Forum acts weirdly after client side updates


(Sam Saffron) #1

Continuing the discussion from Categories no longer showing counts - a bug?:


We deploy new versions of the site quite often that involve client side changes however fail to notify or refresh clients. This leads to all sorts of random and weird behavior. To resolve.

  1. If you ever navigate from one page to another and we detect you have an old version of the site, fallback to a full page load.

  2. If we detect you are running an old version of the site, show a message asking you to refresh (after a certain time buffer)

We definitely need to get to this by February 2014.
