Replied to Subsite of my subdomain? (is that the right term?) by Lisa Koster (Extend Activity Bank)

A response to the Adding a Self Contained Site with File Manager Activity

So this was a bit different for me. This year I am doing everything within the camp2019.learn4growth.com site, so I had to look at slightly different places for the files and to create the subdirectory.

It was a great test to see if I remembered anything from last year.

I added a directory called “Subsite” and uploaded the zip file.  Once extracted, it created the site easily.

Changing the information by editing the index file was straightforward.  I used the visual editor. no HTML required.

Changing the pictures was a different story.  I changed them as the directed, but for some reason the pictures weren’t changing. I changed browsers, and it worked. I went “incognito” and it also worked.

I am guessing that it wasn’t truly re-loading the pictures (although the text was changed).

I think I will have to explore the HTML UP (https://html5up.net/) now!

Lisa, the pictures didn’t refresh in your browser because they were cached within it. (This typically means that pages you visit often don’t need to re-download everything each time.)

If you had cleared your cache (Google it to see how for your particular browser), they would have updated immediately the way they did in a different browser or in “incognito” mode because those two didn’t have those same photos cached.
