Clearing the cache in your Wordpress

If you added or changed CSS or Javascript code and you don't see any changes in your website front-end, this means you need to clear the cache.

Q: Yes, but what cache do I need to clear?

It depends on what plugins you have installed in your Wordpress website, but generally speaking:

  • You need to clear the cache of the browser (Whatever your website has been built on)
  • You need to clear the cache of your Wordpress cache plugins.

Q: I'm a web designer, how do I clear the cache of my browser?

For Chrome check out this video. For Firefox just hint CTRL+F5 on Windows and Linux. On Apple hint Apple+R.

You need to do this every time you change CSS or Javascript code on your website.

 

Q: I cleared the cache of the browser but nothing changed

 

As mentioned above, you probably need to clear the cache of your Wordpress cache plugins. This depends on what cache plugin you have installed (For example Super Cache).

You need to go to your cache plugins settings and click on a "Purge Cache" or "Delete Cache" button. You need to do this every time you change CSS or Javascript code on your website.

Q: I understand now, but what about my customers?

This depends on their browser settings and on their browser type (Firefox, Chrome, etc), Most of the time just restarting the browser would do the work for them. It also depends on the expiration date of the cookies you sent to your visitor browsers.
