twiki.org is not properly installed.

The twisties that show/hide the help text in edit mode is not working.

The result is that I see the help text always visible but at top and bottom and I see the view and hide text side by side. The text does not work at all.

This problem was also visible before the upgrade.

Something is not installed correctly. Something that has been carried over from previous installation.

It looks awful and I cannot help thinking that the same can cause other issues on twiki.org.

Hmmm. If I do a control-F5 in read mode this did not cure the problem so I assumed it was server side.

Then I got the crazy idea to control-F5 in edit mode.

And then the problem goes away.

But this leads me to a question.

How can upgraded installations force the browser to reload the style sheets?

I am closing this report but people can still think about and maybe raise an enhancement bug if they get an idea.

Browsers cache content just temporaily, e.g. the style sheets and js gets re-loaded once in a while. TWiki.org has a known issue where css gets delivered somtimes with the wrong mime type (txt instead of css.)
