Thanks @xplorer. I was able to catch it in time and find the problem. The circumstances in which this happens are:

a) User is not logged in
b) User logs in
c) The first page after logging in is sometimes cached
d) That page is then invalidated immediately in the cache
e) The cache is not purged immediately, but once every 60 seconds, leaving the possibility for the page to be served even though it was invalidated

In any event, even if you tried to do something under 60 seconds (as you did), it would kick you out as an invalid session.

Regardless, this shouldn't happen. For now, I've increased the frequency of the cache purge to every 5 seconds.

I'll see if there is a better way to do this. It's an interesting problem in the way vb handles the login session cookie on the first page it serves after the user is logged in.

Hi guys,

A change was made tonight to fix some bad URL rewrites left over from the BMT days. Should be zero impact in practice, just improved SEO --- but as always, please report any problems.

Hi guys,

Feedback requested:

The last two or three email newsletters for webinars that contained a "Register for the event" blue button, seem to not be working suddenly on some platforms such as Office 365.

The big embedded image (the image snapshot of the event) link does seem to work.

I'm requesting feedback, please help:

1. What email client do you use

2. The email titled "The Best Way To Get A Career In Trading (if you can)" that was sent yesterday -- did the blue "Register" button work?

3. The email titled "November Journal Challenge is just getting started (open to all)" that was sent this morning -- did the blue "Register" button work?

Please let me know, and please also help us make sure these buttons are working in future emails -- and report it if not. It's pretty important for our success.

Mike

The newest format of our email newsletters have a footer that looks like this:

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


This is how you can verify if you are seeing the latest version of our email template. There have been some minor changes to the format.

Have your gmail links problems continued, or have they been resolved now?

Mike

I fixed it by disable/white list ad popup for this site. All is well except the beta search is kind of slow It take a second or 2 to advance to the next page when I click on page number at bottom of the search result.

Buttons work for me on both emails.

Email client is Gmail, on Google Chrome.

Mike

My original fix was to disable AdBlock Plus on my Gmail page. That has continued to work since then.

I occurred to me after reading your email to go back and enable the ad blocker just as a test, and with it turned on for Gmail, the buttons now work.

So if you made a change on your end, it was successful. If you didn't, then I suppose AdBlock Plus made a change on theirs.

Whichever, I'm working fine, and don't need to have my ad blocker set any particular way any more.

Bob.
