iPhone App Reader Doesn't Refresh

    I have the WordPress App for my iPhone, and it works great, except for the Reader.

    If I go into the reader and open up a topic – for example I have travel saved – the feed doesn’t refresh, so I can only view posts that are 44 days old. I know you need to swipe down to refresh, but I do this repeatedly and the feed never refreshes! The same thing happens in other feeds like ‘posts I like’ or ‘blogs I follow’.

    Is this a glitch with the app, and does anyone know when it’s likely to be cleared up?

    The blog I need help with is emilyluxton.co.uk.

    Hi
    I’m finding exactly the same problem. The ‘blogs I follow’ refreshes but the ‘topics’ don’t and just store old posts

    Here’s the link for the iOs forums http://ios.forums.wordpress.org/
    You may want to post here so the developers are aware of the issue > http://ios.forums.wordpress.org/forum/how-to-and-troubleshooting
    This is just to be sure are you running the latest version of the app http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2012/08/09/wpios-3-1/

    If you don’t have a username account at WordPress.org, click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post to the iOs forums.

    Do you have any luck is you uninstall and reinstall the app?

    Yep. Everything refreshes. However only the once. I have to uninstall and install to get a new refresh of the topics I follow. One strange thing is that “blogs I follow” updates. Just not anything else.

    http://ios.forums.wordpress.org/register.php seems to be working fine for me, but maybe not from a mobile device.

    First, please make sure that your browser is up to date by visiting http://whatbrowser.org/

    If it is not, please try updating your browser or switching to a different browser.

    If it is, please do these three things:

    1. Try clearing your browser’s cache and cookies: http://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/

    2. Make sure that you have third-party cookies enabled: http://en.support.wordpress.com/third-party-cookies/

    3. Try with all browser extensions or add-ons temporarily disabled.

    Please let us know how each step goes for you, and which browser (and version of) you’re using if you’re still having trouble.

    When I try to register via Firefox nothing happens at all when you submit the form, and when I try via IE I get the message “Registration blocked. Please stop.”
    Any suggestions? I’m still having the problem with the topics not refreshing btw

    All my browsers are current and up to date.
    I have tried steps 1,2 and 3 several times On a Mac running OS 10.8.2 Safari 6.0.2
    and FF 19.0.2 All to no avail. Maybe it’s your end the problem lies ?

    vilvintage, please try the troubleshooting steps listed above and reply with your browser version.

    kilted1, I’ve asked the mobile team to look into this.

    In the meantime I checked out the forum even though I can’t register and post here and the issue has already been posted:
    http://ios.forums.wordpress.org/topic/posts-in-topics-not-updating#post-8788
    It just hasn’t been replied to at all

    The app is an open-source project with quite a few volunteers on the team. As long as it’s posted, they’re aware of it, they just might not have the time to respond.
