Forcing Cache flush for PixRiot uploads

Postby jywong » Mon Jun 22, 2020 4:08 pm

Is there a guaranteed way to flush the cache? I am publishing, looks fine on local preview, but after upload to PixRiot it shows an old version, even after deleting temp files and flushing cache! I know, shouldn't be possible.

Yes, the guaranteed way is to re-copy a URL that you see in the Embed / Share dialog after re-uploading the assets. It will produce the same URL as before but with a different t parameter.

Alternatively, you can manually add something different after t= at the end of the original URL:

Code: Select all

Ahhhh ok I see what you're doing.

I have one spin with hotspots linking to another spin, and then vice versa, so it was never unloading it. But theoretically, only a developer would have this problem, as a brand new user would see the latest, right?

Thanks!

Right.. I can see this becoming a source of issues in setups like yours so we better work on making this requirement visible somewhere :)
