Currently edited by symbol in edit mode is always showing


In edit mode the symbol for "Currently edited by" (next to the page in the page tree) is always showing even though the page isn't currently edited. Any idea what I can do to make it work correctly?

There is a scheduled job in admin that removes currently edited pages.

Maybe I should clarify that a bit, it doesn't remove the pages, but the status "Currently edited by".

I'm experiencing a similar issue, and I've run the scheduled job several times without success.

Is there some way to resolve this with code, or perhaps setting some flag directly in the database?

Any solution to this yet?

I've not found any solution on my own yet, Nicklas, and I've not seen any on EPiServer World either.

Same problem here.. The scheduled job seems to work in the sense that i does delete data from the dynamic datastore (bigtable), and the InUseNotificationStore seems to update the cache properly... But still the currently edited by-icon is stuck in the pagetree :-( Even site-restart/clearing cache don't work. I thought maybe the editedby-status was cached somewhere else, but no change after resetting the site.

Where can I find the code that decides to show/hide the icon in the pagetree?

For future reference, this was a known bug #91184 fixed in CMS 6 R2 (.502) (not tested yet if it works)

Hmm, we're actually running version .502, and it still don't work :-(

In addition to upgrade to version .502, I had to enable the scheduled job wich removes autosaved drafts :)
