Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I got all excited today when I saw an "edit" link our cooking SE FAQ and went straight to work on it - even dug up an old post asking for the FAQ to be updated and marked it [status-complete].

Then people were saying nothing had changed, and it turned out that only the moderators can see the new FAQ! All other users see the original.

Is this intentional? Is this further "moderated" by the team, or is it just a buggy/incomplete feature?

Same situation on WebApps.SE. – Rebecca Chernoff Aug 27 '10 at 22:42

Doh - we cache pretty aggressively on the sites and the old /faq version wasn't being removed.

A fix will be pushed tonight, honest!

Interesting... why can the moderators see it then, out of curiosity? – Aarobot Aug 28 '10 at 2:54
@Aarobot the /faq page isn't cached for moderators, allowing the edit controls to be loaded. – Jarrod Dixon Aug 28 '10 at 3:07
