Latest portal not always latest

An intermitent problem with the latest posts portal is begining to occur more regulaly, every now and then it will show old threads as 'latest posts' when infact they have been posted in for weeks.

Is it threads with a poll?

No, everything

You need to post when this can actually be seen.

That would be virtually impossible im afraid as once you reload the page its ok again

I can't see anything odd there, the one way I can think this could happen is that as the results are cached, someone could post to a thread and then delete their post, thus invisibly bumping it. It sounds unlikely, but is that anymore unlikely than some fairly tried and tested code that pulls things out of the database in date order getting it wrong?

I am having the same problem. It happens very rarely on occasion but it may become worse. I will take a screenshot next time it happens because after refreshing it goes right back to normal. Not a big problem on my part though.
