Site content shows different from WP site that when using browser directly (4 posts)

    Hi,
    I would like to ask for help to explain/solve the following phenomena:
    Everything I do in WordPress, write, create, change etc. and update... when checking result via “visit site” from WP menu, shows accurately on my site, so no problem there. But to
    my chagrin I discovered that when I TYPE my domain name, which is obviously identical in a browser (I use Safari and Firefox) I see (but not always) not identical content. I could not believe it.
    Identical domain shows different content. So for example, some changes do not show as being updated, when looking at site via “Visit site” from WP, all was perfectly changed. In a menu, there are subcategories shown that I have deleted while ago and thus do not exist in my WP any more. When I click on such a subcategory, it shows error, article could not be found (of course not, it has been placed under newly created category because this one actually doesn’t exist...) So how could it survived still here showing itself to public when I removed it??) All this is beyond my understanding and to be honest, drives me crazy. Please, if anyone knows what I am talking about, or knows explanation, solution, please, share it with me. I lost so much time on this, I called server, hosting co. and called Internet provider, to flush cache (this was suggestion of server people) I spent whole day just on cleaning things, you name it, no change... The irony of it is, that sometimes browser shows it accurately. When that happen I thought; oh, finally it got fixed. But if I try few minutes later, there you go.... same problem. How can i know now what public could see. I spend time to do something and something else shows publicly.
    Thank you so much for your time and I wait anxiously for the “genius” that would
    figure this out...
    My warmest regards, Maya

    Remember to press CTRL and F5 simultaneously when viewing an updated page/site. Or try emptying your browser cache. This should ensure that your web browser fetches a fresh copy of the page rather than serving up an out-dated copy from your own cache.

    Thank you so much, I didn't expect any response...
    I certainly clean cache, no problem, but CTRL and F5 is a bit different for me, having Mac system. F5 here is for increasing volume. Do you happen to know what to do in my case though?
    Again, thanks... and BTW I love your gravatar, it surely symbolizes all the worries collected on these pages that hair could stand up. :)
    Best to you,
    Regards, Maya
