Page Refresh

I have continual problems with accessing pages on this site. Unless I delete my browser cache before accessing a page, I get the copy of the page from the last time I accessed the page, and thus miss any updated posts. I think this means the server for this site gives out bad information about when pages are updated. Normal browsers query the server to see if a page has been updated. If the browser has a cached copy of the page, and the server info indicates no update since the cached copy, the browser just uses the older cached copy.

I don't think it's the site. It's your browser which is apparently set for the cache that retains the former view. I have that happen when I use Firefox or Google Chrome; however, when I use Internet Explorer, this doesn't happen. It seems harder to get the right setting for eliminating the cache on Firefox and Google Chrome. If you are a little more tech savvy than me, perhaps you can solve this.

I've had the same issue with both Firefox and Safari. Sure, I can set firefox so it doesn't retain cache. Thats not the optimum way to use a browser though. This is the only site where I have this issue, so I'm pretty sure the server does something differently than most other sites.

Rlm,

Yeah, Chrome has always displayed old cached pages for me. I always use IE8 for viewing this site correctly.
And yes it is the only site that does this (that I know of) so it's gotta be in this server/web settings.

What's the fix? I like Chrome ...

Looks like this problem has FINALLY been fixed with the update to the site. Thanks!
