I have inherited a messy situation.

Please look at http://www.thesource-online.com/local-distributors.php.

Note the dropdown "Select a state". The customer wants to add a distributor in Louisiana.

I attach the source of local-distributors,php & local-distributors.php and Sprydata.js. Note in the 2nd file there is a dropdown of XML files for each state. Since Louisiana was 18, I found that file & edited it to add the new distributor. See attached 18.xml, I posted the NEW 18.xml on the site in the right folder.

When you run it it shows the old version. of course I did a refresh, still the same.

How can I get this change to "take"?
distributors-list.php
local-distributors.php
SpryData.js
18.xml

It is still probably a caching problem.  Secondary files get cached also but there is nothing in the main file to tell the browser they have been changed.  Open 'assets/xml/18.xml' directly in your browser and then go back to that page and see if it is now correct.

Dave Baldwin,

Nope, till the same (on the site).

Opening the xml file shows the correct things.

Thanks

To Dave Baldwin,

If you open it, are there 5 distributors in Louisiana? Or 4?

Thanks

It is somehow a cacheing issue.

I opened it in Chrome, it's there.

Thanks,

Richard

Yes, I get 5 listed for Louisiana.  That page is hard for me to read with gray text on a gray background.  Contrast is kind of poor.
