Banner updates in real time


(Owen Sullivan) #1

When I choose a banner topic and pin it as the site-wide banner, any revisions or changes I make to the first post in that topic will change in the banner after refreshing the page. The issue is the part where I have to refresh the page. I want the changes to show up just like they do when I’m viewing the topic.

Is there some setting or hack I can change/perform to make banner changes instantaneous? One of the forums I work on requires the changing of the banner to update users with downtime and we are changing with either numbers or extra info whenever we have new information, and people are posting that there are issues despite the banner showing differently. We just have to keep telling them that they should refresh the page every few minutes.

One work around would be to remove and re-add the banner after you’ve made your edit.
