Site Updates and FTP

Just a general question about updating my published site and what files should be uploaded via FTP. I have made changes to various pages on the website.


As an example, I changed the order of my thumbnails on the home page. When I preview the site prior to publishing I don't see an issue. However, when I go out to my browser it doesn't look like what I am expecting. I have cleared the cache prior to viewing.

    As a failsafe, I have found that when making any change to the site, I re-upload EVERYTHING - but then again, my sites are not very large. I just hit upload and overwrite and go get a coffee.


    However, if your site it too big to re-load every time, I would re-load: thepageinquestion.html, thepageinquestion.css and any and all of the image files associated with the page again as well as the index.html and muse_manifest.xml for good measure. I believe that should do it.


    Really though, if you're changing multiple pages, it's more time consuming but idiot-proof just to re-load everything. There are been many questions on the forums about sites not displaying and behaving correctly, only for the poster to discover that they failed to re-load some element of the exported Muse data/ documents.

    Choose "Overwrite if Source is Newer" - that was you're guaranteed to get the latest version on your FTP. Sometimes choosing "Different Size" won't result in a newer file if it's exactly the same in terms of file size.


    I hope this helps, let me know if it's been successful or not.
