I am trying to edit a photo quiz, and something weird is happening. I had to swap out some photos, remove from one question and put in another, etc. I finished all that and got the photos where I want them. I clicked on "Return to Edit Quiz" -- and my changes are not showing up. I have photos in the wrong places! Can't figure out what's going on. I clicked "Save Changes" on every question, but the Quiz Editor is not reflecting what I have done on the Manage Images page. What is going on?

This is the Quiz Editor page:
http://www.funtrivia.com/editquiz.cfm?qid=364785

And this is the Manage Images page:
http://www.funtrivia.com/quizupload.cfm?qid=364785

Notice the discrepancies between questions 6-8 in particular, in terms of the photos.

This is a browser issue - the new photos have the same name on the server as the old ones when in the quiz, so your browser won't know to reload them. Use a Shift-Reload on the quiz edit page and your new photos will show up.

That's a caching issue - scared me to pieces the first time I had it happen. I can't see the edit screen, so cannot compare the two. When it happened to me, the editor to whom I sent a worried message when I resubmitted the quiz assured me that the images looked fine to them. Now I don't worry about it, and know that what I see when I am managing the images is in fact what's there, but if you want to set your mind at ease, you could clear your cache then log on to Fun Trivia again, and open the editing screen.

Wow! That worked! Thanks! Now I can get some sleep at last!

Thanks! I'll keep that tactic in mind, too!

Had this problem too, usually if you leave it for 24 hours the "correct" photos magically appear.
