    Cache FUBARed. Recent posts no workee

    I get that y'all need to cache the results but it's badly broken. As I type this at 4:11pm Pacific, I see these as the top posts in Most Recent:

    Click image for larger version  Name:	image_151712.png Views:	3 Size:	104.3 KB ID:	1079413
    If I click into the 'back to smoking' thread, there are maybe 10+ posts, not the 2 shown here.

    OS - MacOS 11.5.2
    Browser: Safari 14.1.2

    Browser cache cleared and force reloaded. This happens on a fresh download of Firefox too.

    The system has a setting for how long to cache results. That was set to 7 minutes. This is how long it can take before new posts will show in the "Recent Posts". The lower the number, the more loading of the server. I moved that down to 3 minutes. So basically you will see the most recent posts that are at least 3 minutes old.

    Let me know if that does not improve things.

    PS: forgot to mention that this is cached on the server, not your browser. So clearing your cache will not effect it.

    Yeah it's fine now. The 7 minute thing wasn't a problem, it's that the cache hadn't cleared for hours (note the 11am posts at the top at 4pm)

      Now that is something I can look into. There are occasional DB issues with the search cache (I get a email alert). These might be the culprit. I have not found the cause yet. But I will keep working on it.

      Yeah I don't see it a lot (I'm used to the several minute delay) but a 5 hour delay was exceptional, hence the post.
