Changes to Website not Showing

by | Jun 20, 2022 | 0 comments

To speed up web browsing, your browser will download and keep copies of your webpage locally on your device. This is known as “caching”, and the saved files are referred to as the “cache” in an area called “cache”.

When you visit a page for a second time in a short period, you will see a saved copy stored in the cache rather than a fresh copy from the website.

This means you might not always be seeing the latest version of a webpage.

Hard Refresh your Cache

In the first case you should try to "Hard Refresh" your cache.
  • Windows: ctrl + F5
  • Mac/Apple: Apple + R or command + R
  • Linux: F5
  • Clear your Cache

    If a Hard Refresh does not work, you should clear your cache, i.e. delete the cached files stored by your computer or device. How you do this will depend on the device you are using.

    We recommend you use the website refreshyourcache.com for full instructions for your device.
