I have a message board that I'm using but whenever somebody posts a follow-up and they come back to the main page, they do not see their message because they page is being view from the cache and they end up posting like 3 or 4 responses.  How can I make the page load everytime rather that it coming from the cache?

put the following in the head of your page:

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Pragma" CONTENT="no-cache">

or if the page is generated by a cgi, output the corresponding HTTP headers:
Pragma: no-cache
Expires: 0
