Hello,
It seems that the dummy variable being added to the webpage widget is repeating too often and therefore my presentation is showing extremely old cached data...How can I customize the dummy variable to randomize, say, a number between 0 to 20000 to decrease the probability of a repeat so soon...?

I should mention also - I am using the regular web page widget, not the android one.

Ksenia,

When you refer to the "dummy variable", I am not sure what you are referring to, can you clarify? is this custom code?

Thanks for that clarification Ksenia.

Can you confirm if you are using the latest version of the Web Page Widget? If you are, can I ask you to send a link to your Presentation to support@risevision.com?

Thanks!

I am not sure if I am. I just add it from the content option...

I update the page and the player doesn't update it even after a reboot...

Hello, Can I please get help from tech support? My player is showing old information for 24 hours until reboot happens even though the web page widget is supposed to fetch new information every minute...

Ksenia,

I never saw a link to your Presentation come to support@risevision.com, can you send that over so I can take a look?

Thanks!

Hey Ksenia,

Just wanted to report here what we found. A summary of the issue was delivered by Stuart here. After making the changes to your cache-control headers, you reported that the Web Page Widget began displaying as normal.

Hope everything is still running smoothly!
