I think it is all in the title. I have the Page Cache settings still set to ‘defaults’ for my installation, meaning I’ve never really tinkered with them until today.
Under the “Purge Policy: Page Cache” section of the Page Cache page, I have under “Specify the pages and feeds to purge when posts are created, edited, or comments posted.”
Below that, under “Specify the feed types to purge:”
all checked (only rss2 was checked by default, I added the others in troubleshooting)
yet publishing a new post or editing an existing post (in the most recent 10 posts, which is also the “Purge Limit” setting on the same settings page) does NOT clear cache, and I can NOT see the changes in a new/incognito browser window until I manually click to Purge Cache in w3 total cache, THEN the changes show up, but NOT until it is done manually.
how is it possible to get this working the way you describe, and have the cache purged automatically when creating a new post or editing an existing one?January 17, 2022 at 11:38 am #46988Marko VasiljevicKeymaster
Thank you for reaching out and I am happy to assist you with this.
Can you please share the screenshot of the Purge Policy settings in W3 Total Cache?
Just to make sure I understand correctly, Once you update or publish a new post, the cache is not cleared and you cannot see the latest post published or edited?
I’ve tried t replicate the issue, however, every time I make edits or publish a new post, the cache is cleared and new content is visible.
What is the Page Cache Method you are using?
Thanks!January 17, 2022 at 12:29 pm #46994nickGuest
Page Cache method is “Disk: Basic”
When publishing new content, it IS visible on the website itself, but changes are NOT visible in the RSS feed, which is still displaying a cached copy — that is until I manually purge the “Page Cache” in w3, then it shows up in the RSS feed as expected. It’s the manual part I don’t think I should have to do…
I would provide a screenshot confirming the settings I’ve already stated are checked/enabled, but there is no way to upload a screenshot on this forum. So I guess unless you can provide a method of getting that to you, you’ll just have to take my word for it.January 17, 2022 at 12:37 pm #46996Marko VasiljevicKeymaster
Thank you for the clarification.
You can use Imgur to upload images and share them here.
I’ll make sure to test this and get back to you. Just to confirm, you have also enabled the option “Cache feeds: site, categories, tags, comments” in Page Cache general?

Sure thing, here are pics to confirm my settings: https://imgur.com/a/h6xOWvB
