Re: my web site is not refreshing
You need to clear the cache - to remove the old files that your browser is
currently showing - and you may want to clear the history files so that
your links go back to unvisited for testing the link/visited appearance.
In ie that's
Tools>Internet Options>Temporary Internet Files>Delete Files for the cache
Tools>Internet Options>History>Clear History for the history. That's a
single-shot solution - you'll need to do that each time you change the page
and want to see it in its new form.
So that you don't have to keep clearing the cache, you could set your
browser to ignore the files in the cache:
Tools>Internet Options>Temporary Internet Files>Settings>Check for newer
versions of stored pages>Every visit to the page
You could leave it all as it is and use Ctrl F5 to refresh the page - that
tells the browser to ignore the cache and get the latest version of the file
though the visited links will still show as visited.
If you feel that any of the above is incorrect,
inappropriate or offensive in any way,
please ignore it and accept my apologies.
