Site not updating changes
If you do want to do a ‘hard refresh’ of your website cache in Chrome (without effecting other websites you browse to) open the web inspector in Chrome.Then right-click the refresh button and select Hard Reload from the menu.The ‘problem’ (if you want to call it that) is not only isolated to Rapid Weaver - I’ve seen the same thing happening in concrete5 which also uses a similar system of cache-busting links. I also seem to remember seeing a post but couldn’t remember the suggestion was related to Cloudflare. and then, instead, if I go into Cloudflare and clear the cache… thanks, Lisa Cache busting links and Cloud Flare changes will effect all visitors to your website.
I would expect the cache-busting links to receive a NEW query string, if a page gets flagged as changed. I have a “faux” “blog” index page which is hand made each day using a Stacks3 page.
Your browser does this because using cache allows the page to load much faster since it’s already stored on your computer.
Once you clear your cache, the browser will stop using the saved version of your site and go grab the newest version, including your updates.
And yes, it could effect what website visitors see, when they arrive at your website.
So you could try disabling ‘cache busting links’ in your site settings.
