    Smile Stop Browser Caching

    You swore you just published the page. Why is it the same? Why has it not changed?

    So you try to publish it again and it still has not changed. What is going on? Are you going crazy?

    The good new is that you are NOT going crazy. The bad news is that your browser is caching.

    Many of you have been asking how to make it so that when a web page is loaded into a web browser, the browser will serve up the freshest and most recent version of that particular page instead of serving up a page from the browser's cache (Memory).

    You would want to do this for a few different reasons...

    1) If the page contains information that will be readily updated through a refresh command of some sort, you don't want a page in cache to thwart the process. You want the page to be reloaded from the server each time.

    2) You want your websites visitors to have fresh page reloads every time they visit your site.

    3) Another big concern is when someone is filling out forms. You really don't want the pages cached because if they are, credit card numbers and addresses and all kinds of stuff can be gathered from the cached page.

    Solution:
    By adding a simple line of code to each of your pages, you can stop browser caching by 99%.

    Please follow the below instructions....

    1) Open up BlueVoda.
    2) Open up the pages that you do not want cached.
    3) Right mouse click on a blank area of the page and select Page HTML
    4) Insert the below code "Between Head Tag" as shown below
    <META HTTP-EQUIV="Pragma" CONTENT="no-cache">
    5) Save and republish the page.



    Repeat the above steps on all the pages that you do not want browsers to cache.

    Hi Dori,

    This does not apply to Soholaunch because Soholaunch does not create static html pages.

    Thanx Vodahost. This problem has been problematic since I first started. I put and ad up for an affilite site special and it's expired before anyone read it. I used this forum a lot as a newbie, but encourage others to check back regularily for things like this is worth it. Besides, it gives me a chance to help others as well.
