I don't know whose fault it is, the forum or Google Chrome. But when I browse the forum the pages refuse to refresh themselves and I have to manually do it.

For example when I logged in, the front page loaded as if I had not but after I refreshed the page it loaded normally. And after I entered a thread where someone made a new post it wasn't there but after I reloaded everything went back to normal. This is frustrating either the forum or Chrome is fucking my shit up.

This occurs in other browsers as well. :shock:

Refreshing the page or emptying you cache helps. But normally it should do that automatically.

I use Google Chrome (most of the time) and everything works ok for me :?

Try doing a hard reset Ctrl+F5 this will force a load from the server and might help to reset your cache but as Mad has said this should be done automatically when new content is available.
(also try deleting your browser history :idea: )

EDIT: Just noticed this is also happening to me in Chrome (never did before) anyone else having this problem. :o

EDIT 2: Not happing in IE and I haven't changed anything on the forum lately so must be something to do with Chrome, will do some more investigating. :think:

Yep, happening here too. You can force your cache to clear so you can momentarily see new content but you will have to keep clearing it afterwards to force your browser to truly reload the page.

Still looking into this, so far i have discovered that it could be a sever problem but Host Gator (my provider)are saying it is not them. :roll:

Have put some lines of inquiry out will report back when i get something. :party:

Happening here for me too on two different PC's. Both using Firefox. I wondered why there wasn't a new post for a few days and finally today I refreshed the page and all the newer posts showed. Have the main forum page bookmarked, thinking of trying to delete old bookmark and setting new on this PC to see what happens.

Edit: Book marking new seems to solve the issue for me. I came back after an hour and tried both bookmarks. The old bookmark still showed only posts after I refreshed. The new bookmark had newer posts added after the hour.
