I have recently updated my products area on my website and previewed and published it, but when I log out and view it from my computer or any other computer the updates don't show up and it looks like how it did before I changed it. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make the changes appear?

If you follow the steps above and still have a problem, it could be something/code imbedded into the image files. We see this on occasion with pictures that come from Iphones. You can usually just change the file extension, ie' .jpg to .jpeg, or vice versa, then re-save the file, and re-import it to the page and republish the page.

Getting disconnected when calling the 800 number.


I am trying to replace a picture on one of my website pages - it shows the correct picture on the page I am working on but when I publish it it doesn't show on the website page. Also, when I try to call the 800 number - I get the message to hold because the line is very busy (which I understand) but then I am disconnected and have to dial again. This happens over and over. Help!

First check the steps on this page. If you still have problems, open the image file on your computer, change the file extension from .jpg to .jpeg (or .png gif etc). Then re-save the file. Delete the old image from the page and import the image under the new name, and republish. I'm not sure if the image was taken with an Iphone or Ipad but this may be the cause.

Content Does Not Match Up Right.


When I add content in Homesite Builder and then publish my website the content I have added is entirely different areas of the page then where I put it.

This has caused me when building my website to arrange content in Homesite builder in very bizarre spots just so it looks okay when published online.

I hope that makes sense.

Q's - What am I doing wrong? How can this be fixed so designing can become much easier?

Where's my page?.


One of my pages, when my site is published, does not show up -- that page is blank -- but not blank when I am managing the web site. What's up with that? How do I get that page to show???

My webpage is not recording the changes I am making to it..


I will add in new information, images and text on my webpage and when I click on preview, after save, the preview displays the webpage before any of my changes and it is the same with the publish function. It appears that none of my changes are being recorded.

The computer remembers websites and do not reload from the server. Therefore you must click on the circle arrow in the address space just before the x in close the webpage, must be refreshed after each update to your website publish button. Got that??

Thanks for sharing! For anyone who might be using a browser and can't find the arrow, or perhaps has a different refresh button, you can also select the F5 key on a PC. This will also refresh the screen.

Clear your cache first, just to make sure that is not the problem, then proceed with the other steps above.

The very first time you publish, it may take just a few minutes, but after that, it will be almost instant. So, if you are still having problems, follow the steps above.

Publishing.


I'm extremely aggravated with Homestead and managing my website. Nothing is publishing that I edit and save on site builder. I've gone into my files and published them manually, and still nothing! I have announcements linking to my website and it's making me look bad.

This is most likely a caching issue. Follow the steps above, but try clearing the cache first.

I've spent two days working on my website. All the pages are done. But when I look at the site, the pages aren't there. Only the home page shows up. The rest say the page isn't available. What happened? When I'm in website manager I can see everything

First check the things above. If you still have problems, then double check your hyperlinks to make sure they are linked to the correct page names.
