    I've used Iweb to make my website. I updated the site using Iweb but can't seem to upload files so that it updates to my website.

    I saved changes on iweb - then went to Fetch. Clicked on 'public' - then "Put" - selected files, then enter. Something happens - not sure what - but then when I go to my website, update is not reflected. Please help - this is so frustrating.

    Also - if I put http://stircrazycatering.ca in the browser I can see changes - but not if I enter www.stircrazycatering.ca

    Hi,

    It sounds like the problem is 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notice when the pages have changed, and then load a new copy, but sometimes they make mistakes and continue to show you out-of-date copies.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 happens more frequently when you have just looked a webpage 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.

    I suspect you saw the updated pages when you typed a slightly different address in because the web browser had only cached pages for the first addresses. Emptying the browser cache should show you the updated pages regardless of the address you type in.

    Please let us know if this does not fix the problem.

    Thanks,
