refresh

I am working on a passworded database where a user has access to only their info. Right now if you do not manually refresh you will see your last info.

I have been searching for a custom tag to automatically refresh to no luck. We tried one thing in the application.cfm, but it caused a problem in netscape and the user had a confirm box to retry as soon as they entered in their password... none of the meta tag nocache tags worked. We also tried making a session var, so that everytime you went to a new page it would run a location.reload(), but the session var still would not refresh.

Any ideas?

what do you mean by manual refresh - clciking the 'reload' button on the browser?

and how exactly can someone "see your last info"

is
<script>document.reload()</script> or
<script>document.location = "http://site.com"</script>

and use to your?

cheers.
