I have a site on my web hosts server. I frequently make changes to the site because it is under construction. When I make the changes on my computer localy, and then upload the changes to my server, I run into a "snag". when I pull the page up, it looks the same as it did before the changes. Of course, when I manually refresh the screen, everything is fine. I am concerned about the returning visitors that will not know to refresh their screen Every time they visit. I want to make sure that they have not missed any updates.
How do I set up my site so that their browser knows when to update it's files? I am thinking that someone out their is going to say using cookies. If I do this, then I am concerned about the individual who has their cookie capability disabled. Also, I need to learn how to use them too.
What should I do?
