View Full Version : Is it me or the new software?

*disclaimer* I have trouble describing computer glitches. I may use words like "thingy" and "dohicky". I truly believe these to be technical terms but I may not have their meaning correct. Pls bear with me.

I've noticed that when I browse TFL more than once a day that during the 2nd (or 3rd or 4th or 5th...well, you get the idea) session, if I click on a thread that I had looked at earlier, I get the last view I saw, not the new posts. In order to get the new posts, I have to hit the "refresh" button on my browser.

(hoping I made sense)

It's a browser setting. You need to set it to compare pages against the cache on every view. Otherwise it only compares it the first time you go there, then loads from the cache on your hard drive on every other visit.

In Internet Explorer 5.x:
Click on Tools
Click on Internet Options
Click on Settings under Temporary Internet Files
Choose Every Visit to the Page under Check for Newer versions of stored pages.

If you are running some other browser let me know and I'll let you know how to change them in yours.
