List of Themes/Plugins:
If your site is not showing new changes or if you are having trouble with old URLs sticking around, there is a good chance that there is a theme or plugin cache holding on to old content. This can happen even when you may have already turned on Development Mode and flushed various caches.
A cache that often gets forgotten about is theme caching and/or plugin caching. For page/site builder themes and plugins, the CSS/JS files are often cached hard and it can take some time to find the button to clear these out. Below is a list of the page/site builder themes and plugins we’ve come across, and where to find their cache clearing buttons (hint: usually in the theme or plugin options).
This is not an exhaustive list. If your theme or plugin is not on this list, let us know via support chat or a ticket and we can take a look and see if we can help you figure out what is causing the issue!
In your WordPress dashboard go to: Appearance > Astra Options > then over to the right you will see “CSS File Generation” > Click the “Refresh” button.

Avada is a theme that has its own builder plugin, Fusion.
In your WordPress dashboard go to: Theme Options > Advanced > Dynamic CSS & JS > and click the “Reset Fusion Caches” button.
Depending on version, this setting may now be found under Theme Options > Performance> and click the “Reset Fusion Caches” button.
In your WordPress dashboard go to: head to Settings > Beaver Builder, then click Tools, and click the “Clear Cache” button.

BeTheme includes a built-in page builder that stores URLs in some odd way; not in the database. The theme developer had to make a special plugin for updating URLs:
So, if you’re using that theme and are having trouble with URLs, that tool is our best recommendation, but you should probably double-check with the theme developer to make sure that’s still what they recommend and use.
Copy the following URL and paste it behind your site URL in your browser’s address bar: /wp-admin/admin.php?page=cornerstone-settings
Once you have done that, click on the “Clear Style Cache” button.
In your WordPress dashboard go to: Settings > Divi-> Theme Options -> Builder->Advanced, and click the “Clear” button next to Static CSS File Generation.
Elementor is a builder plugin, but it has built-in caching like some themes. To regenerate the CSS, in your WordPress dashboard go to: Elementor > Tools > and click the “Regenerate CSS” button.
Elementor also has a Replace URL tool (Elementor > Tools > Replace URL) that may need to be used after changing a domain (e.g. after a migration to a temp domain) or when switching from HTTP to HTTPS (or vice versa).

OptimizePress uses something called LiveEditor, and that page content is encoded, so a database search and replace won’t do the trick for this one. Fortunately, they’ve got an OptimizePress Helper Tool that their customers can install and use to make that change. You can find more info on this tool here or just download it here.

Sometimes Slider Revolution hangs onto an old URL despite your (and our) best search/replace efforts.
So you may need to execute a search and replace through the plugin interface to update those URLs. For each slider, there’s a little box under Slider Revolution > Slider Settings in the WordPress dashboard:
If you have a newer version of Slider Revolution you may need to use their Domain Switch Add-on instead. You can find more information on this Add-On here.
From your WordPress dashboard, go to Smart Slider > Settings > Cache > and click the “Clear Cache” button.

From your WordPress dashboard, go to WPML > Support > Troubleshooting > and click the “Clear the cache in WPML” button.
