WordPress - How to view your website without caching

Sometimes you need to see your website without using any caching mechanism. In this article, we will demonstrate how you can achieve that.


1 - Try to open a page in private mode

Most of the web browsers give their users the option to browse the website in private mode. When you are using this option, your browser does not use any caching mechanism. This means you're visiting the latest modifications on your website as a new user. Now the question is how to use that option:

Google Chrome Incognito Mode

Firefox Private Mode

Safari Private Mode

Opera Private Mode


2 - Hard Refresh

Hard refreshing means force the browser to clear all saved data for the current website and load all the resources from server.

W3 Total Cache plugin 

1- Log into the WordPress Dashboard
2- Move your mouse over Performance, then click Dashboard
3- Now click on "empty all caches"


WordPress Super Cache plugin

You need to visit the Settings » WP Super Cache page and click on the ‘Delete Cache’ button.


4- Deactivate CDN services 

Some users use CDN services like Cloudflare or MaxCDN. Based on the service you are using there are plenty of tutorials that explain how to deactivate the service temporarily. Please make sure the CDN service is not active when you want to check your website without cache.
