    Exclamation Browser Refresh Issues

    Clients always complaining that after an update their browser does not show the changes. I tell them to press F5 to refresh. But I believe this is a Xara issue. This has been an issue even for myself with Chrome and other browsers.

    Also check my other post on the same issue with Apples Safari Browser.

    behzed, in a heavy development phase, I might force all fetches back to the server using META statements in the website head code section:

    <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate" />
    <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" />
    <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" />
    A useful approach is to have a Latest changes page and have it no caching so you can inform your client and client's customers that a Refresh might be useful.

    When things are quieter, setting expiry dates might be useful to say 30 days.

    You could spice things up a bit with a Page Modified block.
    Website body code:
    <script> document.getElementById("dateLastModified").innerH TML = document.lastModified;
    </script>
    Placeholder body code:
    <div id="dateLastModified">Date</div>
    .

    I am sure the modifiedDate of a page in a website could be interrogated by other pages to force an update to them.
    The problem is the one I know about is deprecated and only was for SSL sites. Automatic purging of a user's cache might not be appreciated.
