Clearing browser cache

From EPESI framework documentation
Jump to: navigation, search

After upgrading EPESI to the latest version some cached files (javascript, css) may not update. When using old version of files the layout may be broken or an application is not working correctly. Clearing your browser cache will cause the browser to load the latest versions of these files and will fix such problems.

Here are instructions with screenshots on how to do it for particular browsers.
