Support » Plugin: Comet Cache » Style sheet not downloading

  • Resolved delawaregrad

    I have two sites that I added your plugin to; I left the settings as they were. Within a few days, both clients called me to say the site was scrambled. I cleared the cache and it fixed the issue – it had looked like the style sheet didn’t download, but only on one or two pages. Nothing had been added to the pages recently, so this seems weird. Before I remove the plugins and try another, I thought I would ask.

    -If any changes are made and the Clear Cache button is clicked, is that all that’s needed? And can I click it on any of the pages to clear the complete cache?
    -Is there a reason if nothing changes, why a page doesn’t download properly?

    thanks !

  • Maybe I just don’t get how this works. I used the standard settings and click the clear cache when I made some updates. For the second time, one of my clients emailed me that two of the pages were scrambled again. I had added this to 3 sites, but I think I’ll delete them.

    I see the same problem when Beaver Builder is used in conjunction with Comet Cache.

    Thanks for the information. I use Avada which uses their own builder, maybe that’s along the same lines. I wonder why, though.

    Many of the visual editor and page builder plugins that I’ve seen for WordPress have their own caching systems built-in that store pre-generated CSS/JS files either inside the cache directory or inside the uploads directory. That often causes problems when there’s another caching plugin enabled (it’s not a problem unique to Comet Cache).

    Unfortunately this is something the page builder plugins would need to take into consideration. It’s possible they’re changing their own internal cache without hooking into actions that would normally cause the installed caching plugin to clear its entire cache. That might result in a cached page referencing a now-deleted CSS/JS file that the page builder plugin had cached, thereby causing visual elements on the page to look broken until the cache is manually cleared.

    Comet Cache hooks into dozens of actions throughout WordPress Core to listen for various events that would warrant an automatic clearing of the cache, things like save_post and edit_post. It also hooks into various actions that fire when themes are changed, updated, etc. A plugin that creates its own cache should be firing one of these well-known hooks so that anything else (such as Comet Cache or another page caching plugin) that listens for those important events knows that it should also clear its cache.
