I have this strange problem that some random webp images inside my posts aren't loading. When I log in and investigate, the original jpg image URL exists and I can view the image, but on the front end it just a little blue icon for missing image. To me, this is some kind of webp image caching issue, but I'm not sure.
Today I've made a major revamp to my site's design, and several images aren't showing on the front end. When I log in, I see them, but not when I view on my iPhone or using incognito mode. I've cleared the cache for the URL and still the images aren't showing. I've removed and re-selected the image from my media library, and still it won't show on the front end.
Is there any way to clear the webp cache to "force" these seemingly random images to re-appear?
My work-around for the random images in my posts is to download the jpg version from my server, rename it, and upload it to my media library, insert it into the same position in my post, and then publish. This way the image shows up, but I'd rather avoid that hassle since I know the original image is on my server.
The issue tonight is more serious since I made a bunch of new pages, using existing images, and they aren't showing up. I really don't want to have to duplicate all my images just to "serve" fresh ones.
Thanks in advance for your help.
