get a fresh copy everytime

When my website is updated, the new copy never shows up unless you refresh it so if a customer returns to my website the new prices are not visible? Is there a way to get the browser to get a new copy each time without caching it? I developed the pages wiith dreamweaver so I'm not sure if this is a dreamweaver thing or html thing?

what's your server side scripting language you're using?

To remove HTML cache, try add the meta tag like below:

</BODY>
<HEAD>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Pragma" CONTENT="no-cache">
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Expires" CONTENT="-1">
</HEAD>
</HTML>

More info at: http:Q_20382133.html

Also, try add below to remove the cache from server side scripting language:

In ASP:

<%
      response.expires = 0
      response.expiresabsolute = Now() - 1
      response.addHeader "pragma","no-cache"
      response.addHeader "cache-control","private"
      Response.CacheControl = "no-cache"
%>

In ASP.NET:

<%
      Response.Expires = 15
      Response.ExpiresAbsolute = Now().AddDays(-2)
      Response.AddHeader("pragma","no-cache")
      Response.AddHeader("cache-control","private")
      Response.CacheControl = "Private"
%>

In JSP:

<%
      if (request.getProtocol().compareTo("HTTP/1.0") == 0)
      {
            response.setHeader("Pragma", "no-cache");
      }
      else if (request.getProtocol().compareTo("HTTP/1.1") == 0)
      {
            response.setHeader("Cache-Control", "no-cache");
      }
      
      response.setDateHeader("Expires", 0);
%>
