HOWEVER, it appears this is a problem with GoDaddy's caching system as nonces expire after 12 hours. So 12 hours later, this feature no longer works because it's still providing the expired nonce to the script. A manual cache flush fixes this, but I can't expect my client to flush cache every 12 hours. Is there a way to prevent GoDaddy caching wp_localize_script()? I could also try wp_nonce_field() and see if maybe that stops the caching behaviour, but I doubt it.
The only solution I can see doing is to redirect all traffic to this page to append the query string ?nocache=1 which sounds sloppy and potentially problematic to me. Any other ideas?
Hi @melissa_g, welcome to the community! 🙂
Do you, by any chance have access to the GD Cache plugin?
If so, I'd do as follows:
I know it's not exactly what you're looking for, since they should not be cached in the first place, but could be a solution for particular issue.
Hope it helps!
Thanks! This actually gives me some ideas.
If I can find the method to call in my code, I can set a cron job that runs every 12 hours and clears the cache for me. That way it's not happening on each page request. I'll look into that in the AM and see if that leads me anywhere.
