How to Clear Cache in Divi Theme

by Last Updated: Jun 26, 2020Blog, Divi theme

In this article, I’m going to explain how to clear Divi theme cache and why you may need to do it.

You may need to clear Divi cache if you are making changes on your Divi website and you can’t see these changes on your website when you check it. There can be several reasons for this, e.g. you may need to clear your browser cache or flush your caching plugin, but I will talk about this later.

So, you can clear (and also disable/enable) the Divi cache in Divi Theme Options > Builder > Advanced > Static CSS File Generation. Click to disable the static CSS file generation (then enable it back) and click the “Clear” button, too.

Now go back to view your website and check if you see the changes that you have made. If you still can’t see them, you might like to do the following:

Try to clear your browser cache. In Chrome you can do this by going to Settings > Privacy and security > Clear browsing data. Then just clear the cached images and files data.

If you use a caching plugin (e.g. WP Rocket or W3 Total Cache), try clearing its cache, too. You will find the option to do it in the plugin’s settings.

Also, if you use a CDN, e.g. Cloudflare, you will need to purge cache. You will find this option in the settings of your CDN.

And the last thing you may need to do is to clear your web hosting provider cache. Not all web hosts have this option, but my host, SiteGround, uses the SuperCacher app. You will find it in your control panel and there you can flush cache for your websites.

Finally, if you need to clear your browser cache often, e.g. you develop Divi child themes, you may want to install the Cache Killer extension to your browser. Using it you can easily clear your browser cache with just one click.

And that’s all that you may need to do to see the changes that you have made to your Divi website. Try to do it all step by step and check your website after each step. That way you will know what caused the issue in your website not updating.

Also, when you are refreshing your website, don’t press just F5, but try pressing Ctrl + F5 always.
