Cache Issues Pages never change

I have run into an issue where changes I make and restart server don't show up. The Robot images shows up... if I delete that entire section of html, save and restart server the page does not change.

I have tried File> invalidate cache and restart with no luck... is there a way to delete Tomcat cache?

Hi there, Rhett Herring ! It sounds like it might be your browser that is caching things. I'm wondering what happens if you do a "hard refresh". Try holding down CTRL and pressing refresh or CTRL + F5 and let me know what happens.

Hopefully, this helps, but let me know! :sparkles:

I've tried every browser I have... I have restarted, invalidate cache in Intelij... It's only the HTML files ... changes to the controller do show.... but HTML is acting exactly like server cache.

Hi Rhett Herring ! It looks like you might have to turn off the caching in a properties file with this line:

spring.thymeleaf.cache=false

Take a look at this stackoverflow answer and see if it helps!

I was able to run "./gradlew cleanBuildCache" from the IntelliJ terminal... everything works now.

I will keep this handy for future: spring.thymeleaf.cache=false
