One way to make sure you get the newest version of a web page is to clear your web browser page cache. This article will describe how to clear the browser page cache.
What is page cache?
When you visit a site on the Internet, the browser will sometimes save images and other content from that site to your computer. The information that is saved for the web page you are viewing is saved to the page cache.
When page cache is created the web page loads faster because part of the web page is saved to your local storage and will be loaded the next time you visit that page. Loading part of the page from local storage - from the page cache- is faster than loading the entire page from the website.
Why do I need to clear my page cache?
If the web page has content that has changed since you last visited the page then the page cache for that page should update automatically and you should see the newest content on the page, but this does not always happen.
If you know that an order page has recently been updated but you are not able to see the new images or text, you should manually clear your page cache and reload the page. You can easily do this by following the steps below.
