    Ok, wise RJ technology experts, I hope you can help solve this issue.

    I have an iPhone 4 with the Safari web browser that I like to use throughout the day to view RJ and particularly the forums. Sometimes, when viewing the forums, after having read a forum post, I will press the <- key to return to the main RJ page so I can read additional forum topic posts. Sometimes when I do this, the web page that appears is not the current RJ webpage, but one from about one or two months before. I then have to reload to the current webpage by clicking on the RealJock logo at the top left of the page.

    This does not happen every time. Sometimes it returns to the current RJ webpage with no problem. Other times it reverts to the same earlier web page. It is like this old web page is cached somehow.

    I don't see there is a particular pattern of when this happens or not. I checked my iPhone and don't see that this earlier RJ webpage is kept as a bookmark. I have not noticed this happens on other websites, although I don't really use my iPhone to visit that many other sites (other than CNN or USAToday).

    This does not happen when I use my Windows 7 computer with IE.

    It's got me puzzled. Not a big deal I know - just a bit annoying.

    Any of you guys have any ideas about this issue and a way to prevent it?

    I found a way to clear the Safari cache on my iPhone, and this seems to have resolved the issue.

    If this is an issue for you, just go into Settings, Safari, and scroll down to
    Clear Cache.
