your browser is caching the pages. Just hit refresh.

An easy way to avoid caching (often by over excited ISP) is to add:
&myNumber=67989876987
or some other "random" stuff to the URL -- the caching server sees a "new" URL and re-reads it rather than serving up some stale stuff.

I don't believe it is a problem with the site. I have never experienced the problem you describe.

OK Then it seems your ISP is doing the caching. I know it's not hugely techincal but it does happen. ISPs cache pages! Not an awful lot you can do about it that I know of.
i do appreciate how frustrating it can be though.
I don't think it's a problem with the site since most people here don't have this problem.

I know when I post from home and use AOL I have a big problem with them caching pages. EVEN if I set my browser to not cache (which of course slows things down) I still get the saved page from AOL. They refresh this cache on a regular basis ( I think that it is about 20 minutes). There are times when I was forced to just sign out of AOL and re-enter just to get a clean cache so that I could edit a message .

Cindy, are using the AOL browser or opening IE or Netscape when you have that problem. If you are using AOL browser, try using one of the others and see if that works for you. Just use AOL to connect and use a different browser.

No, the minute that I get a connection, I minimize AOL (yuch!) and use IE. I have IE set up to pull each page fresh every time - but still - it only gets the page that AOL has cached. Often you don't really notice this - but sometimes it causes problems.

If you hold down the "shift" key when you click on the reload icon on your browser it forces a true reload.

As Dharmesh said, everybody wud have tried refresh/reload but yes Chris, the shift + reload/refresh helped in my case. Thanks.
But I am wondering why then the count on the listing page shows right and why ONLY the replies are not actually present in there? If caching is being done either by the browser/ISP or wherever, the same behaviour will be for all the pages since the url(I guess) does not change with each request for the listing page too.
To know that I am not alone is refreshing. If more details reqd,here's the link where I originally brought this topic up.

wouldn't the isp be smart enough to check the timestamp of the page on the net before dishing out the cached page?
couldn't it be that the timestamp of the html page is not getting reflected to the isp?(so that it thinks that it has the latest copy)
btw none of the methods worked for me neither the shift+refresh nor modifying the url-adding(don't have much idea about going abt it
could anyone give an example-the page not found html page pops up when i try doing it)

Most ISP's, Proxy Server's, Firewall's and Browser's will not cache a dynamic page. The main forum list is always a cgi so, doen't get cached. Forum Topics are generated into an html to help improve system performance html page can be cached.

With netscape it's shift-reload. With IE it's control-refresh.
This sounds exactly like a caching problem. I've experienced it before too, and control-refresh always fixes it.
