Important: Sometimes you might notice that settings from are not being applied to your SharePoint site. This might happen because of caching issue. To confirm, try to open your site in another browser. If you see the new settings, then this is caching issue.

To solve it, all you have to do is to add ?v=any_number to the end of the script link. 

For example, if script link is like this

<script type="text/javascript" src="//"></script>

Just make it like this:

<script type="text/javascript" src="//"></script>
