Things *could* be back to normal. There had been some server maintenance going on and there seemed to be a cache issue.

Things *appear* normal again... thanks for reporting!

This a.m. I noticed that when logged out, the most recent forum post shown in the active topics was around 12:35pm yesterday (after refreshing my browser, of course).

When I log in to the forum, the most recent active post shown is from 7:11pm yesterday.

Not a big deal but why is this happening?

Edit: And when I log out after posting this, the 7:11pm post from Raysun disappears again. :?:

Refreshing a page is not the equivalent of clearing the browser's cache. An easy thing to do is use another browser on your device which you normally don't use for this forum and then log on from that one. It should not have a current cache of the forum site. I have found that when your don't clear your history, cookies, trackers or cache for a long period of time things will not always load correctly.

Strange -- I haven't seen a new post on any board for 14 hours. Maybe something wrong at my end?

Maybe just a VERY quiet day!

I should know this by now, but do I have to be logged in to the User Forum to see the latest posts? Clicking on Active Topics (under Quick Links) doesn't bring up several recent threads unless I login first.

I don't think it always worked that way (?)

Thanks for the reply -- good to know. It's only on a couple threads, so maybe just a weird glitch.
