[EP-tech] Re: EPrints Item Upload Screen & IE Cache

Hi Greg,

We have experienced the same issue, but I believe it’s an issue with IE, not ePrints. It’s holding onto a cached item when it shouldn’t be. I believe out institution are using IE 9 at the moment. Not sure if it’s still an issue in the newer versions.  Our staff generally use firefox or chrome when they are using eprints.

Subject: [EP-tech] EPrints Item Upload Screen & IE Cache


Our school staff is still getting used to the new EPrints 3.3.13 version, since we went live in the beginning of August 2015.

They have discovered a "bug" with the EPrints Upload Item/Document screen & Internet Explorer. I was just wondering if any other sites have found this.

In IE, when you upload a new version of a document with the SAME filename and click on the document icon to view the file, IE will always display the PREVIOUS cached version of the file. To view the new file contents, you have to clear out the IE cache....  We have tried playing with the IE browser cache settings to no avail.

FireFox & Chrome work A-OK.

Our IT Dept. supports IE as our official browser. Our school's theses are deposited by clerks in the departments & approved/published by the central Registrar office, so there is a lot of back & forth of PDF file versions between them....
