Caching Affecting OptimizePress and Thrive

3 replies

I have found out that Varnish Cache is responsible for all the hours of changes I did on my site... disappearing!

I once used a cache WP plugin and had problems updating my sites so I got rid ASAP.

But my host puts Varnish Cache on all new sites.

After a bit of research, it seems that many hosting companies put caching apps on millions of sites, without the site owner's permision.

I previously asked OptimizePress for a refund as I thought they were at fault. They obviously didn't know what the cause was.

Thrive Content Builder identified the cause as being Varnish Cache, and yet despite caching being common, they don't have a video on what to do about it.

My question is: How does everyone else cope?!

How common/rare is this a problem for people updating their sites?

I'm dyslexic so when I make changes to my sites, it takes me several hours if not days.

PS: I am NOT technical. If I have to access FileManager or FTP I break out in a cold sweat, and have to have a lie down
I did not understand a word of these two pages:

So please respond in laymans terms if possible.

thanks a lot

    hello bionictortoise
    the cache is an option to keep some details and files from a website on your own browser, that method is to load fast the website in the second visit, so if you want to refresh the browser and clean the cache you need to clear all history and cookies, but in wordpress let me be honest you should use w3 total cache plugin or wp super cache because they limit the cache for the website's administrator to make it easy for you to make and manage the website as you want, also if you have any experience you can access to .htaccess and put the necessary codes for cache.
    i really hope that i gived the right response for your issue

      Yes thanks, I would prefer a WP plugin that I can control rather than the hosting company doing it.

        Ok, then go with w3 total cache plugin; it's powerful and manage cache like a charm and it will fix the problem, many hosting companies have a default cache system but you can use your own if you can find you .htaccess file and change it codes to
        # BEGIN WordPress
        <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
        RewriteEngine On
        RewriteBase /
        RewriteRule ^index.php$ - [L]
        RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
        RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
        RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
        # END WordPress
        that code is default for wordpress and the w3 total cache plugin will implant specific codes to enhance your cache and more features
