    Recent issues with 'frozen' forum pages

    Over the last 12 hours or so there have been reports that the forum pages have stopped updating. This seems to have been an issue with our content caching system, meaning that updates to content were being recorded but were not being displayed. At the same time it was difficult to log in to the forum.

    We seem to have cleared up the issue now and everything seems to have been resolved. The forum is once again working normally again. I am, however, still checking everything for errors but I believe these issues should be sorted out.

    If you still see frozen pages you should be able to fix this by forcing a refresh of your browser. You can do this as follows:


    • Windows: Ctrl + F5
    • Mac/Apple: Apple + R or Command + R
    • Linux: F5


    Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

    It's working for me now. I cleared the cache in Chrome for Android, logged out, and logged back in.

    I tried that, and logged out and back in again, but most of my UE pages are still frozen. I got to this thread via 'View Forum Posts' on one of your older posts. That seems to be working properly- i have just checked and my posts of today are there, though I still can't see them in the main forum pages.

    Re: Recent issues with 'frozen' forum pages

    It seems to be working OK for me now. I simply refreshed my browser; I didn't even have to log out and in again. Thanks Red5.

    Edit: I take it back (not the thanks, just the comment.) I've logged out and in again, and closed and reopened my browser but the main page still isn't registering when I've read a thread - it continues to appear in bold no matter what.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Log out, clear your browser's cache, and log back in. This fixed it for me.
