Refresh

Background

The need to refresh has nothing to do with how we design, display or save our web site. It is  because of the incorrect settings on your computer under Internet options not ensuring that you view the current page every time.

Web browser store pages on your computer. When you visit a page, it is downloaded and stored (cached). When you return to that page, the web browser often loads the old version downloaded when you last visited the site unless your settings are correct. There are ways to correctly set or refresh your system  for Browser as outlined below. Setting the number of days in your history setting (cache) to "0" will assist. Detailed steps to correct your Internet settings are listed noting that there is no uniform fix for all Browsers.
