Updates/corretions to my Instructables not showing when logged out Answered


I've made some corrections to my Instructables. While I can see them updated while I'm logged in, the contents go back to the original version when I log out.
I suspect that pages are cached.

Is there a way to override/refresh the cache, so that my corrections can be seen by the general public?

Thank you,
Aki

Clear your local cache on your machine, or have you done that already?

Yup. Also tried from couple of different computers & iPhone & iPad. All showing the old version.
However the page just updated to a newer version. Comments are bit behind so I can tell that the cache updates maybe once a day?

You've got it :-/ Different servers are used for logged-in vs. not-logged-in users (being a much larger amount of traffic!), and the cache for the latter servers are only updated daily, or maybe twice daily.

The biggest effect you as a single author might notice is that search-engine results for your I'bles will lag behind your changes.

I got it. Wish there was a way to update the cache when I edit the Instructable, but I can live with once a day update.

I find that a simple page-reload does it for me (FireFox)

Haha, I think ledartist is saying they wish they could manually update the cache for the public, not update the cache for themselves when logged in.

Yes, that was coming through (I read you right there)
