Hi,

With newtest/Y (or &newtest=Y) : be sure to load all updated survey and expression.

Without newtest/Y : if a user goes to your survey, after you update something in your survey (for example a javascript using EM ) the IS question text (and script) aren't updated.

so, it's about the cache something?
in my understand, the LS will read question from mysql after submit one.is that right?
in most condition, the survey is not changed after creat, then those 2things are same?

The newtest parameter forces a new session. If not given then the old session for the same survey is trying to be re-used.

Usually your participants only participate once in your survey and this won't matter.
