Tech Advisory for readers not seeing refreshes

Due to the heavy traffic load…over 750,000 pageviews yesterday, we had to implement a caching system to improve performance.

This is causing some problems for people where they are not getting updated posts.

You need to clear the cache on your browser.

Here are instructions for most browsers.

Most readers use Chrome on my site so here are the specific instructions for Chrome.

  1. Open the settings on Chrome. Click the menu icon in the upper right corner of the browser to the right. Click settings on the bottom of the menu.

    • A faster way to get there is to press Control+Shift+Delete on a PC, or Shift+Command+Delete on a Mac.
  2. From settings, click “Show advanced settings…”. It’s located at the very bottom of the settings section.

  3. Scroll to the privacy section and click “Clear browsing data”.

  4. Select “Empty the cache”. Uncheck all other options to avoid deleting browser history, cookies and other things you may wish to retain. Change “Obliterate the following items from” to “the beginning of time”.

  5. 5

    Press “Clear browsing data”. You are done!

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
