Elementor's External File CSS print method prevents changes from showing without manually clearing the cache #1516

The Elementor page builder has two methods to save changes to the styling of a post/page:

  • External File (Default)
  • Internal Embedding

When the External File CSS print method is selected, every change of the styling in a post/page is saved to an external file, like this:

Every change/update cycle will change the version of the file:

Updating the post/page clears its cache, but the HTML references the same WP Rocket-created CSS file, which doesn't include the applied changes. Those will become visible when the cache is cleared manually.

A temp workaround is to enable the Internal Embedding.

Is there a hook available in Elementor when they update the CSS, on which we could hook on our clear of the minified files?
