This cache has a Travel Bug...or does it?

Recommended Posts

I've stumbled across another side effect of having cache page information update only when a new log in entered, rather than for each page view:

 

If someone logs the retrevial of a travel bug, the TB page gets updated to show the bug in the person's possession...but the cache page that it was retrieved from still shows the travel bug icon (and link to the TB page) until another log is added to the page.

 

I can see this having the potential for misleading cachers into thinking there will be a travel bug when they get to the cache...only to be disappointed that it was already taken.

 

As a temporary solution, I recommend that anyone who logs a travel bug into our out of a cache add another 'dummy' note following their log entry, in order to force a refresh of the page. The log can then be deleted to remove it from the page. (And the cache page watchers will have to put up with extra 'phantom' log notices to the cache page.)

Doh! I see Jeremy's already seen, and is addressing, the issue.

 

Have I mentioned how much it SUCKS that we can't delete our own logs anymore? And WHY is the 'delete' option still there to tease us if we aren't allowed to use it???? icon_mad.gif

I fixed this issue.

 

I'll pass this on to Elias. You should be able to delete your own posts.

Especially for the accidental double posts (or jumped-the-gun-too quickly posts, like above), it's nice to be able to 'undo' a posting. icon_smile.gif

 

I look forward to having it back soon.
