V8 -- Subsitewide Clear and Update Cache

In order to improve performance, CommonSpot maintains several files on the server disk drives that contain variant versions of each page, ready for sending to the different browser types. Whenever a page is modified, those cache files must be erased, and then re-created. At times, the automatic clearing fails; one-page-at-a-time clearing is possible, but for large sites is laborious. Instead, you can clear the cache for a whole subsite:

  1. Login and navigate to any page in the subsite; click on the pencil at the upper-right; select "View Page in CommonSpot."

  2. Click on the Admin button in the full-width navigation bar; select "Subsite Administration..."; choose the subsite; click on the "Next" button at the lower-right.

  3. Click on the orange "Clear Cache" button at the upper-right (the same color and placement as the "Preview" button when working on a page).

  4. Click to check the box to "Include child subsites" -- or not, as appropriate.

  5. Click the "Clear Cache" button at the lower-right.
