What Can Happen?
Depending on the level of caching enabled, pages might present bugs or break altogether.
Test 1) Disable W3TC
As a first measure, disable the W3TC to ensure it's the one causing conflict.
If deactivating the plugin solves the issue, activate it again and continue to the next step.
Test 2) Tune Down Minification Settings
Head to WP Admin → Performance → General Settings.
- Set Minify mode to "Manual" and check the problematic page again.
- If the problem persists, turn Minify off.
As a next measure, go to Performance → Minify. Try disabling HTML, CSS and JS minifications.
Test 3) Disable CDN Settings
