (categories, tags, or custom).

    @davidanderson Should I open a new issue for the archive pages problem described above?

    Apologies for the late reply.

    Are you still having this issue until now?


    Yes, there seems to be a problem with archive pages. Cache doesn’t always refresh on updates like publishing a new post, changing the title or excerpt for the existing one, changing the category or any other operation which should trigger cache refresh for archives. When I purge cache everything displays as expected.

    Any progress on this?

    I’m getting great results with your caching engine on a few simple sites.

    But without archive purging problem described above being resolved I can’t deploy to sites with dynamic content.

    Kind regards.

    Hi @matija80,

    We’ve recently added support for several things, including clearing the terms archives used on the updated post.

    We still need to add rules for the main blog archives.

    If you need to add custom rules, it can be done with a little bit of code, using the save_post action.

    Kind regards,


    Now it works as expected!

    Thank you very much for the great work!
