Hi Jay2825,

Which site and page are you working on and what should I see on the live site?  Did you go to the page and hit the f5 key on the keyboard?

Thanks

Drew

You can also look for this icon in your browser near the address bar.  It will do a refresh as well.

I changed browsers and it came right up. It's still is always a pain to upload when you get the Homestead TEMP website and then it gets stuck in your browser. Actually, I'm getting tired of Homestead and I've been with them since it was free...like 14 or 15 years. Thanks for everyone's help!

I am sorry for the frustration, but this must have been a cache issue that will occur from time to time on all sites.  If the refresh doesn't work, then it is likely corrupted temporary files and the browser needs a complete clearing of the temporary files.  This corruption possibility is one reason why there is an option in all browsers to clear the history.

There are other choices. I'm not ready to learn another program.

Again you are correct.  Everyone's needs are different.  Many of our customers have left and come back to us, many have come from other hosts and loved us.  Some have outgrown us, or simply had needs that we don't fill.  If your business has needs that we can't provide, then maybe someone else does.  This is a decision each business owner needs to make, as the act of changing hosts can also be a large expense in time and money.

We are a very good solution for many people, but this has gone well off topic for the Homestead community.  It is not an appropriate place for a discussion about competing hosting companies.  If you would like to continue the conversation, then perhaps you can exchange email addresses.

Thanks

I get it Drew. Actually, I'm interested in building a new site using the wider format. I don't know if I need to buy a new template and domain name or if I'll be able to develop the new template and launch it with the same domain name. I'm thinking of a shopping cart too but I'm hoping to rough out the new site first. There's really no menu choice for this option.  www.napasewandvac.com

I just gave your site a pretty good look through, and to me, if you are looking to start over, I would not go with a simple shopping cart.  I would switch to a full ecommerce solution.  We are a reseller for Bigcommerce, but again, there are others.  You have many pages all with great descriptions and prices on them.  You can have all the same with a Storefront, but it would essentially add a cart button and allow purchasing directly from the site.

When we had to switch ecommerce providers about a year ago, we did some exhaustive research and felt that Bigcommerce offered the best overall solution.  To me, using our service or another, that is the type of site you probably should be looking to create.

If you have any questions about Bigcommerce, feel free to explore our Bigcommerce category and post any questions there.  You can also call our team to ask questions directly, but in any case, I believe you would be better off going in that direction.

Sorry if I wasn't clear.  The Storefront powered by Bigcommerce is a completely different piece of software.  It is not part of Sitebuilder.  I was just letting you know that if you are considering restarting your site from scratch, then I would seriously consider a product like Storefront, instead of a website building option.  It will give you good flexibility and the ability to easily sell online.

Unfortunately, it would also create a load of work, as your site is quite large, but I do believe it is more appropriate for your particular style of web presence.  This is just my opinion.  You are the expert on your business and maybe you don't want to go fully online for ecommerce, but just letting you know that the option is there.

You can read some of our community topics for Storefront powered by Bigcommerce.

Can I build a new site using the wider format and add Bigcommerce later?

Actually, while you can build a Sitebuilder site and add the store later, you don't need to.  The store can be a standalone site with informational and product pages.

Furthermore, you can select from many different templates, some of which are responsive in design, so you need not worry about changing page widths.  It will size itself to the browser size on each persons computer.

It will also automatically create a mobile template for the store to make it easier for people to purchase from mobile devices.
