Why is the version of my website that appears when using the links in Publishing Settings different from the one I'm working on and is saved.

I have built a site on Yola and whilst doing so - used the preview function. So the pages are saved and the preview looks fine.

However when I use the "Update my site" - publishing settings function it shows me the two web addresses that my site is available at - one address I bought and already owned (this is now pointing at the Yola address) and the other is the Yola address. When I click on either of these the website shown is a version much earlier then I am working on.

Can you explain how to publish the latest version and of course not lose any of the work completed.

Please could you post your site's URL so that we can take a look?

Marije, you are a magician. I just went to copy and paste the links for the two versions and the issue is now resolved. I think it must take time for the actual site to see the worked on site.
Thanks you :>)

Ian - whats probably happening is your browser is holding a cached version of the page.

As soon as you hit 'update my site' the new version is live and any changes can be viewed.
