    db update?

    I was looking for a reply I made to a post, so I clicked on my name next to the 'Welcome'. I noticed there were entries I made that were missing from this list. Does the board require a refeshing period to update at some specified intervals?

    How recently?
    Not every post is stored for ever - some Forums' posts expire after a set number of days, plus posts cand be deleted or removed because of their content.

    Can you give an example?

    So what happens if you hit F5?

    F5 and all the usual procedures yielded nothing.

    Mind you, this was 17 hours ago. 4-6 hours after my last posts, 4 appeared and 5 did not appear under 'Welcome brucekrymow'.

    This is why I was curious if perhaps there was a refreshing or validating or something at some defined intervals of the input data.

    Fine with me.

    The 'Show all your own posts' link is updated in real time, as far as I can tell.

    (i.e. - if I click on it immediately after posting this, this post will be at the top of the list.)

    I haven't kept track, but they all seem to appear now in real-time! <IMG SRC=http://www.krymow.com/images/rthumbu.gif>

    Something that occurred to me:

    If you are viewing the Main Index and click on your name by the Welcome, all your posts for all forums are listed.
    If you are looking at the index of a Forum and click on your name by the Welcome, only your posts for just that Forum are listed.

    Could that explain why you were only seeing some posts?

    I am not sure by memory, Leif, but you are probably right as that sure sounds like the way I often operate - having multiple browser windows open, each on a different Forum Index. So that makes perfect sense. Yesterday when I checked during our conversation and tried the real-time test and it was right on, I was definitely in the Main Index.
