Geo-ip probelm?

Geo-ip probelm?

Hi Stephen,

First off - great products - both Metatemplate and MetaMod. From a marketing point of view it gives me several new branding options for geographic markets which is absolutely priceless.

I'm using pro version of both, but have a small issue, which I suspect is related to the cache, but I'm not overly technical, so any thoughts would be appreciated.

On each page there is a logo and maybe 1 or 2 modules that are customised to for geo-ip from Australia/NZ. We're trying to use different branding in those areas. Everything works like a dream - apart from the first time I go in to any give page on some days. It flicks back to the rest-of-world branding, then when you navigate to the next page, everything is fixed and from there onwards is fine.

Any thoughts on conflicts or issues that might be causing this  and how I can go about solving it?

Many thanks in advance.

Re: Geo-ip probelm?

Hi Khaled,

Yes, I think that this is likely to be cache-related. It makes sense that some pages are wrongly branded and others are fine - this would be caused by people visiting that page from other countries in the 15 minutes (or however long the cache is) before you hit it from Aus/NZ.

You should be able to test this out easily enough by turning off the System Cache plugin, and clearing all your cache pages just to be on the safe side.

You should also ensure that each of the MetaMods are set to "Caching: No Caching". They are set to that by default, but it might pay to check that you didn't change it.

Hope that helps,
