The basic problem is that your Web Browser software, typically either a Netscape product or MS Internet Explorer, or America Online (which is simply an instance of Internet Explorer) comes equipped from the factory with technology that was designed to copy Web Pages that you visit to your local hard drive. They do this to provide the illusion of speed, because when you re-visit one of these previously visited pages, your browser will render it from your local hard drive, and request very little (if any) information from the Server across the Internet. The idea? You think you are surfing the Web faster and thus are more happy. This is called caching, and the local space on your hard drive is called the cache.

Now, on some dynamic (vice static) Web Sites, a technology is used allowing the Site developers to use a single Page to contain completely different information depending upon some key parameter passed into it. It all follows the Object Oriented methodology that has brought us this far with computers... This type of Web Page you obviously would not want to cache, because it is in effect, many different pages. This is precisely what our situation is here. We wrote code that interfaces with a network database that contains our entire newsletter base. When you display the newsletter, the date is passed into that page as a parameter. This allows us to use one Web Page to display this. If we used separate Web Pages we'd have well over 2,500 by now and growing. This would be impossible to manage.

Now that you've slugged through reasons why, let's fix it. Find your Web Browser from the list below and follow the directions. Thank you!

Netscape Navigator 3.0
With the browser open -- You select the Options Menu, then Network preferences. Deselect the option to "Allow Persistent Caching of Pages Retrieved Through SSL". Choose the option to verify documents "Every Time". Adjust your cache sizes if necessary. Finally, clear the memory and disk cache. Problem solved!

Netscape Communicator 4.x
With the browser open -- You select the Edit Menu, then choose the Preferences sub menu. When the Preferences dialog box opens, click the + symbol next to the Advanced option. Highlight the Cache option. Ensure that the selection for "Document in cache is compared to document on Network" option is set to "Every time". Clear the Memory & Disk cache. Click the Ok button. Problem solved!

Internet Explorer 4.0
With the browser open -- You select the View Menu, then the Internet Options sub menu. Locate the "Temporary Internet Files" section on the dialog. Click the Settings button. Ensure that you select the option for the "Check for newer versions of stored pages" is set to "Every visit to the page". Click Ok. Now click the "Delete Files" button under "Temporary Internet Files". Click Ok. Problem solved!

Internet Explorer 5.0
With the browser open -- You select the Tools Menu, then the Internet Options sub menu. Locate the "Temporary Internet Files" section on the dialog. Click the Settings button. Ensure that you select the option for the "Check for newer versions of stored pages" is set to "Every visit to the page", or you may either choose to "Check for newer versions of stored pages" with the "Automatically" selection, or the "Every visit to the page" selection. They are both effective in this situation. Click Ok. Now click the "Delete Files" button under "Temporary Internet Files". Click Ok. Problem solved!

America Online 4.0
Load AOL 4.0. Type in the keyword "Preferences" then press "Enter" on your keyboard. Click the Preferences Guide when "My AOL" loads. When the Preferences Guide loads, click "The Web", then click "Setup Now". Locate the "Temporary Internet Files" section on the dialog. Click the Settings button. Ensure that you select the option for the "Check for newer versions of stored pages" is set to "Every visit to the page". Click Ok. Now click the "Delete Files" button under "Temporary Internet Files". Click Ok. Close the Preferences Window. Close the My AOL window. Close AOL and then Reload AOL. Problem solved!
