|Many people have contacted us asking why they
can't see new pictures or why they can't log into the site using
their user name & password. After answering their questions
numerous times, we thought we'd give a quick lesson about Internet
Explorer web browser cache.
Web browser cache is when your browser saves a copy of the web page (among other files) to your computer's memory. This is done for almost every web page you look at. The question remaining is how to force your browser to "look" for an updated copy of the page.
There are many ways to solve this problem. The simplest is to go to the web page in question and hit your F5 key. However, this is a one-time fix, and will not look for an updated copy next time you're on the page. The method we recommend is to instruct your Internet Explorer browser to look each time it visits the page. Here's how to do this in Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.
Yeah, there are many different types of web browsers out there. We use MS Internet Explorer 7, therefore that's the one we'll give limited advice on. There are also other ways to clear your internet cache, but in the interest of someone mistakenly erasing an extremely important system file, we're not even going to try to explain how!
