Clearing your cache in WordPress can be something you may need to do from time to time when using a caching plugin to speed up WordPress. If you make changes to your WordPress site and don’t see the changes when visiting the updated page, you may need to clear your cache. This is because the caching plugin could still be showing the cached version of your page.

To force your WordPress site to show your most recent changes right away, you can delete the cache. Below are steps to clear the WordPress cache in both W3 Total Cache or WP Super Cache.

Clear WordPress cache with W3 Total Cache

If you are using the W3 Total Cache plugin for WordPress, this is how you clear the cache:

Log into the WordPress Dashboard
Hover over Performance, then click Dashboard



Click empty all caches



Clear WordPress cache with WP Super Cache

If you are using the WP Super Cache plugin, this is how you clear the cache:

Log into the WordPress Dashboard
Hover over Settings, then click WP Super Cache



On the WP Super Cache Settings page, click Delete Cache



Once you are done clearing your WordPress cache, you should see any recent changes that you published. The caching plugin should then cache the latest version of your page when the site is visited again.
