WordPress caching problem - but I don't have a cache plugin!

My membership pages are sometimes able to be viewed by non-members, and my members sometimes get the login block on top of their member's content pages that are protected by PilotPress. I'm told it could be a cache, but I didn't see any caching plugins in my Plugins section of the WordPress admin area. Help!

If you use WPEngine for your webhosting, see THIS ANSWER

Some plugins activate a WordPress "Drop-in" plugin named advanced-cache.php, and do not remove it when you deactivate or delete the original plugin. Look in WordPress > Administration > Plugins and see if you see an entry for Drop-ins along the top of the page. Click on the word "Drop-ins" and see if the advanced-cache.php plugin is present:

If you know which plugin added the drop in plugin, you can deactive and delete it and see if it cleans up after itself. Unfortunately many plugins leave advanced-cache.php behind. You cannot delete it from the WordPress admin area. You need to use FTP or your control panel for your hosting account to find the file in the /wp-content/ folder and manually delete it. Ask your webmaster or webhost for help.
