I think i have a similar problem. I think its something to do with cookies and the saving of older pages. For instance, when I type in www.mx6.com and go to the forum list, it is showing the info for like june 17th. gthe only way I can go to updated forums is to go through the email links to the updated pages. It can get really annoying. Basically when I goto the website, it loads an older page from like a previous time I visited.
nope when i hit reload it just reloads the page from my cache and doesn't show the newest version. The odd thing is, everything works fine with my old computer but my new computer is the one that has the loading problems. perhaps this board doesn't get along with IE or windows me.
This is a very common problem with bulletin boards and IE. There is a setting in IE 4 and higher that tells it to load a cached copy of a page instead of a new copy. In IE click Tools then Internet Options then the Settings button under Temporary Internet Files.
You will see an option to Check for Newer Versions of Stored Pages. The Automatically option seems to work fine for me but if it isnt working, then I would select Every Time I Visit the Page. This will slow down visiting pages that are the same but you will always get an updated page from MX6.com.
The Automatically feature should work though becasue it looks for file extensions that indicate dynamic content. Our pages all end in (.php) so the browser should never load a cached copy in Automatically mode.
hey thanx scooby, you intentionaly unintenaly helped me...... for thouse who struggle(and poor confused scooby)..... do what scooby said, if that desn't work(as it didnt for me) swear a little bit, then put it back to automatic....it woked for me
