how does one ensure that visitors to a webpage see the newest content? I'm having problems with vistors having pages and pictures cached and not seeing new pictures and/or page modifications. How do I make it pull from web server if content is newer than their computer's cache?

thanks for the help.

I know that there is a javascripst running around for that. I looked for it on javascript.com, but I could not find it. I used it at one time, I just could not find it. Sorry.

Yes - there is some JavaSript that will do it. I don't have it to hand either! A quick search will reveal that - and probably this:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="60">

The above in the meta tag region of your page will make it automatically try to refresh itself every 60 seconds.

Opps - this board is smarter than I thought!

I have updated my original post.

You need to insert the code in the head tag - see below:

&lt;html&gt;<br>
&lt;head&gt;<br>
&lt;title&gt;Page title goes here&lt;/title&gt;<br>
&lt;meta http-equiv=&quot;Content-Type&quot; content=&quot;text/html; charset=iso-8859-1&quot;&gt;<br>
&lt;meta http-equiv=&quot;refresh&quot; content=&quot;60&quot;&gt;<br>
&lt;/head&gt;<br>
&lt;body bgcolor=&quot;#FFFFFF&quot; text=&quot;#000000&quot;&gt;<br>
Your page content goes here... <br>
&lt;/body&gt;<br>
&lt;/html&gt;

Good luck.
