#4256 closed defect (fixed)

My settings / Save changes isn't working currently

Reported by: SomeoneElse Owned by: rails-dev@…

Component: website Version:
Keywords: save Cc:


If you try and change anything via "my settings" (e.g. default choice of editor, home location) "save changes" doesn't save - the page just displays "waiting for".

This was prompted by this help question:

It does not timeout but a simple test with no changes and no OpenID on my account took over 7 minutes to complete. The instances at and does not have this problem so it may be a problem with the server settings or the database settings.

The delay is related to cache invalidation, so depends on how many diary entries, comments, traces, etc you have. Plus it only happens on the live site as the dev sites don't have caching enabled.

Can the cache validation be pushed into a background task to improve responsiveness for the end user?

Patch e7a0302 seems to fix it.

Actually is was 5564bcabb not e7a0302 and it doesn't really solve it, it just mitigates it and gets us back to where we were until a week or two ago.

There is still a delay if you change the username or the picture, just not when you change other things.
