I'm using GitHub Pages for my website at this specific site: https://ludomath.net/LA/vectors.html. The problem is that whenever I push new files on GitHub, the CSS files do not update on the site. It just uses an older version. I tried making changes to the HTML file, and that works perfectly, but the CSS file still stays behind and loads an old version. It has been about 1 hour since I pushed the last changes, and it still doesn't load the new CSS file.
Just to be clear: the CSS file is updated on GitHub, but the actual website does not use the updated file. The CSS file can be found here: https://github.com/dexterAndre/LudoMath/tree/gh-pages/Common
This problem seems to have many causes and fixes, but none have worked for me, so that's why I'm asking here. I'm pretty new to web development, so please excuse me if I'm missing something obvious.
So I've waited for about 3 hours, and finally the changed were made. I worked with some other files in the meantime, but I don't know if that was the solution. The problem that the HTML file does update quickly, while the CSS file doesn't update before 3 hours still persists, and I'm still interested in hearing how I can improve the CSS update speed for GitHub pages.
When I first started using GitHub pages, I also had the same experience. It is not GitHub’s fault, instead it is your browser. The solution to this is by going to your browser settings and reset cache and cookies. This should work.
Another way of doing this is by using Git. You make your changes on your local desktop, and see what the website looks like by opening index.html . Then you can git push it to github and be rest assured that it will be like what you saw in your local desktop.
I have tried deleting the cookies and resetting the cache in Chrome, but it doesn't help. Also, I'm using both GitHub for Desktop and also directly modifying the file on the GitHub website itself, but none of these work, unfortunately.
Even I faced the same.
I think its due to caching in their servers. For me, it took between 15-40 minutes.
GitHub pages should provide some way to avoid it.
About 4 hours and no updates happening. The files updated immediately in the repo, but not on the hosted page.
Finally the page updated....
I am experiencing the same problem.
When I use git to upload, the changes are only noticeable in incognito mode. But when I upload directly to github, the changes are noticeable after about 5 minutes.
