Hi All,

I am new to shopify and i have made some changes in one of my liquid file. Those changes are only visible in my live site when i hard refresh it. I need to purge cache of my app from my admin panel but couldn't find a option.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Cache clearing should happen automatically if you're editing the Liquid files.

Can you provide more detail on what you're doing, and the replication steps?

Hi Jason, 

I am having the same problem, and have been having this problem ever since I started working with Shopify.

I have a Dev store, and I am developing in the browser, not locally on my machine.  I noticed that there are times when I make changes to liquid files that they do not register AT ALL in the overall design of the pages of the site that I am working on. For example, I change the padding for a div from 25vh to 0, and nothing happens after I save, refresh, hard refresh, purge cache and refresh, try a different browser, NOTHING!

I even went as far as to Comment out all the code in the liquid file! No changes on the front end. 

What i need to resort to is creating a duplicate file with a different name, and even then it doesn't work.

I'm surprised there is no documentation or controls on the CDN side of things.

I have this same issue with a .js.liquid file in a client's Assets folder. The file is created as part of an app installation.

 

I've tried renaming the file and naming it back. The only way I can get it to purge the cdn cache for it seems to be to delete the file and re-upload it which is part of the app uninstall / reinstall process.
