Cloudflare Caching

Our website is not caching requests. We’re novices at Cloudflare and need assistance.

Last week we updated our products pages and products to have a more “tree-like” structure to perform better in terms of SEO

Inside of my wordpress dashboard and on my browser’s front end (chrome) the changes reflect, but anyone visiting the site or page, who has never been there before is getting the Old/Incorrect link. The old links were built using a “portfolio” plugin and we have since deleted the plugin and associated posts to remove bloat from the backend.

This is the step we have tried several times over the last week.
