comment How do I delete closed web parts from a page?
By the way, closing a web part does NOT help performance. My first SharePoint gig, we had a custom Web Part that did a SQL pull and took 5 - 10 seconds to run. I found five closed web parts on the home page, each one was still running in the background even though they were closed. I wish Microsoft would remove this "Close feature", it's the most misleading thing I've seen.

Close only hides the web part, which is insidious, because it still runs in the background. I can't understand why Microsoft hasn't removed this "feature" in later versions. Your answer is correct for Close, but not for removing a web part.

Are they based in the U.S.? Is there a phone number you can call for tech support, not just a double-secret help desk submission process that can't send you an email that they replied? Do they understand SharePoint better than you?

comment Clear image cache in Office 365 Public Website
I removed the keyword 'Events' from one of the pictures. I am using similar coding on different pages, each one keys off of a keyword. That way, I can assign one or more keywords to a picture to make it show in a slideshow on a specific page, without changing the code.

comment Clear image cache in Office 365 Public Website
That makes sense if it was a browser cache, but as I said in my post, the broken image remains after clearing the browser cache, AND when using different browsers and computers. The caching is at the server, which I cannot clear because this is a Office 365 public website.

I use SPServices to pull the images from the library. I updated my post to show the code.

Not available in public site for Office 365. I have images that are not visible, looking for a way to clear the cache and see if that is the problem.
