I am unsure of when I should be or often be rebuilding different caches. Any advice?
You shouldn't need to in general day to day use.
What are some examples of when I should or would be recommended?
If I make changes manually in the DB then I'll sometimes need to do a rebuild to get the correct counts, that's about it though.
Good call. I have made some edits in phpmyadmin recently
Tylically only if there is a problem related to certain data showing incorrectly, or for certain tasks such as rebuilding the search index or manually triggering user group promotions.
You should never be directly manipulating the database.
well, some things XF just can't do from admin and prune was the wrong word. I was setting thin threads to soft delete mode
Our site is running a bit slow and someone with a reasonable amount of knowledge in this area advised me to rebuild some caches to speed it up (among other things). So I'm not sure which ones I should be rebuilding. Any advise here? Couldn't find much information on this.
Rebuilding caches will not really affect site speed.
Ok, so under what circumstances would I rebuild caches?
Generally, you don't need to. You won't need to in the normal running of the forum, unless there are specific values that appear incorrectly or where things are missing.
Separate names with a comma.
