Bug with game maps?
Hi, so I'm running a game for the first time on RPOL and I'm having an issue with the game maps.

I uploaded one map earlier to Group 0 but have since decided to use a different image for that and to move the previous Group 0 map to Group 1.

I uploaded the image that was originally on the Group 0 map to Group 1 first, and also removed the image from Group 0 at the same time. Then I went back in and tried to upload the new image to Group 0. For some reason, even though it shows the correct file name in the upload, it keeps reverting to the original image I had loaded into the Group 0 map. I also tried removing that image from Group 1 and uploading the new map I wanted on Group 0 to that, instead, just to try to get it so my players could see it at all but now the original Group 0 image is stuck on Group 1 as well. I have tried several times, have refreshed and restarted the browser, etc. but nothing is working to fix this issue. I seem to be able to have either no map for Groups 1 and 0, or the first map I uploaded there, but I cannot upload a new file.

Is this a bug or am I missing something?

Thanks

Generally seeing old map images is due to your browser pulling from its cache instead of from the RPoL server.

Refreshing doesn't always fix the issue, sometimes you have to clear the browser's cache so it's forced to download the new image file.

Thank you, I will give that a try.

Edit:
OK well, I'm not home anymore to clear the cache but I imagine that was the issue because I tried it from my phone just now and it worked. Thanks!

You don't need to clear the cache, you just need to do a hard refresh:  hold the shift key when you click refresh.  The maps page unfortunately posts its selection rather than putting it in a get, so it might pop up the browser's "Do you want to re-submit the form?" window, but it's safe to choose yes (in that case, not in all cases).
