    @paul-1

    Lately i find that unless i log in i cannot see the most recent posts in a thread. In some cases this means that in the list view of threads in a patricular forum, i will see a name and time of the most recent post, but that post is not shown if i go to that thread, unless I login. And somtimes there are a couple oofposts that i can`t see until I log in. Happening on two different devices, with two different operating systems, and two different browsers.

    This is supposedly a benefit for members, seriously. I’ve noticed some times a lag of more than three hours. Must suck for Gear Swap.

    Yep, I’ve noticed this too.

    And now we have a name for this behavior: “oofposts”.  I like it.

    This bug/feature has been around since 2017:

    https://backpackinglight.com/forums/topic/known-issue-caching-of-recent-forum-posts/

    Good news – it used to be much, much worse.

    Bad news – ain’t gonna get fixed, now it’s a feature, not a bug.

    Login for the latest, or live a few hours in the past. Your choice.

    It’s sort of a feature (insert smiley crying face here) but the decision is more practical.

    Pages are aggressively cached for non-logged in users. It speeds up their load times quite a lot. It’s good for business and increases ad revenues.

    BUT

    We’re moving away from network ad revenues, which is awesome for both you and me. Read the Year in Review for more info.

    I know, I know. It’s a barge, a bit slow to move. But move we will. Thanks for sticking with us.
