Problems with new posts showing up…

I love technology…..but it’s way more advanced than I am.  And it causes me to eat chocolate.


I have been having a few problems with my site and the caching.  I (well, someone is helping me…bless her sweet heart) made a few adjustments (updates) and that affected some of my older plugins and such (I know, some of this may sound way confusing…..don’t worry, it did for me too until a few days ago) and now my newest posts aren’t appearing for some, even though I’ve removed the old cache plugin.   My site seems to be stuck back on August 3rd (or others) for many people, who may not even realize that it’s stuck.  But their computers aren’t updating the new information because they’re caching the old info.  Anyway……”blah, blah, blah” makes more sense to me than things like caching and updates and all that stuff.  I just like to blog.  And make stuff.  All that other mumbo jumbo is for the smarty pants.  Haha!


Anyway, I have received emails from many who have realized that I have new posts because they are receiving the feed through their emails and such.  But when they go my site, it’s stuck on last week.  Crazy.  Anyway, are there more of you out there who are having the same issue?


How many are noticing the new posts through rss feeds/facebook/twitter and can link over to the new post that way…….but clicking on the “Home” page directs them back to an old post? What browser are you using? (Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome, etc)  Does closing out of your browser completely and then restarting it help the newest post to appear?  Clearing your history should fix the problem but if you all do that, then I won’t know that it’s fixed, if we fix it. 


And how many were having a problem for a few days but now it’s just fine?  (Did you do anything to reset it or did it fix itself?  I’m hoping it fixed itself for you.)


Anyway, I was just curious how many are/were having a problem.  Obviously, those who don’t find my site through another source will never see this.  But those that do, fill me in…..


Kind of a bummer for some of you but no worries, I’ll (with the help of a friend) get this all ironed out. 

And then we’ll all have lunch together.


Thank you again and again.

    I didn’t see any problems. I get your posts through a feed, and when I click home, all the posts show up. I didn’t do any kind of re-setting, and I’m using Firefox. Good luck figuring this out! :)

    I am having the problem a little bit. When I load your page/hit the home button in your tool bar it posts Aug. 9 and the last post. I cannot see anything newer than that by just going to your blog. I was able to get to and see this post from the link on FB. Again, when I hit the home button I can no longer see this post. I hope you are able to get it working again!

    I use internet explorer & haven’t been able to see your posts on your blog, but get the feed/updates from your facebook updates. Glad to know that this is an issue for everyone, I thought maybe I was going crazy!! :)

    I didn’t realize I was missing your posts until the one came in today. I really do enjoy your blog. When my 10 yr old GD was here this summer, she used your braided headband blog to make her own, but with only three strands instead of 5. Thank you for all your wonderful ideas.

    I haven’t had that problem at all! I’m sorry to hear that others are, because I love your new posts! I’m using Chrome and it’s been working great for me. Good luck getting it straightened out!

    I have been receiving your new posts same day you post it ( i checked) But I am having some of the same problem as you with my readers!! I post and it won’t show up new til 3 days!! I even added myself to my blog and so far I posted 2 in the last 2 days and nadda thing showing up! I use Blogger and have went through endless pages of troubleshooting and even wrote to Blogger.. nadda again..
    It really bugs me this happens as I want my readers to see those posts same day as it takes alot of your time to do these posts huh?? right?
    This has happened to me before but for some magical reason it was ok for awhile, but now its been a couple of weeks.phewy!
    I use Google Chrome, and Firefox both and it doesn’t matter which one I use to post, same thing happens(or not happening in this case!)
    IF you find out the reason this happens please let us know!! I even thought about switching over to a different source of blogging .. I’m lost = (
    OH btw,, I LOVE those baby boy leather sandals !!! so adorable!

    When I click on your website through my Favorites on my computer (I have Internet Explorer) I don’t see any new posts since the baby girls sandles. I follow you on facebook and when I click on the links it takes me to that post, but if I click on home, they are not there.

    hmmm…. I got here via my Google Next button, but when I clicked on “home” on the header, I could see all the posts I’ve been enjoying over the past 10 days! I use IE9? I think?

