Please describe your problem. I have a problem I wasn't able to solve so far: My users sporadically experience that after logging out, they see forum contents. After refresh or clicking on any link they are finally logged out for good. So far this is not nice, but acceptable. But in those cases they can also see a board which is only readable for Administrators - and this is freaking me out. One user even sent me a screenshot: He was on the "unread posts" page and logged out -> after that he was also able to see the unread posts from the Admin board!

First I thought it is a browser issue caching some contents. But the client's browser never should get content the users are not allowed to see!

I already flushed the Cache multiple times, which seems not to help. The issue is not appearing regularly and myself I only had it once for now.

Any suggestions out there? Is this a known issue? How could I debug this (considering the sporadicality...)

Does your site use Cloudflare or some other caching system? This type of problem has been reported previously where a caching system has been in use.

Hm good point, never thought about that. But that will disconnect a lot of my users using smartphones...

Disabling your extensions will indicate if it's a problem with the extensions or the phpBB software. i use my mobile with out tapatalk just fine 😬

Yeah, problem is that the issue is reported 1-2 times per month. I cannot turn off all extensions for such a long time :oops:

My users like it. But ok, I think I will try without that.

After having Tapatalk disabled for one month, today two users reported again the occurence of the bug. One posted a screenshot of the „unread topics page“ with topics from the Admin-only board!
