scrambled / distorted text on my website (3 posts)

    I used the newest version of Fetch to upload my iweb website folder and index. It's an older version of iweb (2006. v 1.1.2). The transfer seems to go fine but the text on quite a few of the pages is in the wrong place and/or grossly distorted. (see I did any rearranging of pages in iweb only. Interestingly any new pages are fine ... it's some of the older content that seems to have had issues. I did replace all the links at the bottom of every page, so I am not sure why some are scrambled and some are not.

    Hi Carolyn,

    I took a look at your website and everything looks fine to me, but I didn't look at every page.

    You should try emptying your web browser's cache (see instructions below) and check you webpages again - it may be that your web browser is showing you partially out of date information, and emptying the cache will force it to load completely new copies of your webpages from the server. if you're still having a problem after you do that, please send a link to one of the pages that has the problem and I'll see if we can advise further.
