Hi,

When I update a webpage, for some reason, when my client checks the updates, it does not display properly because of cache in the browser.

So, what is the way to force an update (not by F5 and Shift in browser) programmatically? What adverse affects can the method you describe have?

Thanks,

Ben

Hi,

Use meta tags in head tag:

<META HTTP-EQUIV="CACHE-CONTROL" CONTENT="NO-CACHE" />
<META HTTP-EQUIV="PRAGMA" CONTENT="NO-CACHE" />

Open in new window

or if you'd like to refresh page with JavaScript, use this:

location.reload(true);

Open in new window
