When you visit our website (or any website), data from that site is stored on your computer. This is called “cache” and it helps speed up the transfer of the website data to your computer’s browser the next time you visit. Normally this is what you want, but occasionally you may want to force the website to send you new data. This is important if you want to see changes to your website as soon as they are made.
How to refresh your browser
To force your browser to refresh take the following steps:
⇧ Shift-click the Refresh button. While pressing the Refresh button on your browser’s address bar will only do a standard refresh, you can force a refresh from the server by pressing ⇧ Shift and clicking it instead.
Internet Explorer users should hold ^ Ctrl and click the Refresh button.

If you still can’t see the changes try to the following step …
Press Ctrl+F5. In most browsers, pressing Ctrl+F5 will force the browser to retrieve the webpage from the server instead of loading it from the cache. Firefox, Chrome, Opera, and Microsoft Edge all send a “Cache-Control: no-cache” command to the server. This forces the server to send the complete web page back to your browser.
For Safari users on OS X, press Option+⌘ Command+E to empty your cache, and then ⌘ Command+R to refresh the page. Since the cache has been deleted, the page will be retrieved from the server.
You can also force delete the cache in your browser settings. Mobile users will need to do this as there is no option to do this at browser level yet.
