I have a WordPress client that we added a cache busting plugin, it works from time to time, but not 100% with everyone in their office.
They are now asking if I can put together a sample home page with cache busting in RW to see if this fixes it. They are continually asking how larger sites (Best Buy and Amazon (their examples) are handling this.
I have been using the RW “Generate Cache-Busting Links” in RW8, but every once in a while, a customer will tell me they are not seeing the latest updates. It happens for me on occasion as well with a website we update every week. It’s been much better since the RW “Generate Cache-Busting Links” was added to RW.
How do I ensure that cache-busting is 100%? Is that even possible? Is this tied to hosting at all @barchard? I know this particular client is using SiteGround with his WP site. I contacted SiteGround and they said with WP they use a server side cache that we have to empty out.
I figured before I sent out my RW example home page, I would make sure I covered all my bases and give them the most accurate information that I can.
