Cache Clearing tool

Caches can really speed up page loads, but their annoying side comes when you're trying to modify a website and can't get the view to reflect the changes you've just made, or worse, that your site visitors don't see the updates.

As of Beaver Builder 2.1.5, there is a cache clearing tool that automatically clears caches created by any of the most popular caching plugins under the following conditions:

  • When WordPress finishes updating plugins and themes. 
  • When Beaver Builder editor is active
    This works by defining the DONOTCACHEPAGE constant while the page is being edited, This constant is respected by most caching plugins.
  • When layouts and templates are saved in the Beaver Builder editor

The tool is enabled by default. To disable it, on the WordPress admin panel go to the Cache Clearing Tool section of Settings > Beaver Builder > Tools.

There is also a setting that enables automatic clearing of proxy caches, such as Varnish and Litespeed. If you're not sure whether your site is subject to a proxy cache, leave that setting disabled.

Note: This tool was formerly available as a plugin in GitHub. If you have that plugin installed, called Beaver Builder Cache Helper, deactivate and delete it.
