I haven't used it to its full potential yet, but for now it seems great
πŸƒ3️⃣ 1, 2024
I am very disappointed, lost a lot of time building a frontpage for a friend with this Spectra and Astra combo, only to discover that it has some caching issues, it's like the frontpage is ALWAYS the first version I saved days ago, it just doesn't update.I see one version in the editor, and another one on the frontpage. Very sad, lots of time lost because of this, trying to fix it. I have turned off ALL cache even at server-level, so NO WP_CACHENO REDISNO OPCACHENO MEMCACHE(D)ABSOLUTELY NO CACHING ANYWHEREAnd the frontpage still shows a version from quite a while ago, updating has NO effect on it.
