    Making a web page refresh at set intervals

    We have some helpdesk software which doesnt have a built in auto refresh, so when i come to update a call it takes me back to the log in page after a period of time which is becoming rather annoying!

    Can anyone suggest a solution, im thinking just setup something to refresh the page every so often, somehow?

    You could put:

    Code:
    <META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="15">
    between the head tags, where 15 here is in seconds. change number to appropriate number in seconds and it will refresh at those intervals.

    Curses, beaten to it!

    I would also suggest, though, if you can't edit the HTML code: you can use Firefox and download an extension to do this for you. There used to be one called ReloadEvery but I think that is now part of Tab Mix Plus, or one of the similar tab-improvement-packages. There has also been a Check4Change extension that would check for changes on text you have selected, that worked by refreshing the page at any interval you chose.

    It could be that the software will let you configure how long sessions stay open for as well; check the control panel for it.

    The thing is asp will have to eventually write html so the browser can display the page. Depending on how that asp page is writen you can possibly sneak in that command or get asp to add it in with maybe Response.AddHeader.
