Interested please, if anyone has any suggestions. Images and url links, on my homepage, are only showing when I’m logged IN to my site admin, within a min or two of logging out, they don’t show anymore. I’ve cleared cache etc but still no luck, I’m speaking with my host, to see if we can resolve. But would welcome suggestions from others. Thank you.January 22, 2016 at 9:17 am #167385robmac
issue resolved – it appears to have indeed been the cache.January 22, 2016 at 10:00 am #167386robmac
OK, just to update. The problem returned in most browsers I tested, so, I again switched OFF WP Fastest Cache [WPFC] and am leaving it off for now. The site now loads and loads faster on all major browsers tested.
WPFC has served me well on multiple sites, but for some reason, seemingly not this one.
Is there a fundamental problem, in NOT using a cache on a site?
I’ve seen online advice, suggesting sites which use CloudFare [mine DOES] do not necessarily need caching? If it’s best however to use a cache, suggestions for an easy to set-up alternative to WPFC please? Thank you.January 22, 2016 at 10:41 am #167402TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
Caching plugins can be tricky – it all depends on your host.
If you’re using Cloudflare, a caching plugin isn’t necessary as CF caches all of your static content for you.
If your site is fast without the caching plugin, I think you’re better off just leaving it deactivated 🙂January 22, 2016 at 10:11 pm #167462robmac
Thanks Tom – yes, I’ll leave cache off, problem is, I came back to my site a few hrs later and the problem was – back – images [and links] only loading/active, when I’m signed in to admin. to you have any suggestions please as to what I should be looking at in this type of situation? Thanks again.January 22, 2016 at 10:14 pm #167464robmac
I do note, I only de-engaged the cache and didn’t yet deactivate the actual cache plugin, so that may have been the issue – it’s now deactivated and I’ll delete it completely.January 23, 2016 at 12:09 am #167480TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
Make sure to flush the cache before deactivating it.
Any chance you can link me to your site so I can see if I can see the images?
