SharePoint 2007 - Users can't see my changes

I'm not at all a SharePoint administrator but I was asked to change the custom homepage of my company's Intranet since I'm the only one in-house who has done anything with SharePoint at all. (Before this the extent of my knowledge was custom lists.)

I managed to successfully edit a page (HomeLayout.aspx) with SharePoint Designer 2007 and through some miracle I checked it in and published it. However, I'm the only one able to see the changes. The page has a status of "Published and visible to all readers" and it is a major version (15.0). The web part changes that I made through SharePoint itself are visible, just not the page design changes made through SharePoint Designer.

Anyone know where I went wrong and what I need to do? I can get you any information you need if you let me know where to get it. I only barely know what things like a master page and web part is, so please excuse my lack of knowledge on the technology.

Thanks in advance!

I believe I found the answer, so for anyone else who runs into this: You have to save the file, synchronize it with the remote site in SharePoint Designer, then (this is the part I didn't know about) in SharePoint go to Site Settings --> Master Page Gallery --> find the page, go to the options menu for the page, and Publish as major version.

I'm sure there's good reason for all of this but it's not at all intuitive. Hopefully SharePoint 2013 will be easier when we move to it.
