WordPress 101: Clearing your cache after a website update
What is "cache" and why do I need to clear it?
When you visit a website your computer will save some of it in a folder so that when you visit that website again it won't need to download everything all over again. This makes the website load faster and saves data. Usually the caching process works flawlessly and you won't even notice except that your favorite websites load more quickly.
However, when you make an update to your website you may not see those changes as the cache is still showing what your website looked like before the updates. We need to clear the cache so that the website (and your changes to it) are all downloaded anew.
