    automatic refresh (or reload) of webpage??


    Hi folks. I have a website that some people say that I have not updated,
    when in fact I have. They are saying this the same day that I have actually
    udated it, but they are looking at it only a few hours or maybe even minutes
    after I have updated the website.

    I know that when using IE or Netscape, you can use Shift+Refresh (or Reload)
    to force the browser to read the page again from the website instead of from
    cache. I don't know how to force this to happen in AOL, as I do not use
    AOL.

    What I really need, is an HTML Tag that I can use to for the page to refresh
    from the website automatically, everytime the page is opened. I would really
    appreciate some help with this matter.

    Thank you.

    <META HTTP-EQUIV="Pragma" CONTENT="no-cache">

    Or see MS: http://support.microsoft.com/default...;en-us;q222064

    Also the users may have the option in IE tools/internet settings/general/settings/ to never update a
    webpage.. this allows for faster web page viewing, but never get a fresh page.

    try to put this

    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="20">

    on "content" value you set the periud of the refresh, with that you get your
    page reloaded every 20 seconds.