    I’ve been noticing this problem. At first I figured you just hadn’t updated yet, but then it went way too long between updates and I figured something was wrong with MY settings (since hubby had been messing with stuff before that). Anyway, I use Chrome and just F5ing the page made the new posts show up. I haven’t had a problem since I did that once.

    I use Google Chrome and was having trouble when I went to your site. The post that comes up for me is Aug 3. I know that you have posted others since then because I can see them through facebook.

    I just cleaned out my history and reloaded your site and the correct post came up.

    I am a brand new subscriber in Google Reader (you were a suggested site the other day so I looked and your blog and decided it was something that I would enjoy so I added you). This post showed up in my Reader and when I click on New Posts, I see all the recent posts. I am using IE9.

    Jennifer says:

    I’m on firefox and don’t have any problems with the new posts showing up. I hope you can figure it out! That is very strange.

    It’s fine for me in Safari & Firefox on my MacBook. I saw your new post come up in facebook. Mine with networked blogs I have to go and pull the feed again via FB for it to show up there for some reason.

    Hi Ashley! I get your updates through my blog reader and when I click on “make it and love it” it takes me to the post about the skirt with the fabric strips every time, but if I click on the post title it will take me to the new post. Sounds exactly like the problem others have been having. That is when I use IE9, I haven’t tried it in Google Chrome, so I don’t know if it would be different. Good luck getting the technology stuff figured out, that is all WAY over my head. :) In the meantime, I love your site!

    I was having the same problem with Chrome, but I re-typed the complete blog address rather than use my bookmark and now I’m not having any trouble getting the updated posts.

    Michelle says:

    They haven’t been showing up for me. I use the link sidebar in blogger to show me the newest updated blog posts and it has been showing me the link. If i go directly to it it works, but if I just go to your website the new updates are not on the homepage. If I go to the archives link, they are there. Otherwise it’s ‘stuck’ on the cute breezy skirt one. I use firefox 5.0 and it’s up to date. just to try it-i went to your page via Explorer 8.0 and it is working fine there, on the same computer.
    Good Luck! Technology can be so frustrating! I Love your blog.

    hi, the last email I received was the Aug 11 tote bag, so it looks like I am up to date. I use Firefox.

    Yeah I have been having that problem. I use chrome. I see the updates on FB and link over from there because the home page here is messed up for me.

    i can click to new posts from facebook but when i go to the homepage it’s stuck at the skirt with fabric and lace. i’m using chrome as well.

    I follow your blog, and I use blogger as well, so your updates pop-up. The problem is if I click “Make-it and Love-it” rather than the post feed. If I click your site name, it brings up Aug 3rd but I can click the actual post as well and then I can read it. (make sense?) If I were to click on your “home” from the post feed it would take me back to Aug 3rd again, not your newest post. Hmmm, this seems confusing to me how I am writing it. Hope it makes sense and hope it all works out! Oh, and we use Interent Explorer.

    Kathy Patterson says:

    I use Google Chrome and I was sent to the baby boy sandals and to this post, so mine must be working OK. BUT, may I make a suggestion that SOMEWHERE on your site you put a SEARCH BOX – PLEASE????? I thought that while you are tweaking, you might as well go there! I don’t know how much extra work that would be, but it would be EXCELLENT for your followers. I was so dismayed when I read in some comment about your fabric covered shoes and then had no idea where to find them! And the archives were organized by months – as if THAT would help me lol! So I searched and searched and luckily chose the right heading under “Tutorials”. I found it under “No Sew” but it COULD have been “Clothing” “Accessories” “Gift Ideas” or “Misc.” So you see my dilemma and my difficulty! A search box would REALLY help. Thanks. Love your site and have recommended it to MANY others!

    Kel says:

    Hi ladies,

    A good way to maybe bypass all this pain is to simply use Ctrl + F5 which forces a refresh and to dump all your previous cache info – it also appears to be standard across many browsing platforms. If you ever want to update a page that you’re waiting for info on etc – ctrl + F5 will do it.

    :-) Hope this helps as I didn’t have any dramas with your site??? Thank god!!!!

