    Webpage refresh on page load

    Hey All

    We have been having a few problems with our website, well its not our site, its more the users PC but if we change something on our website some users (externally) aren't seeing the newly added info.

    Can anyone help me out on this so that a page will refresh to the newest version on page load.

    Thanks

    Tim

    This site gives a good tutorial on how to ensure your site isn't cached, or is cached only for a short amount of time: Caching Tutorial for Web Authors and Webmasters

    The issue isn't necessarily with the site though, if the user has managed to set their browser to store the site locally, and their browser doesn't behave properly, it may not do what you want - regardless of your settings. This is the same for users who go through a proxy, if that proxy is incorrectly configured.

    Thanks, and yeah i knew it would be to do with proxies caching the data, we have a slight delay on our own network, but try telling that to external people that aren't technically minded.
