Can You Speed Up Publishing Time?

Often I publish frequently like, but it takes a very long time to show up! If I publish my site, then go to my site to see if it has published, it takes lots and lots of refreshes and even waiting over 5 minutes sometimes, to show up, but I want the published site to appear faster, is it possible?

Hello,

Your site's changes should reflect online very soon after publishing (within minutes). If you are not seeing this regularly, I would suggest that you try clearing your browser's cache. Clearing your cache and cookies regularly can help to make sure that the newest site is being displayed. Please give this a try and let us know how it goes for you.

This is a reported issue and acknowledged by email that others have also reported this issue. It has been particularly slow over the last day with approx 12 refreshes to bring up the last published version and I don't understand how one support person says it is the user and another says it is Yola. I have been told that the engineers are aware and doing something about this. I hope it hasn't been buried.

Hi

Thank you for your input and comments on this problem. I've just consulted with one of our engineers who handles publishing issues.

He has confirmed that there is usually a few seconds (up to 60 seconds) caching after publishing. However, after that, the changes will show up on your published site. We are working on improving this caching issue though.

Furthermore, he has consulted publishing analysis graphs and says there has been minimal delays on our servers in the past two weeks.

As Brianna has said on the top of this forum post, it usually takes a minute or so for the changes to show up. If you do not see the changes after this time, please do clear the cache in your browser and try again.

Hope this is helpful!

Thanks for the replies, it's nice to know it's not just me, I acknowledge the idea of clearing my caches and cookies, but right now I'd rather not, I guess if I have to wait a little I will rather than clear them.
Are you sure there isn't a way yola could fix this instead of me? I agree with Gop, if there are lots of users having this problem why not fix it for everyone in case a few can't do or won't do what your instructing them to.

I have had this problem as well and often clearing cache does not help but you have to publish several times to get it to take the changes. It only happens with yolasite subdomains though so I guess I can't complain too much on a free item! It does get annoying though.

Miss Diane. Thank you for your insight and confirmation. You have really answered two of my queries in the one. I have been trying to find out if there is some expected difference or even if there is some performance difference between sub-domains and full domains. The question was marked answered with no answer??. This for me is an important discrimination as I was worried about performance of the sub-domain and was putting off the transfer to a private domain through Yola on this issue. In fact moving away from yola for this work With an answer like this I am much more confident with the yola setup than I was with no explanation or acknolwedgement. I would like to know of any other known performance issues on sub-domains (yolasite) compared to full domains if this has been established. I don't know if others use a sub-domain as a testing ground for performance before switching to domains?

My experience with the now known issue on sub-domains was that clearing the cache made no difference to the effective republishing outcome. The delays are noticeably 5 to 10 minutes . There is still some delay on domains however and it does go beyond the 60 second limit but it is variable and is Yola specific. This could well be related to a lowered priority of Asian location wrt the network prioritising feedout?

In resposne to Sajid's follow on note; I really don't know if there are lots of people affected but I can infer that there have been other reports... :)

Thank you Miss Nazlie for your explanation of where the issue stands with the engineers.

I'm not sure what happened, I didn't clear my cache or anything but the publishing time for me has definitely sped up, its alot faster and doesn't require as much refreshing!
Thanks.
