Matt Mccaleb report:

I'm having trouble with our website, Whenever I create a new post, it can sometimes take up to days for it to populate on our front page. Is there a specific reason for this? Can I change that setting?

Could you please ask Matt to pass along some specific details? Can he give an example of post that took a while to show up? And, most importantly, can he specify where on the home page new posts are designed to show up? The page at has a slider as well as several different columns.

He replies:

"The two most recent posts, "ACERT Teaching Hack - Social Annotation with" and "Small Teaching and" are currently on the front page, but there was a long delay between publishing and the posts actually populating on the front page. Thanks for looking into this!"

Thanks for being the go-between, Marilyn.

Could you please ask for details about what "populating on the front page" means? If it's not possible to describe, perhaps an annotated screenshot? There are several different areas on the front page that can have content, and in order to debug, I will need to be confident that I'm looking at the right one.

Thanks for the details.

These posts are provided by List Category Posts, which is powered by a shortcode that's embedded in a table generated by TablePress. My best guess is that TablePress is caching the shortcode output, and the cache is only being invalidated every couple of days.

It should be possible to disable table cache by adding cache_table_outpu=false to the table shortcode definition at So it would read:

[table id=5 cache_table_output=false /]

Going to close this as resolved based on the above.
