Getting visitor browsers to load most current page
I'm new to writing HTML code and have 2 quick questions, both of which I'm guessing are pretty easy but again I'm new so please forgive me.
I'm working on updating my employers web page, but i notice that once it is uploaded online that I have to make sure I refresh my browser to view the updated page. My concern is that if a returning customer goes to view the website and their browser loads the cached information that they will assume the page has not been updated and leave. Is there any code I can use to force a viewers browser to load the most current page?
Second question is if I have a link, how can i specify that it open in a new window with a certain size. I know that <a href="url" target="_blank"></a> should open the link in another window but firefox and chrome keep opening tabs. and is there a way to specify the size of the window?
You could try no cache method: http://www.codeave.com/html/code.asp?u_log=5080
You might look into using a techique similar to that used to update news tickers. That is, require a time and date be appended onto the file name each time it is loaded... thus, never looking in the cache for the old version. Something like this:
