How to Clear Your Cache in WordPress (Step by Step)

How to Clear Your WordPress Cache: A Step by Step Guide
Herminia Pennell

I am still confused (sorry). My wordpress site is a fairly large ecommerce site, using woocommerce. I have 145 pages, 1200-plus products (lots of variables, etc.), a few hundred pictures (which have been optimized). I am afraid of the site running slow for people, although nobody has said anything in the month since I put the site live (I replaced my 12-year-old, never updated zen cart website with word press). Anyway, I have W3 cache and an optimizer, and other plugins on there, and I keep emptying the various caches. Am I slowing the site DOWN for other people, rather than speeding it up?

We have also seen websites using CloudFlare Always Online™ cache to create an illusion of being online, while the entire website is offline. In one case, the entire static content was there, but we couldn’t access videos and elements such as forms, search and so on.

Images are a little trickier as images on Twitter are cached based on the URL. This often causes images to not update when the above Card refresh technique is used. To workaround this issue, you can add an extra parameter at the end of your image URL so that the Twitterbot treats the image as a unique URL and re-fetches the image. You can rename your featured image in WordPress and re-upload it with a different file name.

With the cached content available, WordPress does not repeatedly need to go through the process of loading numerous PHP scripts, pulling database results from the DB, loading JavaScript, CSS and HTML files to the browser on every request. To make things faster, WordPress fetches the cached version of your web content from the caching plugin and loads them to the browser. This greatly reduces the load time of the website, and the number of server resources it could have used.

If you are developing your blog and making frequent changes, its better not to install any caching plugin at the moment or disable cache for this time. Just deactivate the caching plugin from dashboard > Plugins menu. You an activate it later on when you are done with your blog changes.
