If you have a custom theme, you should switch to using cache-buster in your header.tplpsychobunny created this issue in NodeBB/NodeBB closed Update cache buster when switching themes #3573
Hello, a stupid question. How can I clear the cache of the application??
No question is judged stupid here. We are all learning. If I understand the question correctly, the procedure depends on your browser.
If Firefox, Ctrl F5 will do the trick. For Chromium, Shift F5 is it.
Ohh thanks!! I was making changes and I didn't see any change because of this...
I've had this issue many times before. It gets quite annoying when you forget.
Maybe it is possible add something on starting. I mean, when you run node app then clear cache because we can forget this and the first thing is rerun the app.
@drubio Because it's the browser cache, there's nothing we can really do except ensure that we are sending cache headers that instruct the browser not to cache. In some cases (e.g. category images), we don't send those header, so it's up to the browser default.
