Forum:"Did you know...?" disappears?
I noticed that, recently, a "Did you know...?" section has been added to the Pikipedia's front page. The thing is... Now I see it, now I don't. Sometimes I access the main page just to see if there's something I didn't know. And most of the times, get to see that it isn't there. Could it be that I'm using Firefox? (Unlikely...)
Also, another thing from Did You Know section. I saw the "code" behind the section, and noticed that there are about 14 curiosities. Shouldn't the Wikia show some random five? Whenever I see it, I almost always see the same five. [SRB2]EspyoT 20:05, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
- We randomised the front page, so you either see that box, the exerpts one or the random picture one. And yeah, it randomises the 'Did you know...?'s as well: Firefox is probably just loading a cached version of the page (that is, from what it remembers of last time it visited, stored on your computer) rather than reloading it; either that or you're really, really lucky. You can bypass the cache by pressing ctrl+r or ctrl+F5. I know it's possible to turn off or limit caching altogether, but not sure if it can be applied to only one page/website. GP
- I noticed that the front page randomises the boxes about 2 hours before I saw your answer >_> But thanks again! And yes, reloading overriding the cache is really Ctrl+F5. I guess it really is a problem about the cache page. Either that or I'm really lucky!... [SRB2]EspyoT 22:27, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
