Server Caching: Newest Feed Content Not Posting

Published February 8, 2013

The Issue

Your site includes content such as a news or events feed from another UBCMS or external source, and what is shown on your site doesn't update when that external feed changes. This has to do with server caching.

Workaround

You can change the settings to ensure that most recent content is pulled into your site. Here's how:

  1. Go to Page Properties
  2. Click the Advanced tab
  3. Scroll down and select Server Caching
  4. In the Flush Triggers box, enter the URL of the Web page from which the content is generated. If, for example, it's a news feed from the UB Reporter, you would enter the UB Reporter URL.
