Edits To Your Listings Not Showing Up? It's Probably Your Cache

If you find that you have made changes to your tour but it won't reflect those changes when you go to watch, you may need to clear the cache in your browser.
 


In Chrome:
Go to the top right and click the button with the 3 dots on it, Then select Settings.
At the bottom of the new screen, click to open the Advanced menu, then select Clear Browsing Data. You'll then see options to check. The only option necessary for our purposes is Cached Images And Files. The dropdown menu at the top gives you options on how far back in time to go. It would probably be best to choose "from the past day" to be sure.


 
When you have your settings in place, click "Clear browsing data." Once that is finished, you'll want to make sure to close Chrome all the way and reopen it. At that point, you should be good to go!
 
In Firefox:
Go to the top right and click the button with the 3 horizontal lines, then select Options. On the options screen click the "Privacy and Security," option on the left, and you will see a "History" section. Click "clear your recent history." The "details" tab will give some options on what sort of data to eliminate. For our purposes, the only one we need is "Cache."
 
 
Press the "Clear Now" button, and you're done!
 
In Microsoft Edge:
Go to the top right corner, click the icon with the three horizontal dots, and select the clock icon. From there, click the area marked "Clear all history," and select "Cached data and files."
 
 
The "Cached data and files" option should be all you need. Just click on "Clear" and you're done!
 
 
IF THIS BECOMES A FREQUENT PROBLEM:
 
  • There is a Chrome Extension called Cache Killer that, when activated, will automatically clear your cache every time you load a page! The extension adds a button to the top of your Chrome window, and when you get ready to do your editing you can just click the button and it should prevent the caching events that keep you from seeing the latest version of your listing edits.
 
Note that extensions can cause compatibility issues with other aspects of Chrome.
 
  • Firefox users have a similar extension available called Empty Cache Button. It adds a button to your Firefox window that can be clicked before loading an edited listing to be sure that you are seeing the most current version.
Note that extensions can cause compatibility issues with other aspects of Firefox.
