Whilst making changes to my site I was testing out language changes that would be only relevent to a non-administrator and whilst doing so noticed a big issue...
When I change my administrative privledges so that my additional account is a "normal member" on my Ning network (as opposed to an admin) none of the CSS I have recently added to the appearance of my network under developer mode are visible??? As soon as log in as network creator or change my additional account back to administrator as opposed to "normal member" suddenly I can see all the CSS changes I have made again!
Is this just me missing something obvious??
The same thing is happening in IE, Chrome and Firefox.
If you don't mind, shoot us a ticket from the Support link on your My Network dashboard so that we can take a closer look. I think some of this is caching-related as SP suggested (and note that we cache signed out versions of networks for ~15 minutes for performance reasons), but if you're seeing different things while signed in under different accounts, that doesn't seem right.
Hi Aaron, thanks for your reply. This is what I can't get my head around - my kneejerk reaction too was the cache but I did all my usual empty refresh tactics as suggested by SweetPotato (thanks for taking the time to reply by the way) but to no avail. The fact that a change I updated months ago is also affected is rather odd...
Anyway, I have raised a support ticket just now so hopefully you can help me get to the bottom of it!
Have you switched out of Developer Mode? That's the only thing that makes sense here. Happened to me last year.
Exiting DM will not remove your customization, Anna.
Hmm. Interesting. I only tried using it just once, don't know what for. What I do recall is that being in DM removed customization from my members pages, and possibly other customization. Had to contact Ning help, and they told me to exit Developer Mode, and all was well again. I don't go anywhere near it for that reason.
