Slideshow Delay

When I edit a slide show it takes about a day to show the new pictures. Is this normal?

It's possible that it could take as much as an hour for new images to show up, but I don't think that it should take a whole day. I just did a quick test on one of my slide shows, and the new images that I posted didn't show up after a minute or two. I'd say we've found a bug! Thanks for the heads up on this, we'll look into it.

It's a bug, but it's a smaller one than it looks like. What's happening is that the Flash object that displays the slideshow is being cached by your browser. Other people, who haven't seen the original version, will see your changes within a few minutes at most. You should be able to see the changes if you clear your browser cache (how to do this depends on what browser you are using).

maybe it's your internet connection. Try again. You could just be unlucky.
