Blog postedPosted on January 26, 2017 by Donna Pickerill

"I still don't see the new updates you've made?" This is something we hear all the time from our clients! So we thought we'd share some tips with ya'll!

Are you having trouble seeing the new updates you've made to your website?  

Are you getting frustrated that you have just spent 2 hours making amazing updates and adding all new photo's only to not have them render to your new site? 

Just take a deep breath, count to 10 and.....clear your cache and delete your cookies! 

Clearing your cache and deleting your cookies will allow you to see the most current files. Furthermore, regular clearing of the cache will allow your browser to function more efficiently. 

+What is a CACHE?
Browsers store files (cache them) each time you access a file through your web browser. This allows the browser to retrieve files and images from the website each time you click back and forward.

+What are COOKIES?
No..not the yummy kind your mom makes with chocolate chips...A cookie is a file created by a web browser, at the request of a website. It is then stored on your computer. These files store user-specific information such as authentication data, selections in a form, and shopping cart information.

+What is BROWSER HISTORY?
This is the log of the sites you have visited. Each time you press the back button you are moving back once in the history.

+TECH TIP - If your not sure which browser version you are currently using, you can visit whatbrowser.org to find out!
