Saves you from asking “have you emptied your cache?”.
Forked and updated for todays WordPress and PHP from the original plugin by Paul Clark.
- Safe to leave running on live sites.
- Only refreshes browser cache for a file if it has been modified.
- Resolves Content Delivery Network (CDN) issues. No need to purge CDN cache.
- Multisite compatible.
- “Just works” — no configuration necessary.
Requires scripts use any of the below functions to load. Almost all files meet these requirements. The only case it doesn’t account for is when URLs are hard-coded. This shouldn’t ever be done, since it can break sites for other reasons.
- Search for “reBusted” under
WordPress Admin > Plugins > Add New
- Install the plugin.

It does the job. You upload or do changes to the css, js of the site, and with just pressing the F5, everybody gets the new changes.
The style.css just wouldn't update any more, nothing I did helped. Version numbers, flushing caches, tried all the tricks I found in the net. The domain and site owner wouldn't answer my msgs. After hours of frusration I installed this, and.. aaaaahh! Like sunshine after a year of rain. Thank you for this plugin. Great work.
A simple and efficient plugin avoiding ugly displays when updating CSS, particularly with design builders where css can't be completely controlled. Version 1.1 perfectly working out of the box. Thanks!
This plugin has been a godsend for Beaver Builder sites where the CSS version number is impossible to update (even with its own cache clearing tool).
I appreciate this so much, many things weren't working on a website I'm working on with an uncommunicative host and this worked instantly.
What more can I say! It does exactly what is says on the tin!
Previously I had to keep the Chrome Dev Tools open with the option to disable the cache (while dev tools is open) to get my child theme style.css version number to update after a change on page refresh, but now that's no longer required.
Also see it being very useful for when clients are waiting for a quick change and have the previous version stuck in the browser cache.
Thanks, I'll be using it on other sites going forward 🙂
