Why can't I view the changes I just made to my website?

Last updated 12th March 2010

If you can't see changes which have been made to your website, it's probably because your browser has cached a version of your website on your computer (like saving it in a short term memory). The quick way to solve this is to press F5 on your keyboard a couple of times, which will force your computer to download a fresh version of the webpage you are viewing.

If you'd like to know more about browser caching, what it is and why it happens, take a look at the Wikipedia entry on the subject.
