    Refresh page on connection only?

    Is there a way to force a page refresh when a user connects to my site?

    I only want this to occur when a person connects to the page. (I don't want it to constantly update in intervals).

    The problem I am having is that I may update a page several times in a day. If someone visits earlier, and then visits later (depending on their browser settings) their browser will not always reload all elements of the page (such as images). Instead it will just use the previously saved elements from the prior visit. Some of these people will then let me know that some of my info on the page is outdated -- however I have already updated it and have to tell them to hit their "refresh" button to see the latest instance of the page.

    Is there any way to do this?

    Reposting the same question mutiple times is a quick way to get booted from the forums.
    That being said, now that you have explained your issue better, yoru problem is caching, Im guessing in IE?

    You may have also noticed in that thread, that I noted I mistakenly posted the message in the wrong area. You are correct in stating that "cross posting" is against rule #1.2 of the forum -- when done intentionally. Thank you for promoting the forum rules, and in that spirit of promotion its also a good reminder to use appropriate tact in postings to ensure compliance with rule #1.1 Always be respectful and polite when posting.

    That was indeed very helpful and is the information I have been looking for. Thank you.

    Then let me cordially remind you of using common sense: If you have accidentally posted in the wrong section, don’t re-post it elsewhere but rather contact a moderator or report your own post (mods get an e-mail) and ask for it to be moved accordingly.
