Home page forum thread problem?

Postby randalmartin » Fri Dec 07, 2012 11:11 am

Is anyone else having the problem where you have to do a forced refresh of 14ers.com in order to see the latest Forum updates. It's like you see a cached page that is a little older (maybe a few hours old).

Home page refreshing

Postby BillMiddlebrook » Fri Dec 07, 2012 11:37 am

To reduce the amount automated page calls which were being done throughout the day (tens of thousands), I recently changed the process to check for recent forum replies every 5 minutes, instead of every 30 seconds. The home page has a timer which runs ever 5 minutes to check to see if something has been posted to the tab which you're currently viewing and, if something new is found, the Image icon changes to flashing red. If you then click on that Image icon, the tab is refreshed without having to refresh the entire page.

So, it just takes a little longer for the thing to flash if someone posts a forum reply.

Additionally, the home page does not have (and hasn't) an overall automatic "refresh" so page content will not be refreshed unless you press the browser refresh button or the refresh icon Image/Image above the content tabs.
