Clearing Browser Cache

How Do I Clear Browser Cache If I Can’t See Updates

If clearing cache within WordPress does not work (sometimes browser cache can become corrupt or unstable) client browser cache can be cleared manually. Browsers cache a copy of a website or webpage you visit so the site or page can load from your computer instead of downloading the webpage each time you visit. This makes the website load instantly. This works fantastic until you are expecting a change in the website. To fix this issue all you have to do is clear the web browser cache. A common shortcut is to press the F5 key on your keyboard. This will load any new changes that the browser detects.

You can also press Ctrl & F5 at the same time to bypass the browser cache and download the entire web page again.

If you have an Apple computer or happen to run Linux, the keyboard commands are similar:

  • Windows: Ctrl + F5
  • Mac/Apple: ? + R
  • Linux: F5

Refresh Your Cache has an excellent set of instructions for clearing cache for all major browsers.
