Java 7.51 cache blocking Photo Upload

23 Jan
The newest version of Java (7.51) is causing a conflict with Linxworks Manager’s Photo Upload Facility (PUF).  Clearing the Java Plug-in cache forces the browser to load the latest versions of web pages and programs.  Two steps are required:
1.       Clear Java Cache by deleting Temporary Files through the Java Control Panel; and
2.       Clear the browser’s Temporary Cached Files and Cookies.
Once complete, open a new browser and photos will upload as expected.

If  you would like a copy of step-by-step guidelines to clear your browser’s Java Cache; or have Support walk you through this process, Contact Us at Linxworks’ Support.

Tool Bar Add Ons Slowing You Down?

31 Oct

Many programs will install toolbars that are loaded into your web browser, sometimes without your knowledge. These are web browser add-ons that add features (extra toolbars, animated mouse pointers, stock tickers, and pop-up ad blockers) to your web browser. They can help but they can also decrease your Web browser’s viewing spaces, as well as slow down your its performance. You can manage your add-ons through your browser by disabling or remove them in your computer’s control panel (be sure to check with your IT department before installing/uninstalling any software.) For more information Contact Us at Linxworks’ Support.

Troubleshooting 101 – the Refresh

16 Jan

When surfing Manager, UsedIron or any other web sites you visit often, your browser stores the web page in a cache so that it does not have to be downloaded every time you visit the site, making your browsing faster (this includes photos, graphics, pages you viewed, etc.)  If these pages don’t resolve / display the way your think they should…or they are just plain slow as molasses, try the following:

  • REFRESH – allows you to reload a web page where the content may have changed over time.  Click the button with the two green arrows at the end of the Address bar (usually at the top of the browser) or hit the function key F5.
  • HARD REFRESH – will bypass any cached files and display the web page as it currently appears on the site’s server. This can also be useful to clear forms and ensure that you are viewing the page as it currently appears on the site’s server. This would be common with websites that are constantly being updated (non-static sites.) The control key is held down while clicking on the refresh button or pressing F5 (CTRL F5.)

This works with most browsers like Internet Explorer or FireFox. For information on this and MANAGER tools, CONTACT US.

Upload you equipment listings automatically to MANAGER

9 Nov

Why re-enter the same equipment info over and over again? Data from your business system, a spreadsheet or even heavy equipment websites can be uploaded to MANAGER either nightly or as a one time bulk upload. Details, features, conditions, availability and even photos can be automated. Less errors and more time to sell iron. For information on this and other MANAGER tools, CONTACT US.

Copy your MANAGER listings to craigslist and ebay classifieds
