Hello MoeS

I'm wondering if this is because Facebook has a cached version of post? Can you please try clearing the cache in your browser and then see if the latest post comes up? Here's info on how to Clear the cache

Please let me know how this goes.

Hello Kelly,

The likely reason that this is happening is the way that Facebook handles URLs on their end. Facebook caches URLs on the server side once and we are not sure how often they refresh to account for changes. A good work around would be to change the URL (to: sitename. yolasite. com/index.php?page=new) and it should pull the up your latest changes.

I hope this helps!
