Just wondering if anyone could help me out.
I\'m currently running with Flavor and have recently installed WP Super Cache. Unfortunatley that throws all my post counts up in the air.
1) Anyone able to help a man out and let me know if there is a way of running WP Super Cache and having the post counts in Flavor show correctly?
2) I\'m on the verge of hitting the trigger on an Explicit purchase. Obviously I\'m going to come up with the same post counts issue so would things be okay with WP Super Cache and Explicit? If not, any ideas on what I could do to get round it?
Cheers for your help.
Which specific post counts are you referring to? Are you talking about on your dashboard where it lists how many posts are in your site? Or are you referring to the metrics like views, likes, and comments? Or is it perhaps ratings/reviews that you're referring to? Please specific so I can offer assistance, thanks.
Sorry. I mean the number of views that are shown in the Flavor theme, either on the frontpage or inside the individual article. They obviously don't like WP Super Cache!
*btw, just purchased Explicit. Looks a rather remarkable theme so congrats on that. I guess I'll have the same caching issues on there as in Flavor?
Thanks for your purchase! Yes, I think you would run into the same issues. Try the following and see if it at least causes the view counts to work. Try disabling database and object caching within the plugin settings but leave the browser and page caching turned on...
Don't suppose you know exactly where I should be looking in WP Super Cache in order to disable the database and object caching?
Not sure - in w3 total cache there are four caching panels one after the other on the front page of the settings: page, then object, then database, then browser. I don't know where they would match up in super cache exactly (or I suppose if it even has the same categories). I recommend asking the super cache dev - I'm sure they can point it out.
I looked and looked but couldn't see any options. Also got my host to look into it and they couldn't see a way either. May just bin it and run with W3 if the options are straight forward enough on there but will reach out to the dev first.
Yeah when in doubt definitely check with the plugin devs or at least their support/forums
To make WP super cache work with your your theme counts you need to
1. Go to Advanced
2. Scroll down at the bottom where you will see the following (Page cache options)
"Add here strings (not a filename) that forces a page not to be cached.
For example, if your URLs include year and you dont want to cache last
year posts, itâ€™s enough to specify the year, i.e. â€™/2004/â€™. WP-Cache
will search if that string is part of the URI and if so, it will not
cache that page."
3. You will Find Things like " wp-.*\.php" and "index\.php" by default
4. Add this string " /*/.+" (minus the quotes of course)
5. Save Stings and you are good to go
