    Webpage Refresh

    I am relatively new to this webpage business so forgive me. My question pertains to making changes to a webpage and having those show up on the web.

    I have made changes to the main page and uploaded them to the server. When I open the page the changes are not showing up without a browser refresh. I assume the problem is that the page is being cached. How do I force a page to be reloaded so that the end user does not have to clear their cache to see the changes.

    Thanks for your help.

    Check out the CACHE-CONTROL tag name. Be sure to read the description because it has important info.

    You may regret forcing a refresh, and, in many cases it may be unnecessary anyway. Why? because cache content over a day old may be regarded as "dirty" anyway. So, although it is a problem to you as a developer, it may not be a problem to users, unless the delay of a day is significant.

    in case if you want your page refresh always while you are working on its developement, you can press Ctrl+F5 to refresh the page, or you can add a random number in your url as a query string.

    like http://www.domain.com/page.html?9896
