Internet Browsers

Browsers that support JavaScript allow you to take advantage of advanced features of websites created by Your-Web-Guys, including flash menus for easy site navigation. If you have problems viewing the flash menus, you probably have JavaScript turned off in your browser, or your browser doesn´t support JavaScript.

Sometimes an internet browser will store or "cache" web pages so that they will load faster the next time you visit them. Many times your website will not show the changes that Your-Web-Guys have made because the browser you use will display the old version of a page from its cache rather than the new updated version of it. To solve this problem you should delete your browser cache. Click on name of the browser you are using from the list below to be taken to a page with instructions on how to do this.

Compatibility mode was introduced in IE8 and was a useful tool to correctly view a website if it was not designed with the newer standards of IE8 in mind. Without it many websites would not load correctly. However, because any site that Your-Web-Guys build for you will always be up to date using the latest standards it can actually have the opposite effect if turned on when not needed. If your website is not loading properly in Internet Explorer, but is loading correctly in Fire Fox or Chrome or other browsers, you probably have accidentally turned on the compatibility mode feature in Internet Explorer. Here are a few ways to make sure it is turned off. If your site still does not load correctly and you are sure compatibility mode is turned off then please contact support so we can take a look at the problem.

Click/tap on the highlighted (blue) Compatibility View icon button. (See screenshot below)
NOTE: The webpage will now reload with Compatibility View turned off for it.
