    Staff Icon How to Clear Your Cache

    If you load partway up, or you cannot access the page at all (including the 400 error), the best place to start is always with a good cache-clearing.
    Please follow the directions for your browser below:

    Internet Explorer

    At the top left, click on Tools then Internet Options.
    Click on the General Tab on the window that opens.
    Under Browsing History, click on Delete.
    Now, close your browser. (This is very important...your cache is not fully clear until you do!)
    Reopen your browser and type the website address you want into the address bar. Do NOT use a bookmark or a tab that has opened automatically.


    Mozilla Firefox

    At the top left, click on Tools then Options.
    Click on the Advanced tab, then the Network tab under that, then Clear Now.
    Now click on the Privacy tab up top in that window.
    Click on Show Cookies and then Remove All Cookies.
    Click OK to close the window.
    Now, close your browser. (This is very important...your cache is not fully clear until you do!)
    Reopen your browser and type the website address you want into the address bar. Do NOT use a bookmark or a tab that has opened automatically.


    If anyone would like to PM me the instructions for other browsers, I'd be happy to add them to this guide.

    Many thanks to WN1 Hit for Chrome instructions:

Check 'Empty the Cache' and 'Delete Cookies and other site data', then press Clear Browsing history. It takes more time clearing unlike Mozilla though, so if you have lots of cookie and cache data, most likely you will run into a 30 second wait..


    I hope that helps for google chrome.
    And to Pythonian for Safari instructions:
