my last tweak was the wp super cache, then i remembered the problems with it, when the
cart wasnt updating automatically. so i disabled it, and about that time, clicking on
a add to cart button, then got a 404 error. if you click back, refresh a couple of times it eventually updates. but the cache plug, has messed it up. ive deleted the cache, after disabling didnt work. that didnt work, then delete and reinstall your plug ins. still same.
grateful for any help.

If you use the WP Super Cache then you need to use this Workaround so it doesn’t cache the pages that has the shopping cart:
My experience with WP Super Cache is not good (it doesn’t work the way it explains in the documentation). Luckily, the “W3 Total Cache” plugin that came out not so long ago is one of the best caching plugin at the moment and it works nicely according to it’s documentation. Just read the “W3 Total Cache Workaround” from this page if you want to use it:
Now, to address your site issue… I would do the following:
Reactivate WP Super Cache and hit the “Empty Cache” button then deactivate this plugin and check to see if the caching issue is gone.
If you are still seeing the caching issue then read the super cache uninstallation instruction from here:

thanks for the info. I did try it, but didn’t work. but that MAY not have been my problem, or at least all of my problem.
I tinkered around uninstalling wpcache for a while nothing worked. I remembered I added some code to enable product posts.
After deleting my entry, I went back an re entered the code to check, yep that was it.
But I’ll take your advise and get W3 cache, so I don’t have any cache issue.
Thanks that sent me in the right direction in the end. code isnt my forte.
Great cart plugin thanks.

I have WP eMember, WP eStore and WP Affiliate all installed. i just installed a separate plugin and have been advised to deactivate the cache plugin, as it conflicts with their software which needs to fetch and post live data regularly. (It’s a webinar plugin)
Will not having a cache affect the effectiveness of my affiliate, store and membership plugins? I note that you recommend it, and want to know if it’s vital.
Everything is updated to current versions.

You’ll never know until you “try it.” Everyone’s use case is different, and if you can’t tell the difference without the cache then there is no-harm done.June 4, 2014 at 2:11 am #22241adminKeymaster
Our plugins do not require any caching plugin so it is okay to de-activate the cache plugin.
