Cache Auto-Bypass?[edit]

Is there a way (either Wikimarkup or HTML) to code for a page to bypass any cache of itself it may have and load a fresh copy? -RadicalOneContact MeChase My Tail 05:48, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

Not done: as you have not requested a change.
If you want to suggest a change, please request this in the form "Please replace XXX with YYY" or "Please add ZZZ between PPP and QQQ".
Please also cite reliable sources to back up your request, without which no information should be added to any article. - Arjayay (talk) 19:43, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

Much of this has been taken directly from a number of academic sources with no real understanding, expansion of concepts or logical restructuring, the whole area of Quantum Computing needs to be written by someone who actually teaches in this field. There is so much direct plagiarism of certain topics such as explaining the mathematics of a Qubit in language that is meaningful, the whole topic needs to be reworked. Citations are missing, specific to the Qubit mathematics this article and most hyperlinks explain nothing to the broader audience Wikipedia actually serves.

The mathematical explanations likely offer little value to the layperson, and could be expressed in written English to more effect.

Yes, it is a challenging subject, but this is clearly not good enough.

The instructions for Google Chrome on OSX are incorrect. They only instruct the users to refresh not refresh to bypass cache.

  • Hold down Cmd key and then press R key.

should be

  • Hold down Cmd key + Shift key and then press R key [1]

Cmd + F5 for firefox on a mac?[edit]

The instructions prominently provide this and specifically for "In Firefox for Mac" but for that invokes voiceover, whereas to refresh it's Cmd+r. If you google <firefox mac and "cmd f5"> Most of the results are for turning on voiceover. Is this maybe an artifact from long ago?--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 05:52, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

Wouldn't be surprised. Firefox wasn't that Mac friendly way back ( it's one of the reasons for the Chimera/Camino browser which used the Gecko engine but with better Mac style shortcuts etc. was popular back then. ) I don't have Firefox installed anymore so can't double check myself, but looks like it now is Cmd+ Shift+R to Reload (override cache). While plain reload ( which might not reset the cache ) is either Cmd+R or F5, though many Mac keyboards these days need a fn in their also to type F5 with default settings. At least when I check Mozilla's support page (Note that page auto-detects OS and shows different shortcuts based on the OS.) PaleAqua (talk) 08:24, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: as you have not requested a change, but I suspect you are in the wrong place, as this page is only to discuss improvements to Wikipedia:Bypass your cache.
If you want to suggest a change, please request this in the form "Please replace XXX with YYY" or "Please add ZZZ between PPP and QQQ".
Given the nature of this page, you will also need to reach consensus before any significant changes are implemented. - Arjayay (talk) 09:09, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

I believe that one line should be updated. Specifically, "Ctrl + F5" also applies to Firefox (I read somewhere in the version saying "not for Firefox"). Please check if my understanding is true. Thanks. [2] Davidtaiwan (talk) 06:28, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

Probably was supposed to be "not for Firefox on Mac". Windows/Linux has both Ctrl+F5 and Ctrl+Shift+R, while on the Mac version it is only Command+Shift+R. PaleAqua (talk) 07:48, 16 March 2015 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done I updated based on [1] and [2], note that those pages change depending on OS used to view them. Was half tempted to use the unicode character () next to the reload button but not sure if it would show up correctly in all OSes.PaleAqua (talk) 08:10, 16 March 2015 (UTC)
