    Whenever I upload an updated CSS file there is a twenty minute or so delay before the update goes live. My HTML document is reading the CSS file fine and I can update the HTML, even the content stylized by CSS, just fine.

    I thought maybe it was a FTP file client issue or a text editing software issue but I've tried various software alternatives with the same result.

    My CSS file and HTML document are simple; no errors.

    Any ideas what could be causing this issue?

    Probably just need to clear your browser cache as it might still be using an older version of the CSS file. I usually find refreshing the page a couple of times does the trick.

    Ctrl Shft R or Ctrl F5 to do a forced refresh (not utilizing your cache) is what I use.

    i agree with those other two posts about refreshing cache.. but ifyou really wanna be sure its pulling the latest and greatest you can add a version to your css file..

    <link type="text/css" src="/content/css/site.css?v=" />
