    I don’t know if it’s just my Internet provider or if it’s a Genesis issue, but I’m getting older versions of my site. For example, while testing for plugin incompatibility, I’m sometimes (more often than not over the past few days) getting previous versions of the site (where the recently deactivated plugins are active), even after clearing the computer’s cache and restarting the computer. It’s hard to test whether there are any plugin incompatibilities this way. Anyone else finding this problem? I’m trying to isolate why my slider isn’t working and can’t figure out which plugin it is!

    Hi,
    After looking at your site, I believe it’s not Genesis nor your host. I’ve run into the same problem recently with a couple of my own sites. You have Super Cache, which is utterly nifty, but I’ve found that while making changes and testing it gives me a great big headache. It’s tricky – I’ll be making changes, testing, everything looks great. I think the cache may have an awareness of a logged-on admin user. Then I fire up another browser, and no changes are visible whatsoever. Days later, they may show up. :-)

    I have a quick thing to try – Settings…. WP Super Cache… Contents tab…. Delete Cache. That should give the site a good purge. Then you could open up another browser, or something on another device, and see if your changes are there. That is my best guess as to what’s happening with your site changes.

    I am actually going to start shutting off the cache while making changes to any site with that plugin!

    Best, Dave

    Thanks, Dave! I think it’s working now…maybe (LOL)… By the way, any suggestions for cache settings?

    Glad it’s working!

    That’s a big question. :-) I don’t fiddle with settings too much, because even as geeky as I am, I do not spend my days wondering about cache garbage collection and such things. :-)

    It’s also a bit dicey to recommend advanced settings, because every host works differently, and also some plugins will not play well with cache plugins.

    So I’d suggest staying with the “Easy” tab and just setting “caching on” there. What do I do? I do the Advanced tab, check “use mod_rewrite”, and in some cases, way below that I might check “clear all cache files when Page or Post is updated”. Beyond that I mostly leave it alone unless something’s off.

    Cheers, D
