Strange Forum DB Update Issues

Hi.

I have been running blogengine.net for a few months now but lately its has only come to my attention that my blog doesn't appear to update properly.

I am not using XML storage I'm using DB storage. I will run you through my problem.

 

I write a blog post and publish it, I can see it. I give a friend a link but he gets a 404, the blog itself doesn't have the post on his end yet on my machine it does!

The only fix is by switching the storage over to xml, loading up the blog (default xml welcome post only appears in blog posts) and then switch it back to the db storage.

Suddenly the friend can now see the post. This also occurs for all comments, I get an email about a new comment that I must moderate yet I cannot see the comments until I switch the storage types around whether I am in the control panel or blog front end.

 

I am totally lost as to why this is happening. I don't want to switch from blogengine.net to wordpress but If I can't get to the bottom of the problem I will have no choice.
