This should be it

Alright, everyone reading: before attempting to test this bug:
1. Clear website settings, client cache, and server cookies
2. Login to the site
3. Write a post
4. It should show up when reading the forum.

Alright, here is an update on the situation... :Titan:

Everything worked fine for about.. 3 hours. Then when Frodo came online, she informed me that this wasn't working for her. Well guess what? It's not working for me.. OR ANYONE. :P

So while the forum cache problem was fixed for a few hours, we are now back to square one. :bye:

I sent a Private Message to Robert yesterday, to inform him of this.  :Titan:

Fingers crossed that he is working on the problem.  :P

How to Force Refresh a Page:

You probably know that by clicking the "Refresh" button on your browser bar or by pressing the F5 key, your browser refreshes the current page. Sometimes, however, due to webpage time stamps and our forum cache issue, this doesn't always work.. so you can't see the newest posts. To force refresh the page & cache, hold down your CONTROL (Ctrl) key and press F5.

You will need to do this on every page.
Hope this helps some of our forum guests/members. :P

You have no attachments in that post.   :blink:

Try posting again, and adding attachments.   :(

I know that Frodo. I am talking about viewing OTHER users attachments. I can't see any of them. And when I try to view them, I get the permission error. :bleh:

Funny thing is that if you press reply and scroll down you will see the image attached by frodo.
I think you are not supposed to download it.
I think it's in IP bord settings admin has to change how attachments are handled.

I ll tell Robert , since I don't have admin account.

I have changed some in the IPB Administration, the forum is not cached anylonger.

Therefor the forum should appear normal, with no posts disappearing.

I don't want to celebrate yet, but for me.... I think it's working. :blink:

You know, I suggested disabling the forum cache a while ago. :bleh: At least I was right.

And thanks for the help Robert. Now we need to see if it works for everyone else as well.:(

After I made my first post (http://www.reloaded....showtopic=11085), I didn't see the thread in the forum, but I followed the suggestions in post #16 here and it worked.  Thanks.

Possible Fix to Browser Cache Issue:

We have had this browser cache issue for long enough. It's downright frustrating. I've seen some of Studentis's staff attempt to fix it, but it usually ended in failure. So, I've taken matters into my own hands. Just like I did with our skin problem. And.. it seems like I "fixed" the refresh problem.

Now, it's pretty much impossible to literally fix the "actual" cache issue without server access, but I have come up with a simple solution.. that actually seems to work.

I've inserted a code into the "AR Neo (Default)" theme's header. This code tells the user's browser to NOT load the cache. In simple terms, it ignores the page stored on the user's computer, and loads a fresh one.

<%
Response.Expires = 15
Response.ExpiresAbsolute = Now&#40;&#41; - 2
Response.AddHeader &#34;pragma&#34;,&#34;no-cache&#34;
Response.AddHeader &#34;cache-control&#34;,&#34;private&#34;
Response.CacheControl = &#34;private&#34;
%>

This sort of "by-passes" the current forum cache problem. With this script in our header, pages *should* show new posts when refreshed.. without force refreshing. (CTRL-F5)

This will work in ALL browsers. However, you MUST be using our default AR Neo skin. (Why wouldn't you? :bleh:)

These changes can not be seen instantly though. You must either force refresh every page, or clear your browser cache.

Here are instructions on how to clear your cache, for every browser.

For me, after clearing Google Chrome's cache, pages are loading new posts without force refreshing.

Hope this works. Please post your feedback.  :angry:

Hmm, it worked at first, when I cleared my cache.  
But now it seems to... not work again.  I still have to press Ctrl F5 to see new posts.   :angry:
