I've used French Games fine but now the site isn't working properly. What has happened? We are frequently updating our websites to add new resources and make them load quicker. Sometimes browsers will hold on to old content rather than downloading the new material. This leads to a mix of old and new files in the browser which can break the website. That store of files is called the "browser cache".
If the site doesn't seem to be working right, the first thing you should try is to "clear your cache" - which means delete the old files and force the browser to fetch the latest ones - this solves 90% of issues (with most websites, not just ours). There is lots of information on how to clear the cache if you search for "clear cache " + your browser name.
If you need more help, or that doesn't solve your problem, contact us and we will sort it!
