Publishing Front Page To Server
Changes Not Showing On All Computers

I have successfully published a Front Page update to the server. However, some of the items saved show on some computers, but not on others. If it is on some computers, that means the server has successfully uploaded the changes. Why do some computers not show certain changes. (All PCs checked use Internet Explorer.)

Any suggestions?

Maybe a proxy server? Trying pressing Ctrl+F5 (hard refresh).

Is it possible this is a matter of caching at the PC level? Have you tried refreshing the page to see if the changes appear? I know, that is a dense question, but, you'd be surprised at the number of times I've had to answer this question with clients. Once they refresh the page, they see the changes.

Ctrl + F5 will refresh the page from the server bypassing local cache.

moltar, I wonder how many seconds we were off from posting. ;)

Thank you!

It worked. I had tried clicking the "Refresh" button at the top of the page dozens of times, with negative results. I tried rebooting and refreshing EVERYTHING that I had updated from the previous day. Nothing worked. But when I tried the Control/F5 button, it worked.

What is the difference between the "Refresh" button and the "Control/F5" button, or Hard Refresh?

It worked!

Thanks guys. I don't know the difference between the "Refresh" button at the top of the screen and the hard refresh of "Control/F5", but the later certainly worked.

Thanks again.

Hopefully someone will correct me if I'm wrong. But, the difference lies in how the refresh is done. When you click the Refresh button in the browser, the page is refreshing from your local cache.

When you use the Ctrl + Refresh or Ctrl + F5 command, you are forcing the page to refresh from the server bypassing the local cache.

I think I understand now.

Is there another option for doing a hard refresh besides Control/F5? On occasion, my F Function keys do not work on my home computer.

Ctrl + Refresh

Press the Ctrl key while clicking the browser Refresh button.

On occasion, my F Function keys do not work on my home computer.

This may be due to the F Lock key being pressed by accident (if you have one). When they don't work, reach up there and press that F Lock key (usually in the right hand corner of your keyboard at the end of the F row).

Thank you.
I will try that next time.
I am not at home, so I can't see if my keyboard has
an F-Lock Key. However, my computer at work has three keys at the end of the F row. They are:
Print Scrn/SysRq, Scroll Lock, and Pause/Break.
If these don't work, I assume that I can press
Control and the "Refresh" button at the top of the
screen and it will do the same thing. Am I correct?

That would be the standard sequence on a regular keyboard. Some keyboards are what they refer to as extended keyboards and may have the F Lock key as the F Keys serve two functions with an extended keyboard.

Yes, Ctrl + Refresh will perform the same function as Ctrl + F5.

Well, it worked at work, but not at home. Everybody (on their computers) seems to be able to see two ads that I placed on the Home Page of my website but me. At the time these two ads were put up, I did not know that you had to delete hyperlinks individually and I would simply press the delete key each time instead of going up to the toolbar and selecting the remove hyperlink option. So, I deleted multiple tests that I performed on the ad. Also, because of my limited knowledge of linking pictures, each banner ad actually has two links. I put a link on the picture and on the words as well that are beneath the picture. They are directly on top of each other in different cells. The situation was complicated even more when somebody upgraded my hard drive and convinced me to go to "Go Live" from Front Page. I didn't like it and tried to go back to Front Page, but didn't delete "Go Live" immediately. And when I did, I simply pressed the delete key. Somewhere in this mess, I lost the capability of viewing the ads myself on Internet Explorer. I see them fine in Front Page and in the "Preview" option of Front Page and everybody else can see them. Also, all of the other links on my site that go to that ad do not show up. It is just a blank on the page in that spot. Any suggestions? I don't think that it is permissible to indicate my web address in this forum, or I would have so you could review the HTML code. Please help. When I publish changes in the ad, I don't know whether it actually changed until I go to work and check it on my work computer.

Click on code view. Right-click and choose Reformat Html.
Hopefully that will clean your code. If not, delete the code and start over.

Also, delete your cache file.

Wow! I hope it is that simple!
Correct me if I am wrong. I am new at this.

Select view, then html code (I am at work and don't have Front Page here.) Then right click and select Reformat HTML.

I am not sure how to delete cache.
I am guessing that I go to Internet Explorer and select Internet Options, and then under Temporary Internet Files, select Delete Files.
Is this correct?

Yes to both questions.

Reformatting the html may clean it up for you. If it doesn't, here's what I would do.

Open the problem page. We'll call it page.htm. Now open a new blank page and save that page as page2.htm or something similar. Now reopen page.htm. Now you should have the two pages showing on the tabs.

Now rebuild page.htm to page2.htm. You can copy/paste images and text to page2.htm.

When you're done and page2.htm is a workable page, close page.htm and go to the file and delete it.

Close page2.htm and go to the files and rename it to page.htm.

I admit I've had to do this more than once. FP is very forgiving but there is a point where it starts coughing things back at ya. :)

I tried to right click and reformat the html codes, but nothing seemed to happen.

Do I need to hi-light the script first, and if so, can I hi-light the entire source code for the entire website and right click to reformat everything? I do not know how to read html code yet and I was afraid to guess at what to hi-light for fear I would do something that would keep my site from coming up at all.

Rock, I had a little more time to think about this (look out! He's trying to think again). I bet you have some ad blocking software on your home computer, like Norton's or similar.

For a while Norton's was being installed with ad blocking on for the default. Check that out.

Yes, I do.
I would be afraid to surf the internet without it on my system. And, I get a lot of suspicious emails.

I have Norton System Works 2003.

But, I don't understand how I can see the other 99% of my site and not be able to see this particular part.
