Preview in browser shows old versions


When I make changes to my Hype project, the browser preview doesn´t update, but shows an older version. I guess this has to do with som cache stuff, but I need som help here.

What browser are you using?

Edit: this page outlines how to clear your browsers cache on most browsers.


Thanks for your quick response :slight_smile: I´m using Firefox and Safari. I´ll try to clear the cache, and I can´t get it right.

I think the instructions on the site I linked to might be a bit outdated…

In Safari, go to Preferences > Advanced and then select the show develop menu in menu bar option at the bottom of the screen. Then you can just press Command + Option + E to clear the cache which is really convenient.


Do you use Cloudflare? (If so, go into development mode)
Another thing that might be causing the issue is if you have long expire headers for JS files, or if the ?348398 number was removed from the Hype embed code. This number is a query string which tells the browser to redownload the JS file each time the page is loaded.

If that isn’t it, can you share a link?
