    I'm not sure if this is actually a problem caused by Transmit, or something else, but I honestly have no idea anymore. I've been using Transmit for about a month, and everything has been working perfectly. Well, over the last week or so I've been trying to edit my websites' CSS coding, when I save it and load the pages in my browser, the changes don't show up.

    I've tried clearing my cache, restarting my computer, checking for software updates and even having friends load the pages on their computers, and the changes aren't taking effect. I open the files in Transmit and TextWrangler (my secondary code editor) and both say the files are edited and saved, but they are not showing up on my site! :(

    Any advice?

    How are you uploading it? Try removing the old file and replacing it with the new one (instead of just overwriting the old one). Also are you sure you're putting the CSS file in the correct location?

    Yes, it's in the right location. I've tried deleting the old file, NOT uploading the new one and my site still loads the old one, even though it isn't there :confused:

    I usually don't overwrite my files, I've been opening them in Transmit, editing, and just saving. This problem hasn't come up until this last week.

    Another thing, it's ONLY my stylesheet that is doing this. When I edit any other file, the changes show up in my browser, but not my changes to stylesheet :(

    This is a really strange sounding problem, but based on what you've told us, the only plausible explanation I can think of is that it's a problem with your web host, in that a cached (and out of date) copy of the CSS file is being served when clients connect. That's the only possible way that I can think of personally to explain the fact that other users, using different browsers on different computers, are experiencing the same problem.

    If I were you, I'd try contacting the web host and explain the problem to them —*perhaps they are able to flush whatever caching system they use to serve up files.
