Q: I don’t see recent changes to the State Website, such as links to this month’s Newsletter … why is that?”

A: If you’re not aware of this, your browser keeps a copy of each page as it was when you previously looked at it in a “cache”, which helps it to be more efficient than refreshing it every time you go there. So this means that if there have been edits to the page since you last looked at it, you have to go into the “settings” of your browser and clear the cache so that it will refresh it with a new view. I have to do it all the time when I’m working on the website, so that I will see any changes I just made.


I use Chrome, and this is how to do it there (if you use IE or some other browser, you’ll have to Google “clearing the cache” for your browser).


First, close any windows you have open to the State website … this is important otherwise the rest will not be effective!


In the Chrome browser, there is a little icon at the top right for accessing the menu (the Arrow in an orange circle) …


Select “Settings” from the menu to open the Settings page and select, “Clear browsing data” from the “Privacy and security” section.


In the pop-up window, check only the box that says “Cached images and files”


Notice that the default time range is “Last hour” … you might want to change that to “Last 24 hours” or whatever is appropriate.
Then press “Clear data”.


Now when you access the website you should see any recent changes.
