Sometimes changes published to a website don’t show up immediately. Our caching servers can take 5 - 10 minutes to update. If you're still not seeing updates after that time, clearing your browser and/or WordPress cache can help force the changes to show for you.

Check Site Settings Blog Tab

If your published changes are not showing up, first check the site settings in your account and check if your domain is set under the blog tab. If the domain is not set, set the domain and publish. If the domain is set there or setting the domain did not help the changes show, move onto the next step.

Clear Browser Cache

You may also want to try clearing your browser cache in order to force your published changes to show.

Google Chrome (Desktop)

  1. From the “Menu” button in the upper-right corner of the Chrome window, choose “More Tools” > “Clear browsing data…“

  2. On the window that pops up, click the “Clear Browsing Data” button

For Safari reference here.

Flush Wordpress Cache (Advanced Blog only)

If you have a Showit blog, flushing your WordPress cache will generally help changes show up right away. To do this:

💡A manual flush of the Wordpress cache is only available to Advanced Blog users. Users on a Basic Blog level may need to wait 24 hours for updates to existing pages to appear.

  1. Login to your WordPress admin (generally located and http://yourdomain.com/wp-admin)

  2. On the top menu bar, mouse-over the “Managed WordPress” text and click “Flush Cache“

Your blog may look a little different depending on which of our servers you are on, here is the other method for flushing cache in your blog. 

In the left sidebar of WP mouse-over WP Engine and then choose General Settings.

Once in the general settings click the Purge All Caches button as seen here.
