    HG doesn't cache anything. Whatever problem you're having, it's on your end.

    Not a lot anyone can check without a domain name to look at.

    I don't see anything out of the ordinary, except that the w3c validator is choking on something in the head section - possibly because of a facebook div (that is duplicated down toward the footer). Div elements aren't allowed in the head section.

    It is vital when troubleshooting site problems (especially loading/display issues) that you completely delete your browser cache and cookies before every page reload.

    When you have a hard-to-find issue like this, many times it is necessary to deactivate ALL plugins, and revert to a known defect-free theme like a fresh copy of WordPress's TwentyTwelve, THEN make a change to see the effect.

    You have a ton of plugins, a lot of javascript from different sources. There could very well be a conflict in there that will take some effort to spot.

    HI Steve,

    Good that your issue is solved.
    w3c validator is very useful but if used wrong it created serve problems too.I also faced some condition some time ago.

    Hi Dan, deja vu, LOL.

    Just to chime in to reiterate what we discussed already in case anyone else has this issue....

    Some plugins write to the .htaccess file when activated. However, when you deactivate them, their htaccess rules are still present and may not be overwritten until you force a permalinks refresh or manually update the .htaccess file.

    For this reason, you may have deactivated a caching plugin, but you still cannot see updates to your site until you actually delete the plugin and refresh permalinks.

      Hi Scott,

      oh yes...as I say, you guys never sleep...

      To the others: I am user of Scott's Clickbump product and he is the mastermind behind their excellent user forums...

      Thanks again Scott for your help over there, I wish the new great Honeypot theme had been ready when I started the site... would love to have the Clickbump engine power that wordpress site...the themeforst template is slow, perhaps wouldnT have needed the cache plugin in the first place with the Honeypot pagespeed

      will find out soon...

      again, thanks for your help
