Clearing Cache after every transaction

I’m using WP Fastest Cache and have blocked all the critical pages. Every time someone signs up for an event, then the next person complains they can’t register. Then I clear the site cache and the new person can register. So basically I have to clear my site cache after every single transaction. Any idea why?
thanks.

Hi there,

Are you using the premium version of WP Fastest Cache or the standard?

Can you post a screenshot that shows your cache exclusions, please?

I am using the standard version. However, I did not exclude the category pages – should I exclude them as well?

Category pages should be OK. If you temporarily deactivate WP Fastest cache, does the error go away? If so, you could use the WP Super Cache plugin instead, we’ve not had any reports of issues with the Super Cache plugin.

You have to exclude EE from any caching, regardless of the plugin/method used.

With e-commerce plugins, all of the content is unique for each visitor to that page so you can’t cache the response from one user and display it to another (which is basically what caching does).

Ah okay that is very helpful. I think I will go without a caching plugin for a while and see how that works out. Thank you so much.

Actually, Josh just let me know the above isn’t correct. WP Super Cache (correctly) ignores any requests with the constant DONOTCACHEPAGE set to true. EE does this for all of its pages so it should just exclude those by default.
