View Full Version : CSS and MAC(safari browser)

07-29-2011, 10:57 PM
Using a MacBook Air(safari browser) with latest MAC OSX(not Lion.)

While I code my HTML using a style sheet in CSS, I have to place the files into a new folder every time I make a change to see the results. This took me a while to figure out(pulled a lot of hair out.) There is no way, I can keep working like this, moving files around every time I make a font change, etc.

I want to be able to keep my index.txt, index.html, style.txt and style.css in the same folder, make changes, save and replace files and see the results.

Anyone familiar with this problem? Is it possible to fix this problem? Is MAC not able to provide me with this capability? Someone please help.

Thank You

I’m sorry but I have no idea what you’re talking about. Are you looking at the files locally or on a remote server? Why would you have to move around files? You’d just edit the current ones? Or am I not understanding something here?

I don't understand either. Is your F5 key broken or something?

Thank you for comments.

New finding: If I empty my cache every time I make a change, they can be viewed. I obviously don't want to have to empty my cache every time I want to view a change. Any suggestions? Thanks

Apparently Safari doesn’t allow manual changes in terms of cache usage anymore. But you can always do a “hard refresh” (refresh ignoring the temporary files, loading everything again) by holding the “Shift” key and pressing the refresh button. Or you use a different browser (like Firefox, for example) as your primary browser for development.
