How can I refresh my browser's cache?

HOME > WEBSITE AREA > How can I refresh my browser's cache?

 

If after publishing the changes under the WEBSITE tab, the new content you have uploaded to your website still does not appear, this is usually a cache problem.

 

Most browsers use a storage place on your computer called a cache to stash copies of pages you have visited. Then, when you want to go back to the page, the browser pulls the page from the cache rather than getting the actual page from the actual website.

The goal is to speed your internet experience, but it can cause problems. Sometimes the cache will hold an old copy of a page, or even an error message.

 

To force the browser to get the real page, see here the details on how you can refresh your cache for the most common browsers:
