1. Due to the recent site upgrade, the iPadForums (iPF) App will no longer work. The new iPadForums.net website has been designed from the ground up to work perfectly from any mobile, tablet, or desktop computer using the built in internet browser.

    On one particular page the result looks absolutely fine on a PC and on the iPAD via Safari. However, I have been unable to replace the incorrect page used by the shortcut from the iPAD home page. I have deleted and recreated the shortcut (from within Safari) and I have powered the iPAD off/on. Still the incorrectly constructed index page persists via the shortcut.

    I can only assume there is some kind of cache on the iPAD that is failing to clear down properly.

    Any ideas?

    If it's a cache, then going to Settings > Safari and Clear Cookies and Data will fix it. Otherwise I have no idea what is going on.

    Rebooted the server, also left a day and guess what - problem cleared.... Thanks for the hint though, I am betting that is what it was.
