pb update

I'm using the milonic xp menu on a regular basis: it's now online and is working well.
However, I've noticed that whenever I'm trying to update files (menu_data.js) or trying to add data, and then transferring those data(FTP), the update is not taken into account immediately.
Concerning modifications: locally, on my PC, I use the note-pad.
What could be the origin of my problem?
Is there a system that delays any update during the process and that could account for my trouble.
Thanks for your time,

j'utilise le menu milonic xp, il est actuellement en ligne et fonctionne bien. Je constate que lorsque je fais une mise à jour ou un ajout dans ce menu, puis que je transfère (FTP), la mise à jour n'est pas prise en compte.

Précision : je fais les modifications, en local, en utilisant le bloc-note.

Existe-t-il un système de cache qui expliquerait ce décalage ?
Quel peut-être l'origine du pb ?
Merci d'avance

There is nothing as far as the menu is concerned. Once you ftp anything to your server it should be available immediately on your site.

The only thing to be careful of is to make sure you save the .js files as straight text, AND upload them to your server as text (not 'automatic' or 'binary', or whatever else your ftp program may allow).

Bonjour bernard,

The cache of the browser could keep the js-file in the memory for a while. Even a proxy could delay the updated file.

about a mistery

Sorry but I follow exactly your indications about the transfert of my menu_data.js (save as straight txt, upload as txt) and I notice the same problem : the update is not taken into account immediatly.

When I write the adresse of the menu on line I note that it's not the last version I upload. I asked my supplier of access Internet but there's not any system of mask.

I also removed the temporary files in my navigator.

what's wrong ?

I would suggest scrounging a bit of web space with another provider to see if the same thing is happening.

It sounds to me like either there is a delay in your web server updating the files, or the pages are cached in your computer preventing you from seeing the changes.

My guess is cache. Hold down the Shift key and hit the Refresh button while Shift is still down. That should force a reload from the server, rather than cache.
