    This has happened to be twice now, and I’m not sure if it is normal or not. When I post something that is the first post of the month, the Archives listed on my page don’t seem to update for like 1-3hrs. The last month it shows is the previous month, not the current month.

    Last month, after a few hours, the archive list finally updated to show the new month. This month, it has happened again, and it is sort of irritating. Is this normal? Does everyone experience a slight delay in the archive list when posting under a new month?

    Please clear your browser cache and do a forced reload (CTRL-F5 on a PC) of the page in question.

    I’m not familiar with your ISP. You may be sitting behind a proxy of some sort as well.

    Hmm. I cleared my browser’s cache (Safari), and it didn’t resolve the issue on my laptop here, but by the wording of your response, I assumed you were able to see the missing month. So I hopped on an old computer and it looks just fine. No issues at all.

    I’m thoroughly confused. Maybe I’m not clearing something right…

    Safari has a number of issues as it’s not HTML 4.01 compatable but I don’t think they would come into play here.

    When I viewed your site, I was able to see two months. I’m running the WinXP SP2 upgrade currently so I can’t open up a new window to check. Could someone else please do so?

    Hope this helps,

    edit: I don’t think the site you’re now linking to was the site I looked at earlier since I believe the theme is different but I see a large list of months now at the ‘alex’ site. Was that the one you were talking about?

    Is 1-3 hours a delay to be concerned about? This is what I see here http://alex-thechronicle.com/ with a firefox 2 browser: #

    timethief – that is EXACTLY what I’m seeing here on this machine. November still missing (and my first post of this month occurred this morning at 9:15am, which is like what, 9hrs ago). That’s quite a few hours ago…

    And yeah, the website in question is http://alex-thechronicle.com/

    Quite aside from that your calendar is working fine. I can hover over November 1st and get Tigger, which is displayed parallel to it to my left. I don’t use calendars and the archives on all my blogs (I have several and I just checked) are still saying October.

    I saw the link to October this morning when I looked but now I see the entire list of about 18 months.

    Yeah, there are 22 months listed (not counting November). I’m just going to give it overnight and see if it might be a caching issue elsewhere. I have no idea, but it appears to be a common circumstance on a few other blogs around WP.

    Do remember that there are 4 different datacenters. This maybe an issue with your data don’t being mirrored correctly which would be a bug.

    How did you but the previous posts in there? Was this an import of some sort?

    No, I’ve never imported anything to my primary blog except when I first started the account probably 9-12 months ago. (http://alex-thechronicle.com).

    I just checked my email and received an new message from Podz, who said they are fine-tuning the caching, and sometimes minor stuff like this might happen.

    Someone tell Podz to go to bed. It’s like 2AM where he is. :(
