  • Wrong time on posts?

    Has anyone else noticed that when you check the "Last 24 hours" or "View new posts", quite often the times of the posts are not correct? I'm not talking about people responding to polls, but actually postings. I see what appears to be a new post, only to find out that the last post on a thread was some time ago. It seems to me that there is an increase in the problem lately. But maybe it's just me.

    I've always had that happen Ed. Nearly every time I log on, I have to refresh the page. Often when I go from page to page too. Most times I can't get new posts from the top, I have to go to the menu choice and always have to refresh to get the latest posts.

      Check your browser cache settings. I use IE6, with cache setting of 'automatic' and it seems to be working ok. The post times are set by the server, so it has nothing to do with any one local machine. Also check your cookie settings, since that's how the forum knows the last time you posted, checked for new posts, etc.

        New Posts feature
        by Caitlin
        I have found the New Posts feature invaluable - and is basically how I access the forum now. HOWEVER it doesn't seem completely accurate. I notice I'm missing out on a number of posts - for instance there was a new post in the April Contest this morning, but it didnt come up on the New Posts list. ...

        TIP: How did I miss that thread?
        by Doug Nelson
        The way the forum tracks which threads you've read and which ones you haven't is a bit complicated, and far from foolproof. Frequently it will think you've read posts you actually haven't.

        The primary culpret is a restriction to the forum software that's necessary to keep it from overwhelming...

        Forum Search Function
        by Mining Art
        I was wondering how the forum New Posts is set up. Seems like when I return to find a thread the function will bring up a whole different batch of posts. I have been saving the links to find threads as they do not stick in one place it seems? Posting activity does not appear to be the issue, as the...

        What am I missing
        by Swampy
        Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but when I log in to RTP and see my avatar and the notice that there are 33 unread messages, I click on that number and I only get a list of 10 or 15 threads. I understand that there may be several messages in a single thread that might get listed as unread, but I feel...

        Now, today, I get a message that my in box is full, so I rush right over, and what do I find? Nothing, no message, no nothin. It was supposed...
