Purge theme and templates cache

Post by dart » Sat Aug 07, 2021 2:48 pm

Hello,
I had recently made a change with the blog. Based on what I have been used to with another blog software, I executed a purge to refresh things.
Right after the purge, I noticed the 'new comments' widget now reads 'no new commnts' on the main page. This surprised me since I had not expected the purge to delete the list. The comments are still in the posts tho.

My questions:
#1 - is there anyway to execute a purge with an exclusion to the 'new comments list' ?
#2 - is there set amount of new comments that post on the list ? - do they expire. I don't find any way to adjust this widget.

Thanks in advance

solution:
tried this and actually worked.
before 'Purge theme and templates cache', download lastcomments.tmp from [fp-content/cache/lastcomments.tmp].
...purge, then upload the lastcomments.tmp - thus retaining all the last comments from the widget.

I need to check this, an issue is created.

The number of comments is hard-coded indeed. Check line 12 of fp-plugins/lastcomments/plugin.lastcomments.php - you can simply change that number to your needs.
