List of "featured" on front page slightly different from those on Featured page. Answered

It's a minor thing that may have to do with caching but I noticed that the list of features on the front page is missing an instructable that is shown on the "Show all Featured" page.  See the following screen shots of the front page and the Featured page.  The "USB Dog Identification" is not on the front page.

This happened using Firefox and Chrome on Windows XP.

This is actually the way that our featuring is built. The USB dog identification is a photo instructable, so it doesn't go to the main page of the site, but it does go to the featured feed.

As of right now, only step by step instructables get featured right to the home page. :)

Clearing browser cache (Linux Mint, Firefox this time) doesn't fix the problem. Right now the Gandalf the Grey How-to (https://www.instructables.com/id/Gandalf-the-Grey-How-to/) is showing on my Featured page but not on the front page even though the Instructables on either side (sewing table, cigar box guitar) show on both pages.

I was assuming it was a server cache/latency issue. Not necessarily an error but just part of the vagaries of web servers.

See my reply below - not a bug but a feature of the site. :)

You may have a caching issue. Also, sometimes the two pages take a few minutes to sync up. Try clearing your cache and refreshing the page, did that help?
