My newly added product is not showing on the homepage of my prestashop store.
You’ve just added a new product and navigate to your store front expecting to see the product under new arrivals or under featured but see nothing there.
Why this may happen?
If your site is heavily cached this might be the reason.
What is cache?
Caching is the process of storing copies of files in a cache, or temporary storage location, so that they can be accessed more quickly. Technically, a cache is any temporary storage location for copies of files or data. meaning when you access your website, you are seeing a temporary stored page.
If you’re a web developer or a website owner, you’ll want to clear cache every so often. The reason is that every time you make a change to your website or to the CSS (cascading style sheets), you won’t see how the new changes look without clearing the cache.
To clear cache in the front-end, hold ctrl and press f5 to force a page refresh, if this does not work, in the dashboard of your prestashop go to advanced parameters -> performance-> clear cache button.
