Field Notes


To cache something means to store it away in hiding or for future use. In websites, that means storing copies of files in a browser’s cache—or local cache—so that it can be accessed quickly on future visits. That includes images, videos, JavaScript, and all website files. A local cache can be cleared manually or with a hard refresh.

Sometimes browsers can be stubborn at clearing a local cache and a hard refresh doesn’t suffice. The Infantree DEV team has options to help. We can manually clear a cache a variety of ways:

  • via the WordPress dashboard
  • via Kinsta, provided by Anchor Host
  • via the theme’s file that loads assets. Cavalree is already developed to pull the latest saved CSS, which helps ensure type, color, and layout changes can be readily viewed with a simple page refresh.
