Hi

I have an issue on a site I'm developing. Basically I've created a new theme, each time I load the page I'm adding the '?flush=1' text to the end of the URL.
Although this is clearing the html cache it isn't refreshing the CSS.

I have created a directory called 'silverstripe-cache' in the root of my installation as recommended on a website I visited some time ago. Basically I've cleared the files in this directory too..... and still I have had no luck.

Anyone got any ideas? (apart from creating a new CSS file and then renaming the link to it accordingly - but surely I should'nt have to go this far to just make a small change to the CSS on my site????)

Kind Regards

Peter

If the system is including the correct CSS file(s), it is probably a browser issue. Try manually clearing your browser-cache.

Try pressing CTRL + R or CTRL + F5 to do a forced refresh and clear your browser cache.

Yep SS does not touch your CSS cache (well at least most of the time). While developing a lot of us use the webdeveloper toolbar for firefox. This allows you to disable css caching. Handy!.

Tried all the browsers, FF, Chrome, Safari... But all show the old css file.
The latest css is on my server, when i can download it from the and compare the code it is the latest one..

THE PROBLEM WAS:
I uploaded the layout.css in the images folder (!) Somehow SS knew this and changed the path... So it looked uploading the latest css to the correct directory.
