I have started to use Chrome in preference to IE and FF.

I still use the other two for various reasons, not least of all to check cross-browser compatibility. IE because 99% of my members use it; FF because of Firebug only, since it is so slow starting up on my system that I often wonder if it is going to start at all!

The reason for the post is that I have discovered that the 4-finger salute, CTRL+ALT+SHFT+Refresh, does not work in Chrome. This isn't a show-stopper, but it is annoying since it works fine in the other two browsers.

Can the staff please take a look at this?

TIA

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

It's actually a browser feature, nothing directly related to with ocPortal. All ocPortal does is listen for a certain HTTP header that the salute generators.

In v3 I think you can add &keep_nocache=1 to the URL temporarily to force the cache to empty, and in v4 it is &keep_cache=0. I can't remember how well this worked on v3, but it's definitely worth a try. I know I use it a lot on v4 as I don't think the salute works on macs.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

The no_cache=1 works a treat in version 3, Chris.

Will make a 'note' in Admin notes for both versions!

Thanks.
