I have been asked to enter some code onto an online application's login page that will make the page refresh once when loaded.

For some reason the username field should state "STAFF\" within it, this happens if the user presses F5 manually.

I have tried a meta refresh line of code which works but it creates a looping effect which is no good, we just want one refresh.

You could also use php to do this: You will just need to change the index.php to your page.

[php]if (!isset($_GET['reload'])) {
echo '<meta http-equiv=Refresh content="0;url=index.php?reload=1">';
}[/php]
