I've been working on my BB for a couple days. I've never really understood the whole cache/refresh thing. Whenever I've refreshed, it takes my bb back to a point long ago. Somehow, I have been okay up until now. I've been editing via the ACP rather than in the code (I'd rather be in the code) and that seems to have eliminated the need for the refresh.
Well, today I found myself needing to use refresh. Since in the past refresh has erased changed I've made, I ftp downloaded my whole style folder to my desktop using Homesite for the ftp. I figured I was safe with a clean copy saved on my computer.
I made the change, clicked refresh, and yup, it took my work way back, although the latest change was applied. I think what is happening is that I'm losing my stylesheet changes, but my template ones are sticking. No, wait, the latest change was indeed a stylesheet one. So now my stylesheet has the most recent change, but not most of the changes before that.
So I have tried uploading my saved copy of my style and I just keep seeing an outdated version of the site. So I looked at the copy I saved to my hard drive, and it doesn't have my style sheet changes! For instance, my client wanted Times New Roman for the font, and I changed that everywhere, but now, on the downloaded copy of my style, it's all Arial. When I downloaded the style folder, in the browser all fonts were Times. So why isn't that the case with my downloaded stylesheets??
I'm afraid all my work is lost. If I don't have the correct version on my computer, I'm guessing it doesn't exist anywhere.
As part of my troubleshooting, I deleted the style completely from the server. Then I uploaded and installed it again.
ARGH! Please, does anyone know if I can find the good copy of my styles anywhere, and how to avoid these confusing, horrible refresh issues in the future?
