XF 1.5 Issues with Edit function

#1
Hi there,

Im having issues with the edit function on my site, apparently some users are reporting that the edit function not saving edits properly.

Can anyone suggest where I need to be looking to resolve this problem?

Thanks

Without specific details it's hard to say.

However, the first step with troubleshooting is to rule out third party code and modifications by disabling all add-ons and reverting to a completely default unedited style, with all custom JavaScript (including ads) removed.

I have turned off all my plugins but still facing the same issue,

I performed this test:

1: paste in three paragraphs.
2. save post.
3 edit post, remove third paragraph.
4. save post.
5. edit post: You will see the third paragraph you removed is now back again in the editor.
6. press save: The third paragraph has now been edited back.

Any Ideas?

Another issue I found today was;

I made a new thread with 3 paragraphs.
I then edited post and deleted one paragraph.
Saved Edit.
the post showed only 2 paragraphs.
I then went back into edit and the edit showed 3 paragraphs.
Without changing anything I left the edit and went to the main forum.
I then went back into the forum and my new thread did not show until I pressed refresh on my browser.

Any ideas, thanks.

Ok, I think I have solved my issue!

My Server uses a software called XVarnish, Apparently it caches your site to improve speed times, I have turned it off and the problem seems to have gone away.

Thanks for all the help everyone offered.
