So, while I am working on a remote server on an external style sheet, I often run into the problem of saving changes to the css file and not seeing the browser reflect the changes. This often happens after a while of dev'in.

Even after I clear the browser cache, it doesn't seem to affect the css file. What do you guys recommend I do to avoid this kinda of caching nonsense.

Thanks

It isn't usually a problem

It isn't usually a problem with Fireox. I set my privacy to clear most things except the cookies.

Then I have CookieCuller which protects the cookies I want and kills the others. I simply clear private data. done.

For IE, you are right, it is a real mess. I use ILSystemWiper which does the job properly. You don't need to close IE when it does it either.

I only do this IF Ctrl + F5 doesn't work when refreshing a page.

Haven't you heard of FireOx? It's Firefox's stronger browser companion, useful for table-heavy sites with tonnes of JS and Flash that bring FF to a crawl.

hehehehe, FireOx, I'm gonna have to market that Laughing out loud

@WolfCry, how long does it

@WolfCry, how long does it take you to do that stuff?

@OP ...
- in most browsers, shift+reload will force the browser to completely renew the page.
- in IE, ctrl+refresh does the same thing.

Completely renewing the page should force the browser to get fresh copies of all page assets, eg. images, javascript & css.

If you are really tricked up, you can set the headers the server will return for the CSS file to tell the browser not to cache it. I can't say whether or not that will have any effect (it should). Shift/ctrl + reload/refresh is easy enough for me.

Oh the youth of today.

Never read classic books. Watch the dvd's instead and think that's OK. In fairness, the films weren't bad, but the books are so much better.

I dunno - I enjoyed reading

I dunno - I enjoyed reading the hobbit... Tolkien is a pretty colorful writer. James Joyce is what I'd call a boring read.

Yeah, my problem was the combination of several things. For one I was using ie partially, second I had to screw around with the asp.net caching settings, then I added some meta no cache data to the header of the masterpage and I was able to finally see a consistent result.

Stupid asp.net....

A few suggestions were made but has no response was received from the OP Wink so it left the thread open for hijacking something we are past masters at Smile

Now as for that absolutely absurd comment about Tolkien being a bit of a boring read I'm just flabergasted, and can't possibly take the remark seriously. Smile

Certainly not the Lord of the Rings, which is a real page turner for me. I did skip the poems first time through, though.

Now the Silmarilion, that's an alltogether different matter.

Let's go with #9, as this incarnation has not so amateurish special effects. The story lines are just as silly and the new guy is totally annoying with the stupid grin. Not a favorite series with me.

Catching up

@Jenni: It is good that you found a combination that works for you.

@Chris: Medium? I can't seem to generate any interest, so I hope not.

@TPH: What? The Thin Blue Line? I wouldn't consider that SciFi.

I'm guessing An Inconvenient Truth. It purports to be science, and it is highly fictional. Laughing out loud

cheers,
