    Hi,

    It sounds like the problem may be that your web browser is showing you cached, out-of-date versions of your webpages instead of the current versions that you have just uploaded.

    Web browsers keep copies of recently viewed webpages on your hard drive, so that it can load them quicker than reading them from the Internet again. They are supposed to notice when the pages have changed, and then load a new copy, but sometimes they make mistakes and continue to show you out-of-date copies. This often happens when you have just checked a page, made an update to it, and then check it again, all within a short time.

    The solution is to empty your web browser's cache, and then you should see the updated webpages. To do this in Safari:

    * In Safari, go to the Safari menu, and choose Empty Cache.
    * Safari will ask you if you're sure. Click the Empty button.
    * Then go to your website address, and view the pages to see if they look okay.

    If this does not fix the problem, please tell us the address of your website and we will take a look and see if we have any advice to offer.

    Thanks,
