Chrome Disk cache size

I can't get Chrome to work in the site builder and have had this problem for sometime. Just loads for ever.

Wondering if the disk cache size may be the issue?

The registry config is :
"C:\Documents and Settings\..................................\chrome.exe" -- "%1"

Should this be something else for optimal Yola builder use?

Hello Gop,

I'm apologize that we have missed this thread. I'm not sure I understand what you're asking or what you're trying to find out? Please can you explain a bit further? In the meantime, I'll consult with my colleagues about this.

Thanks Sanja,

Chrome has a cache size which isn't configurable through the options, where as other browsers have settings that can be changed.. The alteration of the Chrome cache size requires some registry tweaks. It doesn't seem to be standard in its size for some reason. I certainly haven't changed it explicitly at any time

As mentioned I just can't get Chrome to work in the builder and I have been through all the option settings and haven't come across anything that would cause a problem(?). I don't have any problem with Chrome for any other function or site and I think, as many have discovered, that FF is becoming a bit unpredictable at this stage so I would like to continue with Chrome as my building browser.

I searched for the cache settings but nothing is standardised. When I looked at my cache settings I saw that it was configured as mentioned in the post heading. I have no idea what it means and I was wondering if Yola had any information on optimal or minimal settings for the cache size in Chrome. Certainly won't get any joy on the Yola settings within the Chrome discussion groups as they wouldn't reference Yola specifically. I hope that this makes sense as I am very much winging it.

I thought that maybe I could un-install then download a fresh copy and see if that helped. It's a last resort because of stored data etc .

Hey Gop

I'm not that familiar with registry settings - have you tried to load the SitebBuilder in Firefox?

Yes Pete. I have used FF forever but the suggestion now is that FF is not as reliable by advice/opinions on this forum. I'm certainly having problems with FF particularly with the File Manager and was asked to use Chrome, but unfortunately as I've mentioned Chrome won't load the Builder at all.

It may not be the cache at all of course but I am just moving through the settings and the obvious. I won't use IE in the builder for fairly obvious reasons so somewhat stumped at this time.

Thank you for taking time in responding to this and I really would be grateful for any lead that may help me at least to understand this and hopefully resolve it.

Hello Gop,

It's just the latest version of FF that does not seem to work well at the moment. The previous versions still seem to be working well.

I am an avid using of Chrome and have not had any troubles with using this to load up the Sitebuilder. So, this is a bit puzzling!

Have you had an opportunity to try using Chrome on a different computer just to see if this makes any difference for you?

I will also bring this back to Pete's attention. Thanks for your continued patience.

I have been using Chrome because of the text centering issue on FF.
(By the way I sent them another not so kind letter concerning their machine gun like releases that not anyone can keep up with)

I have not had any problems on Chrome but I clean/clear all browsers cache at the same time with CCleaner . . . Do this a couple times a week and all is well on cache.

Hi Gop
Enter "chrome://net-internals/#httpCache" in the URL field and in the list will be a current and maximum cache size in bytes. I have in the past adjusted registry entries and see no problem as long as you back up first.
As for the browser debate I am a big Firefox fan, I'm currently using the latest version (8) and have had no problems at all, I do agree that a new stable version every 6 weeks can cause some issues but this schedule has been copied from google who have the exact same 6 week release program. Probably no need to mention IE

David thank you for this.

Doing that It says that my Chrome cache is maximum of 209 Mb Is that about ball-park?

Thanks for the info on FF too. Makes me now wonder if it's a general PC setting somewhere in the bowels and not specifically related to browsers at all. I hadn't even considered that before your information.

I'll keep working at this and it's great to have input from experienced users like yourself, KTD, Sanja and Pete.

My cache in FF is 57mb at present so you have plenty to spare.

This response is out of sequence:
Thanks David. I changed the cache size to 57 Mb but still wasn't able to open the Builder. Guess then it isn't the cache?

OK. 1/2 of the problem is solved.

I downloaded FF8.0.1 but still not able to download a folder within the File Manager which was the origin of the issue.

I then deleted Chrome completely and downloaded it fresh. It successfully opened the Builder, which is great, but this browser still won't allow me to download a Folder within the file Manager.

It looks as if it has something to do with the File Manager. I have a folder Called X and then within that folder I have about 30 other folders labelled a to z and a few others. The issue is with downloading folder X. I can download all the subfolders individually but this isn't the way it should be as this then requires manipulation of each zipped folder downloaded before you can go on to the next.

"bug" or "bear-this" ?

Not really my bag Gop so is probably best answered by Yola, what I did do is create a similar folder in my file manager to see if I could download it successfully using FF, it worked.

Thank you again David.
This issue really has me locked. I'll just have to keep at it I think and hopefully something will come clear.
It is good to know that it does function and that clears the way at least. :)
