Forum bug in IE 7

Is not showing all the posts made on the topic when viewed in IE7, but does in Chrome. I see more if I attempt to respond and it warns me that more posts have been made. I can read these posts but it does not show me them on the normal forum topic view unless I switch teh the Chrome browser.

Edit to say it's working in IE7 now....?

I'm using IE8 and it apparently has the same problem.

My immediate guess is that it could have something to do with the way IE is handling the forum's caching features.. It may not be checking to see if a page is new until the last cache limit expires.

I'd think you could easily test this idea by refreshing the page a few-5 times. That should force it to fetch the page to show the new posts.

This is likely the servers caching software inaction. The caching was enabled due to increased load on the servers, somethng that we are working on resolving.
