Refreshing of updated website problem

Recommended Posts

I've found that when I update content on my (newly acquired) website, when I view the site, it shows the old layout.

Now, I close the browser (MSIE 7 mainly) THEN run CCleaner, but the only way to get the current website layout to show is to hit Control-F5 (forced server refresh). This suggests that the old site layout is still being cached *somewhere*.

Note that I need a lot of cookies for forums login info, so I use Cleaner rather than wiping the cache via the browser.

So,is CCleaner missing something or am I !?

I don't think its CCleaner. You might find some helpful information here.

 

I run into similar problems on some forum websites, depending on how they are constructed.

Morph000,

 

The cookies are stored in a different folder (at least in Windows XP) than the ""temporary internet files"". So, you can instruct CC to e.g. wipe the internet cache folder(s) and not your cookie folder. But you even can tell CC which cookies are to be wiped and which are to be preserved.

 

Using the browser (IE 7 and IE 8) to clean the internet cache only, won't clean the cookie folder as well.

Aethec - I tried MSIE 8 but it doesn't offer the same Links control as MSIE 7( and I have a L-O-T of links !!), so I went back to v7...

I mainly use MSIE for browsing, but use MSIE,Opera and Mozilla for testing. Same issue with all of them.

Manually viewing the website source code shows it HAS been updated.

 

CCleaner is configured to delete everything except specific cookies, and nothing from my website is selected to be saved(which would at most only be a cookie, and I don't need them), so that should be sufficient!

 

I think the question is : What is Ctrl-F5 doing as far as any MSIE cache is concerned ?
