Old threads with no new posts in them showing up in my "Recent Forum Posts"

6 Replies

This has been happening for a couple weeks now. When I click on Forums -> Recent Forum Posts, partway down I see threads I've read previously and when I click on them and scroll to the bottom expecting new posts in the thread, there are none. Doesn't matter if I close my browser, refresh the page, etc., there are always quite a few in there and they're generally older ones too, not something I read yesterday, could be a week ago. 

Hey @Troy S.  - I can't replicate what is happening to you and wonder if you can help us out here.  The next time you see it happen, can you take a screencast (scree recording) so we can see it? You can use this tool to help: https://www.screenr.com

Just email us the video or a link to it at [email protected] and we'll be able to look deeper into the matter.

Thanks in advance for the assist.

No problem, could be just me, my settings, computer or whatever. Not sure and wanted to see if others are noticing this. Thanks @Joshua Dorkin  !

I've noticed something similar. 

If I leave the bigger pockets window up in my tablet from yesterday and then click and refresh the page it updates correctly. But then when I read a thread and hit the back button it goes back to the list of threads from yesterday. 

So I either have to close out the tab or hit the forum button instead of hitting the back button.

Other forums don't do it but it's No big deal though. Android user!

@Mike Landry  That sounds like what I'm seeing too. I usually leave the window up and refresh it the next time I go on BP but certainly hit the back button to leave threads and go back to Recents Posts. 

Ahh - guys, that's just something that is unavoidable. You're seeing an old cache when you hit the back button on your browser.  This isn't a bug in the software -- your browser has saved a previous version of the feed and is returning to that.  You should be able to clear it by completely reloading the page.

That's what I figured. Makes sense.
