Not Solved [Performance] Forum not updating when I edit CSS
Not Solved
Hi I have a problem, its always worked fine but as of lately, when I do changes to the theme I have installed, it takes a while to show changes, when I edit templates it does the changes fine, but when its the CSS that I edit, it takes a while, sometimes a around 5-10 minutes, sometimes even longer than that

I tried with different browsers but it seems to be the same, is there a fix to this? I'd appreciate if someone can help me, thanks!

Thank you, I will try that but I have a question.. will that reset any of my templates/css edits? should I back them up first? thanks!

are you using a proxy like cloudflare? It is also worth checking if you are caching your js css etc in a htaccess file. Running the tool as suggested by zukro will not harm your templates.

I just tried the Rebuild & Reload All option as suggested but it didnt work, im not using cloudflare or anything like that, I think its available from the hosting where I have my forum but I havent installed it or setting it up or anything like that, only installed mybb and themes, some plugins too, thats all

I have 2 htaccess on my root folder: htaccess.txt and another one, should I post it here?

If you are using Cloudflare, activate Development mode, since Cloudflare is stupid.

Post your .htaccess file here

It must be your browser cache. Try ctrl + F5 in your browser once you have completed the CSS edits.

I tried the ctrl+F5 but its still not updating, not using cloudflare either, but here is my htaccess, by the way, my htaccess file name doesnt have a dot at the beginning, should I rename it to .htaccess?

Which ISP, OS ? I have seen such problems happen until your ISP removes the cache. I cannot recall correctly but there is one Windows command to get rid of it.
