"homepage refresh interval" under preferences

Hi guys,

I’ve tried setting the “homepage refresh interval” under preferences and
save it at 2 minutes or any other value, but it does work. Odd thing is in
the Main Page the “Refresh” option to set refresh interval works!

I have tried setting the default value in RT_SiteConfig.pm to no avail and I
have also cleared out the mason cache and restarted.

Any advice is appreciated,
psminusaxl

Any setting stored in your session (by changing the portlet on the
fornt page) is going to trump your Preference. You may need to log
out and log back in to clear anything stored in the session.

Thanks for the response Kevin,

Then how does one make it so that the preference trumps the front page?

From my understanding the front page refresh has to be set everytime you
sign in. So it will always make the preference setting worthless. The
preference setting is convient because it remembers it the next time you
sign in. Any ideas?

Hi Kevin,

Sorry the version of RT we are running is RT v3.8.4, so if the preference
settings is suppose to win the next time I sign in. Then its not working.
I go to preference and the settings appear to be what I’ve set it before 2
minutes. But at the front page it set as “Do not refresh”, which I didn’t
touch since I’ve relaunched.

Thanks for your help!On Wed, Apr 14, 2010 at 9:35 AM, Kevin Falcone falcone@bestpractical.comwrote:

I went ahead and remove the front page refresh option just to take that out
of the picture. And it appears the preference refresh still doesn’t work.
Any clues?

Unfortunately, all I can offer is that it just worked fine for me on a
production 3.8.7, and I’ve not seen other reports of this failing.

Anybody else can chime in? I think if I can determine where and how the
"home page interval" gets triggered I can better pin point the problem.
Right now i’m clueless the process flow of how that gets triggered.

thanks in advance…
