Browser cache are useful for web browsing , but a real pain point for developers.

Modern day browsers nowadays cache every front end resource like javascript or CSS style sheets. They primarily do this to increase the website performance. But this can be really irritating while one is in development mode and constantly modifying the javascript or css style sheets. The only way to see the changes is by doing a hard refresh or clear the cache of the browser.

hard refresh is a way of clearing the browser’s cache for a specific page, to force it to load the most recent version of a page. Sometimes, when changes are made to the website, they don’t register immediately due to caching. A hard refresh will usually fix this, though occasionally completely clearing the cache is necessary.

How to do hard refresh on various browsers?

Chrome:

Quick hard refresh can be done by using the following short cut keys

Windows/Linux:

  1. Hold down Ctrl and click the Reload button.
  2. Or, Hold down Ctrl and press F5.
  3. just open the Chrome Dev Tools by pressing F12. Once the chrome dev tools are open, just right click on the refresh button and a menu will drop down. This menu gives you the option of doing a hard refresh, or even clearing the cache and do a hard refresh automatically.

o/c the big problem is our 'host' switching over servers.  There have been over 25 shutdown and reboots since last night.  Normally we see one in SIX MONTHS.  Certainly hope they clear this up quickly.

Every site is on ning is getting 500 notices. It is a dying animal IMHO.

 Mangus, Ning was sold on Friday... new servers are resetting things... it should settle down...we hope!

Good as ning was a good tool - now just hope these folks will get the quality back.

 Mangus, trust me after spending the weekend answering emails and trying to find out what is going on, and reading the creators forum, where everyone is disgusted

and trying to figure out who these folks are and why they bought ning- some aspect of the co. is an investment capital firm...which may not be good...

Well it seem the new owner has some interest in the project - all could see it was going down for a year.

crossing my fingers as KOS deleted the site we had built on Word press about a week ago... 

Happy Constitution day although every day of the year should be a happy Constitution day.

Good information to post.

Study the Constitution so you know that the government is exceeding it's granted powers.

Today is Constitution Day. Here's what the Founders' path to writing the Constitution can teach us about accomplishing our typically much humbler pursuits.
