W3 Total Cache Purge All Post Plugin


W3 Total Cache Purge caching mechanism is somewhat very confusing. Which page to purge? Does the archive need to purge to? How about the widget?

We know that W3 Total Cache already have mechanism to purge archive page with similar tag/category (post term purge). However this is not sufficient.

W3 Total Cache Purge Plugin

Consider this scenario:

Web sitemap:

  • Home
    • category/category_1
    • post_type_2
    • pages_x (contain post_type_2 with custom WP_Query)

With normal W3 Total cache if you publish post with post_type_2 and category 1 the /pages_x will not purge !

Our solution is to purge all the page cache during a post is marked publish.

When Will All Page be Purged?

  1. There is new post marked as publish (updated or new post)
  2. Post move to trash

Setting Recommendation

  1. Do not prime/preload page cache , this will slow your site
  2. Use disqus/livefrye for your comment, it will reduce page cache problem
