    Hi guys. I hope you guys are doing fine. Anyway i seem to be having problems when i installed cache plugins on my wordpress site. The problem is that when i installed these cache plugins, my theme will tend to mess up. Example would be like when i update the logo of the theme or include some new widgets on the sidebar, my homepage and some of the pages doesn't seem to change. I've since deleted these cache plugins from my site and my site is doing fine. I've tried both wp super cache and quickcache. Any idea on how i should tackle this problem? I really want to use them to increase page speed.

    I don't have any experience with the cache plugins that you mentioned above, but I am using W3 Total Cache and works well for me.
    Some points that you might consider before accusing to the plugin are Making sure your theme is not conflict with plugin or After making any changes to your theme, don't forget to flush or purge you cache.

    You just have to give it time because it will be showing the cached version, but after a while it will show the changed version. Or alternatively you could delete the cache every time you make any changes.

    Hey thanks. I don't think it's the theme because i've tried with wordpress default theme and the problem still persist when those plugins were installed. I might give w3 total cache a try though! :D

    Don't forget to delete your site cache as well as browser cache after making changes on your theme to make sure it's changed!

    Caching JS scripts can cause some problems too, so any more problems trying turning off minify JS
