    Cookie anyone?

    Does anyone share this problem...and if so, how do you resolve it?

    I've set up WampServer on my home PC to provide a development server. However, I'm constantly tinkering with minor changes on my pages and as I use Notepad++, I then use http://localhost/filename to view the changes (rather than use the likes of design view in Dreamweaver).

    The problem I have is that IE7 remembers that I've viewed the page before and often just reloads it without implementing the changes. I'm not sure if this is cookies or cache. Please excuse my terminology, I'm a learning newbie.

    Now...I can get round this by using Tools > Delete Browsing History, but that is becoming a complete pain in the @rse, as I do it so often.

    I also think it may be possible instruct IE not to keep the browsing history in the first place (although I don't know how to do this). That said, it is useful for some things - like not having to sign in to sitepoint forums every time I'm stuck, which is a lot!

    I'd appreciate your advice.

    You could also try a hard-refresh (CTRL+F5).

    I think you'll have to change your tagline SilverBullet...I'd suggest;

    "Clearing headaches without the use of pills, gratis!"

    Thanks also Rockiey for your reply.
