I cannot find a topic with regards to the reason for clearing the cache with the Yola builder.

The cache filling up and being responsible for problems is almost unique to Yola I think, certainly have never come across it on any other website. In talking with other Yola users I've heard some ask "What is it with the cache clearing business with Yola?"

Wondering if one of your tech people could give the backgrounds and reason behind it and if this is almost systematic and seems to be a significant cause and an easy solution to problems then why isn't it delt with within the program of the builder itself?

Cache is used to store data so that it can be accessed faster the next time it is viewed. In terms of Yola, you can understand how problems could arise with this. With data constantly being changed, content being added/removed means the cache is being used a lot.

I'm not an engineer or anything, and I can't exactly answer WHY some issue occur, but I can understand how they could relate to cache. I too would be interested to hear more about how this affects the Yola web builder.

Each time you access a file through your web browser, the browser caches (i.e., stores) it. Caching is not unique to Yola. It applies to all websites. As Brandon mentioned above, cache is used to store data so that it can be accessed faster the next time it is viewed.

Thank you Brandon and Boome. I guess that the issue is the problems caused by a filled cache in the Yola builder and this not being obvious on other sites?

No...The cache is on your computer and at times it can prevent you from interfacing properly with the Yola site builder.This does happen with other online site builders also, and I speak from experience.In fact the number one reason for anyone's browser running consistently slow or not working properly is the browser cache/temp files not being cleared on a regular basis.Not only can problems arise because the cache is too large but also because we pick up harmful files as we surf the web.Clearing your browser cache/temp files should be part of your routine computer maintenance....We as site builders just need to do it more often than the average user
