Frequently Asked Question #160. Why can't I see the most recent version of a page? Why won't my journal or friends page update?
If you aren't seeing the most recent versions of LiveJournal pages, you are most likely viewing an old version of the page in your browser cache. Specific examples include recent updates not showing on your friends page or a message that your LiveJournal updates were successful before making any updates.
First, click your web browser's Refresh or Reload button. Next, perform a "hard" or "forced" refresh, if your browser supports this. Depending on browser and operating system, this may done by pressing Ctrl+F5 or Cmd+Shift+R, or shift-clicking the Refresh button; consult your browser's documentation for the correct method. Then, clear your browser's cache; for instructions on clearing your browser's cache, read your browser's documentation or the list at the end of this FAQ.
If clearing your browser cache doesn't resolve the problem, your Internet Service Provider (ISP), or other organization providing your internet connection, may also cache data using a proxy server. You may need to contact your ISP for more information and assistance.
How to clear your cache depends on the browser you use, and sometimes on the browser version or operating system. The list below covers common combinations; if yours isn't in that list, you will need to read available documentation for your browser, consult its technical support resources, or use an Internet search engine to locate that information.
