I would push F12 on Chrome, and then right click the reload, deleting all my cache, and all the javascript would still be loaded in cache.

I also tried deleting cache from history in Chrome to no avail.

So the only way I can develop is by making a whole new directory for every change I make, so that Chrome doesn't reference cache.

What is going wrong? Anyone know. I have started to disable cache, but I haven't tested that heavily, what little I've done suggests this is not working either.

Is there a way to force Chrome cache out of the computer records entirely, without relying on Chrome? Like editing a file somewhere?

Could this be an administrator privilege only or something so I have to run Chrome as admin?

Have you tried CTRL+F5 or SHIFT+F5?

I believe I did, yes, I will try some more tonight at it.

thanks, it's working today, ctrl+F5 with disabling the cache must have changed something in how it works

Nevermind, it seems it stops working after working for a bit on the project.

Works at first, but then stops.

It's just some ultra-bug in Chrome, but I can't find anything else online where someone had the same problem.

Very odd. I imagine a full computer restart fixes it. But that's not very helpful, I even tried deleting the cache files manually, but Chrome keeps hidden backups somewhere.

Hit F12, which brings up the JavaScript console. Then find a button that looks like "3 dots". Click it, and choose "settings". Then under the "General" section, check a box that says "Disable cache (while DevTools is open)".

From now on, keep the JavaScript console open while you're developing. You won't have the issue again.

Thanks Joncom... it's probably great advice, but I think my Chrome must be busted. :(
