    There is a cache on that sort of stuff, its intentional.

      Zachery , Thank you! That makes sense, just wasn't positive. I thought I remembered it updating immediately on previous versions.

        vBulletin 5 is a fairly different beast, we do short caches in some areas where it makes sense, in order to improve performance.

          Is there a way to adjust this cache time? What is the default time?

            Can I get a response to this?

            I would like to see "New Posts" updated in real time.

            This feature is killing our discussions as people think there are no new posts when there is.

                I have the same problem, and only after refreshing the browser I get maybe the correct and updated posts

                are you sure Wayne? that's the target URL for New Topics and not for New Posts...

                  Synonymous in vBulletin 5. It is New Topics on this site because people complained since the results are in a topic view. On my test site, it uses the same string and it is New Posts with the default language.

                    We are already using this code/link and it does not address the Last Posts not being reflected.

                    Right now the only thing that seems to be working is to Clear the System Cache ( Maintenance in the Admin CP)

                    Is there a way to adjust the cache time?

                      I was replying to post #6 which is a completely different thing than Last Posts.

                      By Last Posts, I am guessing you mean the "Last Post" column in the forum and/or topic list. There is no value to change how this is cached that is exposed outside the system. It should update automatically every few minutes though.

                        Well, New Posts is now New Topics (which is a completely different Search then what we used to have)

                        With New Posts we would get an automatic return when someone made a post in a thread.

                        With New Topics we get ??
                        And it doesn't automatically update every few minutes. That's the problem. It's hanging for hours and people think the discussion has died.

                        Again, the only thing I have found to "fix" it is to clear the system cache. I don;t want to have to keep manually doing that but it sounds like you are telling me this lag is built into the software because vbulletin decided it would improve our performance.

                          Wayne, we are having the same problem where it is taking much longer than "every few minutes." You mention that this is a cached set of data. So, would you please tell me where I can edit this caching system (in the source code)? Thanks. The goal is to shorten the cache lifetime.

                            Changing the code isn't something we support. I don't know where you would make those changes. However it appears you're using an older version of the software. Numerous changes have been made and caching has been enhanced in the last 8 releases.
