Find a Cached / Historical Version of Your Site

A cached page is a snapshot or a version of a web page saved at a specific time and stored by a web server as a backup copy.

Checking a cached version of a page is useful if the original page has been removed by the site owner.

Once in awhile someone will overwrite their page content in error, losing the content that they did not intend to delete.

The only way to recall the content of the page is to track down a cached page of the site.


Following are some resources for accessing cached pages.


Google Cache

  • do a Google search on the page in question, such as:
    YourDomain.com
    or for your bio page:
    YourDomain.com/about
  • click on down-arrow
  • click on Cached page


  • you can copy the text from the cached page
  • you can also click Text Only Version (upper right) to exclude images
  • paste text into the desired page in your FASO Control Panel

Web Archive

Web.Archive.org is more comprehensive than google or bing caches.

  1. enter the url of the page you need, in the box at the top, such as:
    YourDomain.com/about
  2. the results will show something like Saved 4 times between April 26, 2013 and November 3, 2013
  3. click on the blue dots on the calendar, to see the cached version of the page on that date
  4. copy the text from the cached page
  5. paste text into the desired page in your FASO Control Panel

ViewCached.com

Another resource is ViewCached.com.


We highly recommend saving text in a backup document, preferably as Plain Text (to avoid html code causing formatting issues).

On a PC, use Wordpad or Notepad:

  • click Start
  • click Programs
  • click Accessories
  • select Wordpad or Notepad
  • paste your text
  • save note on your computer or disk as a backup

On a Mac, we recommend TextEdit:

  • click on the Search icon (looking glass, top right of screen)
  • enter TextEdit
  • click on TextEdit
  • after typing your text, click Format, then Make Plain Text
  • then copy and paste your text into the text editing screen
  • save the TextEdit note on your computer or disk as a backup
