    I have designed several web sites and am having the problem that when I go to check the update, the old version is there until I hit "refresh". Is there an easy (or hard) way to correct this? I know about the meta tag that refreshes a screen, but I was wondering if there is another way that does it automatically.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. One site I just finished is http://www.floydpatterson.org/

    Thanks and have a great week.

    from what i know, i think a lot of browsers ignore the meta setting(for refresh anyway) and well browser options may disable this feature so i foundthis link which has a javascript snippet which could be useful to you

    check it out, hope it helps

    Their browser is caching the site. What the browser is doing wrong is not consulting the server to see if a new version of the content is available, or the server isn't responding with the right message.

    HTML Code:
    <meta http-equiv="cache-control" content="no-cache" />

    Sweet thanks for the swift responses. I think the meta no cache will be the way to go.
    Thanks a bunch,
    Anthony
