I updated my files and saved, but the old version displays
Mood:  not sure
I updated my files and saved them in the web shell. If I view them from the web shell all the changes are there and everything is fine. However if I browse to my website the old pages are still displayed.

I have my browser set to always download pages each visit (instead of bringing them from cache). I also used the refresh button but the old pages are still being served instead of the new version.

I opened a ticket with Angelfire support but they simply closed it saying the subject is covered on the support pages. Sorry, I couldn't find anything covering this there.

Can someone help?

Hi Ron,

I visited your page @ URL:
https://www.angelfire.com/electronic2/rcl/ and checked out the
following links, which are all producing a 404 error message:


Have you made sure that your files have been uploaded into
the proper directories & sub-directories, with the correct
file names?

If so, you shouldn't have any problem accessing them with
the URLs mentioned above.

Good luck.

If your 'browser (is) set to always download pages each visit (instead of bringing them from cache)." then a likely reason for outdated pages is that your ISP is caching pages for faster delivery. You can find more info with a google search for 'ISP caching'.

Your pages in their most recent form are most likely turning up for visitors using ISP's that do not cache pages... IOW the problem may affect only you and not your visitors.

Thanks for bringing the link errors to my attention. I went back in to correct them and realized that the problem "updating" my pages was due to a target in one of my frame pages pointing to an old page similar to the one I was updating.

I have since removed the frames (because of the Angel Fire ad boxes showing up in each frame section) and went with a simple index page.

Thanks CW and all the others. Good comments from all.

I was using frames. The page that I thought was to display in the "main" frame area was actually an old page that should have been deleted from the directory a long time ago. I was editing a similarly named page and it was getting updated, but the index frame was calling up the old unedited page. A simple edit of the target in the index.html page would have fixed it, however:

I have dropped the frames idea and gone back to a simple index page and all is well again. The frames was not working out well because of the ad boxes that appeared in each frame section.
