    Every time I visit Phandroid.com I have to press Shift + F5 to refresh the browser to see all the latest blog entries. Why is this?

    p.s. I'm using Chrome.

    Clear cache completely and let me know if it persists.

    Thanks!

    Clearing cache worked however this has happened before. I will clear the cache and everything will work for a while and then for some reason it breaks again. It might be a chrome thing but of all the blogs I frequent it only happens with phandroid.com. I am using the Chrome dev versions if that is useful info.

    I will pay closer attention to this and update you with any changes. Thanks

    Okay I've been testing this with two different browsers on two different computers at different places/ISP's. The behavior is pretty consistent. If I am visiting the site for the first time (after clearing cache or on a computer that has never visited the site) everything goes well. After some time I will re-open the browser and return to the website and will be greeted with the same page I was viewing when I left it. In order to see the latest entries I must refresh (F5) the page. A regular refresh seems to work meaning that I no longer have to press shift and F5.

    Browsers - Chrome (dev), Internet Explorer 7

    It seems to be working normally now. I haven't had to refresh for the latest stories for the last couple of days.
