The other day I was trying to edit my website design and I noticed that some the components look really odd from what I can see on my other computer.
To verify the same I cleared all the website cache and Cloudflare cache then tried to reload the website many times but it didn’t anything.
This also made me realize that lots of my regular visitors are still looking at the old version of my website containing some unfixed CSS which I have already fixed.
I really had a hard time changing and fixing the CSS of my website as some components don’t seem to change.
Well, this problem isn’t limited to the just debugging your website design but it also creates some problems while using some other websites which might break some components from working because of old cache saved by the browser.
This made me scratch my head and I ended up clearing all the browser data and then I had to log in to every other website back again. I wrote this guide so you won’t have to do the same mistake I did and so you remove only an individual website cache that you want to remove while keeping the other website data as it is.
There is a quick and easy way to eliminate this problem and this method should be a big help for you if next time you encountered any problem and you want to remove cache of an individual website without removing the other website’s cache.
