I have a postgis stored dataset that is consumed in a qgis project and served on qgis server. I noticed however that symbols and labels of point features that overlap 2 tiles of the map are only rendered in the tile that actually contains the feature. Is there some kind of buffering option or a configuration option for rendering to fix this?

So are you serving using qgis server as wms server and a tiles server in the middle? – Giovanni Manghi Aug 18 '12 at 15:51
Yes. Qgis server via mod fcgid on ubuntu server, client web application uses openlayers 2.12 to access the WMS. – U2ros Aug 18 '12 at 17:56

Okay, solved it, check the post HERE

Bottomline, you cant do anything on the serverside at this point, so what i did is, put the labels on a separate overlaying layer and made it render in a single tile.
