template files won't update - Macromedia Contribute General Discussion

Hi, I've just finished (is it ever really done? :grin; ) a site and having a problem with the template files. Previously, I'd uploaded a couple of test templates. Those worked fine for that but are out-of-date now. I uploaded, by ftp, the two replacement files. The new files didn't show up -- just the old ones remained.

    Default template files won't update

    Hi,
    I've just finished (is it ever really done? :grin; ) a site and having a
    problem with the template files. Previously, I'd uploaded a couple of test
    templates. Those worked fine for that but are out-of-date now. I uploaded, by
    ftp, the two replacement files. The new files didn't show up -- just the old
    ones remained. Then I deleted the two old template files and confirmed that
    they were gone. After that I uploaded one of the new template files. It
    showed up but was identical to the original file. So the question is, how do I
    get the old templates to be replaced by the new ones?
    thanks for all help.

    Hi,
    I'd tried that and just tried it again. No luck.
    More thoughts?
    thank you

    What are you trying to achieve?

    1. Are you expecting that al your existing pages will update on uploading a
    new template. I'm sorry, but Contribute does not work that way. You have to
    update all your pages using Dreamweaver.

    2. Do you want to create new pages based on the new template and that isn't
    working?

    Hi,
    No I am not expecting Contribute to do that. If there're any changes
    site-wide that need to be made, I'll download the site, make the changes there
    and then upload.
    What I'd like is to delete the existing templates that Contribute has stored
    which have re-coded locally and work.
    I can delete the templates that Contribute has on the site by FTP. I verify
    that they are gone through Contribute. Then when I upload the most recent set,
    the old ones remain. It seems like they are cached.

    The Templates are also stored on your computer, like the drafts, maybe there is
    the problem, that the refresh button does not work properly. Check this for

    that worked really well
    It is a little convoluted to implement but will be very, very handy to know and do.
    thanks a lot for the help ThinkInk
