HI! I'm having issues with my HotSpots installation whereby I make changes to a HotSpot on the back end, but then when I view it in the front-end Category map, my changes don't appear. This includes adding in photos, making changes to content, etc.

Strangely enough, when clicking into the Read More link in the HotSpots list, the changes that I make on the back end to a HotSpot do show up. (So when you're looking at the full page for a single HotSpot, my edits do appear.)

I've had to delete existing HotSpots and create new ones with the proper information just to get this to work.

Is the map caching somehow? I don't see options to clear this out. I've tested on multiple browsers, cleared out the browser cache, etc. However, the problem persists.

You can see this in action at https://mckinleypark.news/neighborhood/food-drink-guide
The HotSpot called "Pochos" in the category list has images added, but they don't show up on this screen unless I delete and recreate the HotSpot. Click into Read More and you will see the photos that don't show up in the map.

A couple other items in this Category map (e.g. Kristoffers) do appear properly, but I had to delete the old listings and recreate with new info.

Can you help me get the Category map updated without needing to recreate a HotSpot every time?
