Avatars do not change immediately


  • GNU/Linux

    After uploading the avatar works as follows -

    1. 1.png

    2. Change avatar.
      2.png

    3. New avatar is uploaded.

    4. Go to the profile page.

      Oops, avatar is not changed (pay attention - header avatar has changed).

    5. Refresh the page (F-5).

      Now everything is fine...


    The official website nodebb is no such this problem (but you use imgur).
    I used the latest version of nodebb.

    All plugins - standard.
    From package.json


    In the console writes the following errors:

    Why nodebb works for me unfair?



  • It could be a permission problem though.
    Are you sure that nodeBB can read and write at these directories?


  • Admin

    This is just a browser cache issue, as the filename itself has not changed, so it is cached.


  • GNU/Linux

    @julian In that case, why the errors in the console?


  • Admin

    That'd be a different issue ­čśä


  • Admin

    That error isn't critical, we try to delete the tmp files after upload and if they are already deleted then you get those logs.



  • @julian I've just stumbled upon the same issue.

    I wanna get around it, what possibilities do I have, as our upcoming user-base will not be technically advanced and they'll blame the system.

    Is there anywhere a timestamp of the last changed avatar? Or how can I use a Date.now() cache-buster inside the template?



  • I had a similar issue.

    But the origin of the trouble seems to be the Nginx cache.
