  2. Click on the 'System' menu item (top left-hand side of the screen) and then click on 'Clear Cache'
  3. A new page will be displayed and a list of items will be shown. Tick the top box, to select all of the items, and then click on the 'Delete' button and then go to the next step. If no items are listed, do not worry just carry on to the next step.
  4. Now click on the 'System' menu again and this time click on 'Purge Expired Cache'
  5. Once the page has loaded, click on the 'Purge expired' button
  6. Your site's cache has now been cleared. Go back to the front end of your web site - - and refresh the page. Hopefully the problems that you were experiencing have disappeared. If not, let us know!
