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.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

<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.
