    The changes re not coming up on the main site which I make from admin backend

    However once I login with admin details I can see the changes

    Not sure we’re going to be able to help with this one.

    What changes have you made?

    Are they only viewable by administrators etc?

    Yes :(

    >Are they only viewable by administrators etc?

    What I mean is…is that the setting..not the effect?

    In some CMS the content is only viewable based on the user’s role…without knowing what the ‘change’ is we can’t help.

    Frankly, I think that without being able to access the back end ourselves we’re going to have real trouble with this one.

    Fixed it

    – Login to your Joomla administrator.
    – Go to “Tools”=> “Clean Cache”.
    – Click on “Site” (on the menu below, it is next to “Administrator”) .
    – Click the main checkbox to select all the cached items.
    – Click on “Delete” on the upper right menu.
    – Now that you’ve cleared your website’s cache, it is a good time to also clear your backend’s cache.
    – On the same page, click on “Administrator”.
    – Click the main checkbox to select all the cached items (you can also select each item individually, but since you’re already there it’s better to clean all the cache).
    – Again, click on “Delete”.

    Now if you’re working on your Joomla website and you’re making changes to your templates/extensions every 5 minutes, it’s better to temporarily disable caching altogether, here’s how:

    – Go to “Site”, “Global Configuration” on the menu above.
    – Click on “System” on the menu below.
    – Change the “Cache” value (under “Cache Settings”, in the middle right of the page) to “No”.
    – Click on “Save” on the top menu.
