I'm making an all-in-one Manialink tutorial, with a good summary of most of the aspects

Is it ok if I use stuff from the Wiki and re-phrase them, if I find any useful info I don't already have?

Hmm. Maybe I am missing something here, but isn't there a way to reload the manianet from the ingame browser?

When I do changes in my xml, and want to evaluate them, I need to restart TMU for the upated page to display....

Isn't there an easier way?

Mmm..that's what one would think yes...but it just read the cached version (even with a non-cache header from apache).


EDIT: I've found out that it doesnt refresh content from URL's that ends with a "/". Solution: make sure your documents ends with .xml
