    Working on wordpress install. When I make changes to my CSS file they are not showing up. They will show up later(maybe like 5min or 10 reloads) I have tried emptying the cache in safari and firefox. My PHP files are updating just fine.

    Do you hold the shift button when you click the refresh button? That’s usually called a hard-refresh and it has better results than regular refreshes (in a lot of browsers).


    i also heard of using a random query string to stop wordpress caching the CSS file..

    something like


    simplified example but I think that’s how the method goes, maybe someone can clarify this.


    Try what chris said, it work pretty much everytime. I still prefer to use the ol’ good Ctrl + F5 though, instead of holding Shift when I click Refresh.