    I’ve still been getting your posts through my blogreader, but when I clicked on your homepage just now I was still able to see them all. Hopefully it means things are working again! Thanks for your site, tutorials, and everything you share with us. I love reading your blog!

    I see your new posts through my blog. But If I click on just the website it takes me back to the fabric flowers, but if I click on your new post it will take me to it. I use Chrome. Still does it even if I close it and open it again. Hope this helps. Good Luck. Love your blog! Thanks.

    Good luck!

    I am using Internet Explorer and I was having problems seeing the new posts. I knew that there were new posts because the description showed up on my blogslist.

    I use Google Chrome, and I wouldn’t have thought I had a problem, but I just typed in your blog address this afternoon, because I was looking without clicking on the link I usually click on from my blog, and it showed a post from several days ago, but when I refreshed the page it all came back.

    We’re all good here. I have gotten all the new feeds just fine. I use firefox as well. I just click on my blogger dashboard and follow all my blogs from there. All is well here. Oh and I sooo have to make those faux leather sandals you posted the other day. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about them.

    Charlotte says:

    I was looking around a while ago, I think it was back in late may or early June and I saw posts that had the dates 27 and 28 of July but they have never showed up again. I think one was for some cushions and the other was a little gold/brown box. But apart from that I’ve had no problems.

    I use Chrome and I see the updates on my blog. When I click on your website the new posts won’t always come up, but I know they’re there because I saw it on my blogroll. I’ve just pushed refresh each time it’s happened. Sometimes I have to push refresh more than once, but it will eventually always bring up the new post. Good luck getting it fixed!

    I use Safari on our (very old) mac and I access your site through my bookmark- I’ve been seeing all of your new posts. Sorry for the frustrating problems!
    On another note, how are you liking Colorado? We moved here 4 years ago and LOVE it! If you’re looking to connect with people South of Denver I’m in Highlands Ranch!

    I haven’t been able to see them when I click directly to your site, but I can get the new posts through my Blogger:Dashboard feed. I am using Google Chrome. I haven’t deleted my cache yet, but I will try. Also, if I hit home, I go back to August 3rd. I am sorry this is happening to you. I love your blog and I love your posts. Thanks.

    hi I use google chrome, I very rarely use my facebook and had started thinking something terrible had happened and decided to go searching.
    After reading all these comments I just refreshed the home page when it was opened and all the recent posts came up. Phew, glad everything is ok, I had not realised how much I liked checking out your blog.

    I was wondering what was going on! I didn’t think you would have this long of a break (I almost thought something had happened with your family). But somehow I clicked on something and it brought me to your updated homepage last night. This morning I went back and it’s still showing the Breezy skirt as your latest post. I pushed refresh and everything seems to be working now!

    I have been so bummed that you weren’t posting anything ever since August 5. I was worried something had happened to you or a family member and you’d stopped posting! So I just did a google search and found this posting. What can I do to keep seeing your new posts?

    Love your stuff!

      Ashley says:

      I’m so sorry for all of the trouble with the site not updating correctly. The site designer figured out that it’s a cache-ing problem (how the site saves files and pages that it frequents regularly). It’s always good practice to clear the history on your computer every now and then, so if you go ahead and do so, it should clear this problem right up. Every browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc) are a little different but if you go up to “File” and then “History” and then “Clear History” (or something similar, depending on your browser)………this should clear the problem. Let me know how that goes and hopefully that clears it up for you.

        Hey Ashley! I know I’m a few years behind on this post…ha ha…but a friend gave me a link to this post because I am having some of the SAME issues with my posts. One reader thought I was on a “blogging break” because every time she went to my site, it showed my most recent post as May 20th, when I’ve been posting at least 3x a week since then! I had some folk check and most of them are getting my latest posts on their browsers, but there are a couple who aren’t.

        Just wanted to confirm that the cache issue was all you found to be causing the trouble and that it wasn’t a plug-in or something worse. If you have any tips or advice to offer to someone in a similar plight as you were a few years ago, send ’em my way! I’d be ever so grateful.

        Thanks, Ashley!
