I published a post but I / my readers don’t see it on the website

If you publish a post and it doesn’t seem to appear on your website, first check if you have a caching plugin activated. If yes, your website cache is probably outdated and needs to be cleared.

Look for a button or link like these:

Empty cache link for the W3 Total Cache plugin
Empty cache link for the W3 Total Cache plugin
Clear Cache button for the Quick Cache plugin

Click the clear cache button / link and you should now see the post on your site.

Please read our article Website Caching Basics for Non-Geeks for more information on what is caching and why you should implement it.
