Hi everyone. How come, over at the raven boards, whenever I add a post to a topic, I can't see my post, and any post that anyone else makes after me. It's so frustrating! Grrr!

That's odd, did you try refreshing?

That's odd, I think i've heard of this before, but no over a week. I'll see if I can find the post!

Do you know what a "cache" is, Simmo?

Just incase you don't I'll explain it briefly.

Whenever you visit a website, your web browser "caches" the site by downloading it in your "Temporary Internet files" folder. This way, the next time you visit the site, it will just pull it out of your cache, and it saves you time.

Unfortanally, that's designed for sites that are rarely updated. For Messageboards, they're a real pain in the butt. Even when you hit 'refresh', it'll still pull the old page out of your cache.

There are ways to override it, look around in the "options" in your web browser.

What web browser are you using?

The raven boards have moved. There is currently one topic, and thats at a soldier of fortune board, but still, theyre better, an ikonboard, nowhere near as good at phpbb2 or whatever this is. So go there, and post since I think i got there before you did dobberman, I think.

I don't like the new boards, and most of the people at the EF Raven Boards don't like 'em either, we've grown accustomed to the way they are, in fact, they have made an exact replica of the boards as they are now and if the boards ever go offline, we're all gonna move there!

The old boards were classic, the new boards change that, Im still visiting the old boards, yet, the old boards will always be home, even if I hardly went there.

Nah, they look a bit to white. When I first went, they had a black background, then after I changed my profile to add an avatar, they went white. Huh?

EDIT:
Oh, you can change the colour scheme to suit your personal preference, nice. A good thing phpbbp2 doesnt have I think.

ALSO:
How come, nowadays, when I go to a topic or something, it reloads the last viewed thing. And now Im on about here, not at Raven. I have to press refresh. Allendude, could you give a step by step of disabling this, you told me what to do, but not how.

Oh, why wont you enable it? Wait, it was available once wasn't it? I remember using a white theme once, then I changed to the blue, then it stuck at this.

Hmm, maybe because the only other theme there is is a metallicy grey and white thing that is the default for all phpBB's, and you get to see none of my TNG buttons Sad

What browser are you using? IE?

Tools>Internet Options

In the middle you'll see "Temporary Internet Files"
Click settings

Click "Automatically"
Click OK

I think that will work, if not, click "Delete Files" instead of Settings.
