Hi gang with cache problems
 When created mine a put a code in the auto reloads the it every 2 minutes to prevent this

Randall, please share the code you used and where you placed it.

Personally I hate forced whole page refreshes, I'd rather put up with stale content if a better alterative cannot be implemented.

Mark, I agree. There has to be a more elegant way.

You'll want to talk with The Dev about the following!

With Admin access to the SMF files can add a <meta ...> line in the <head> of the "index.template.php" file and that might help with reloading all the pages. That usually causes a page 'flash' but it can be set to refresh at maybe 5 minutes and not be too troublesome. OTOH, that might be too long for 'speed-readers'.

Admin->Features and Options->Configuration->Themes and Layout...->Modify Themes
Select the Theme (the only one really available is "Curve" which is also the "Board Default"). Then, in the list of files, double-click "index.template.php". Unless Stu has made some edits, there should be a section labeled "Beginning on line 38". Scrol down in that box and you should see the <head> section where you can add something like the following:
Code: [Select]
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="mmm" />Replace "mmm" with the number of seconds after which the page should refresh.

Note:"Refreshing the current page can be confusing. If a user didnít request the reload, they may become concerned about your site's security." For that reason, I include some text near the top of any page that refreshes automatically and note the normal timing.

Dear Blick, X-Air, and WeatherCat victims of half-baked technology,

I had to create a button on the top of my website to allow viewers to reload the page from scratch, bypassing the cache, in order to refresh some of the weather items.

It is reasonable idea for a website, but alas doesn't do anything for the forum.

Definitely annoying.

You said it! . . . .  >:(  This afternoon I spent some time migrating to a new iPad and Apple has once more been very sloppy in their software implementation.  As a result, the poor iPad has already required two reboots.

I think I've told the story but one of my students when I was teaching at U.C. San Diego was the director of phone services for Qualcomm.   She griped in frustration that when the phones failed for even a second the whole company was up in arms, while the computer services could be down and most employees should just chug their shoulders.  We all pay a huge price for software that is rushed into deployment before it is anywhere close to bullet-proof.

Oh well, . . . . . Edouard

I use Safari mostly. There is an "Empty Cache" item in the Develop menu (which is not available by default). I added/created a keyboard shortcut: Option-command-t via the Keyboard System Prefs. That's faster than mousing up to the menu constantly when making edits to the html or css to a web page. Perhaps a keyboard shortcut could be used in Chrome. 8)
