W3TC creating weird pages at times, requires a cache flush to fix

Hi there,

I have installed W3TC and I am seeing a behaviour which is not desired.

Normally our webpage looks like this: https://www.dropbox.com/s/3wle2rqe360r40o/Screenshot%202015-11-15%2010.11.58.png?dl=0

But at times, when I visit the website (from a different browser where I am not logged in) I can see something like this:


As soon as I clear the cache, the problem disappears. But I do not wish to keep clearing the cache as it would defy the very purpose of using cache.

Please help.

Kind regards,
Malkiat Singh

    Hey Malkiat,

    Hope you're doing well today. It looks like W3TC is causing issues with the CSS styles loading, so the styles aren't being applied properly. In most cases this will be a theme conflict. Have you created a ticket with your theme developer/support? Good chance they have had tickets on this before and will know a solution to get around it :slight_smile:

    In a lot of cases something like this could be due to minifying the css or html.

    Look forward to hearing back.
