    PHP - preview in browser.

    cripaustin Level 1
      Am i right in saying that if you preview a php file for the first time in the your browser, the results should be as expected, but if you edit the php file, save it, and simply refresh in the browser, nothing should actually change there?...You have to cross the tab off completely and then 'preview in browser' again to get the expected results?

      Thanks. Chris

          If you are previewing with Temp files enabled then yes. If you are
          previewing with Temp files disabled then no.

                If you have preview with temp files enabled, you cannot refresh the preview
                after making changes. Each change would require you to preview again.
                That's a drag. On the other hand, your root relative links will all work
                when you preview. Take your pick....
