I got a wwwboard running at my homepage.
But when a visitor adds a line he needs to refresh before he can se what he has written.
Is there a tag ( meta , java ) that refreshes the webpage once ??

<META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" content="0">
causes the page to be reloaded.

If you want to go to another page, use this instead:
<META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" content="0;URL=wwwboard.htm">

Err...that first tag is not so good after all..The page will keep reloading forever.

If you use Matt's WWWBoard, you can edit one of the .pl-files to output the second line within the already existing Thanks!-page. Then the browser will be redirected to the index.

Also, you can place this one in your wwwboard.html (or which page that displays the messages):
<META NAME="pragma" CONTENT="no-cache">

The <META NAME="pragma" CONTENT="no-cache"> tag only works width Netscape.
I need one for Explorer as well.

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Expires" CONTENT="Thu, 03 Sep 1998 04:46:35 GMT">
That time has already been which means that the page has expired and the page must be reloaded.

place a javascript reload in the form you use to submit the changes the user made

<FORM ... OnSubmit="javascript:<frame_name>.document.reload();">

If you don't use frames and if there is a "Thanks!" page displayed after a while Bluemoon's solution will not work.
