How to Clear Your Cache in Elementor

Table of Contents

Elementor is a popular page builder that thousands of website owners are using. And with its vast features and ease of use, it’s no wonder why website builders trust it. However, just like any other tools, Elementor also has its downsides. One of which is the cache problem. A cache issue can cause inconvenience to your website, where any changes you make using Elementor can’t take effect. Fortunately, this problem is simple to resolve. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to clear the cache on Elementor so you can get back to working on your website without any more delays.

Step 1: Identify the Cache Issue

Before you can clear the cache on Elementor, you have to identify that the problem is likely caused by the cache. Suppose you make changes to an Elementor-built page or post, but the changes aren’t visible on the front end. In that case, it could be due to the cache issue. To confirm that this is the cause, you can try disabling any caching plugins temporarily or try log out from your WordPress site or open your site in incognito mode. Once you have confirmed that the issue is due to cache, you can proceed to the next step.

Step 2: Clear the Cache on Elementor

Elementor utilizes different types of cache, but most common ones to clear are the browser cache and global CSS. Clearing your browser cache forces web pages to update, and clearing global CSS helps get the latest version of your CSS. To clear your browser cache, open up your website in your preferred browser, then press CTRL + F5 on Windows or CMD + Shift + R on Mac, or you can open a new incognito window.

To clear the global CSS cache, go to your Elementor dashboard, and click on “Tools” on the left-hand menu. Then, click on “General,” and under the “Maintenance” tab, you should see the “Regenerate CSS” button. Clicking this button will regenerate Elementor’s CSS files and clear any cached files that may cause the issue.

Step 3: Clear Your Site Cache

While we’ve cleared the browser cache and global CSS cache, you may also want to clear your website’s cache. If you’re using a caching plugin like WP Rocket or W3 Total Cache, you can easily go to your plugin settings and purge the cache. Typically, you can go to the Performance tab, and you should see a button that says “Clear cache” or “Purge all caches.” Once you’ve purged the cache, you should see any changes you made in Elementor right away.

Step 4: More Advanced Clearing

If the standard methods don’t work, you can try more advanced clearing methods. You can try clearing the CDN cache if you happen to use a content delivery network or delete the entire server cache if it still doesn’t work. Clearing the server cache is not recommended since it can slow down your website’s performance, but if necessary, you can do it via the command line.

Step 5: Test your Website

Once you’ve cleared the cache, it’s imperative to test your website to ensure that the issue has been resolved. open your website in your browser or incognito mode, make sure you log out to view your site if you have any caching plugins enabled. Ensure that all the updates you did using Elementor are visible and that your website loads correctly without any errors.

Conclusion

Clearing the cache on Elementor is essential to ensure that your website loads correctly and your Elementor updates take effect. While a cache issue may slow down your website and impede any ongoing updates, knowing how to clear the cache can save you time and prevent issues in the future. The next time an Elementor cache issue crops up, follow the steps provided above and get your website back up and running in no time.
