When making changes to a site, how long does it take for it to take effect? I'm making changes and dont see them as a visitor would....this really seems to be a very unstable program! Also a link works for users but, doesnt work for me, whats with that?

It takes about a second after pressing publish for the change to work, there is nothing unsatble about it, if you publish or preview your site and dont see the change right away its your browswers histroy that needs clearing.

Also links become active after publishing, what do you mean its not working for you? do you mean in the editor? this is normal - only links in a html widget work in the editor all those in text boxs or images do not... but they will work on your published site,

Hi Rizan22,

In addition to Lee's reply, if you are updating your site (click on "Update my Site"), remember to click on the Refresh button when you view your website so that you're seeing the most recent version.

If you're still not seeing the changes you expect, please post your URL so that we can take a look. If possible, could you point out the page that should be different.
