Introduction

Error text: Oops, something went wrong… Try to refresh the page, or log in and log out again.

This error occurs when tools and browser cache data restrict network traffic. Since Texada Web relies on real-time data, these restrictions make it difficult for the app to communicate with the server.

Troubleshooting This Error

There are three methods you can use to address this error when it occurs:

  1. Perform a hard refresh.
  2. Turn off your ad blocker, or disable it for the Texada domain.
  3. Ensure a VPN or other network tool is not blocking the Texada domain.

Performing a Hard Refresh

By performing a hard refresh on the page receiving the error, you can clear your browser cache for that page and force your browser to load the most recent version of that page. This is often enough to stop the error from occurring. 

To perform a hard refresh, press the following keys while the browser tab displaying the error is open:

Windows: 

  • Ctrl + reload button Browser - Refresh
  • Ctrl + F5
  • Ctrl + Shift + R

Mac:

  • Shift + reload button Browser - Refresh
  • Command + Shift + R

Please note that just clicking the reload button Browser - Refresh alone will NOT perform a hard refresh.
