How to Clear Cache (End Users browsers)

 

 

Overview

For any browser issues, we recommend users to clear the cache first. The reason for this is that some back-end code has been changed, and unfortunately some of this code can be cached by a browser. This means that until the cache is cleared, some users will be seeing the new skin (ODN1.5) but with cached old (ODN1.4) code in the back-end, which will result in errors and odd behavior. Clearing the cache means that the client's browser will grab the latest code from the new skin, and everything will then run correctly.
