Since Splashpress Media acquired Freelance Writing Jobs at the beginning of the month, a lot of work has been going on behind the scenes by the Splashpress Media tech team to keep the site running without any extended downtime or major problems. So far so good except for one problem that I’m hearing some readers are having:
The home page is not updating with the most recent content. For some reason, some readers are only seeing content published on or before July 2, 2010 on the home page despite clearing their cache and web browser cookies.
According to the Splashpress Media tech team, the problem might be related to DNS updates. For example, if you’re accessing Freelance Writing Jobs from a computer at work, you might be stuck behind a firewall which only updates the URL DNS one time per month. The Freelance Writing Jobs DNS has been updated correctly, so the firewall issue would definitely cause a problem on the user’s end. You can read more about DNS issues when changing nameservers here.
It has been recommended that if the Freelance Writing Jobs home page is not updating for you, you can flush your DNS entries on your computer and force an update that way. However, if you’re Internet access is stuck behind a firewall, there’s probably little you can do but wait.
The tech team has offered to write a how-to for both Windows and Mac. I’ll publish it as soon as it’s available. Sorry for the glitch, but the right people are working to get you the information you need to continue reading Freelance Writing Jobs. In the meantime, you can click through to any entry on the home page and navigate through the site using category and tag links or click through to specific articles from the Freelance Writing Jobs Twitter feed or Facebook page where they are automatically posted.
