How to Make my webpages to Refresh every 20 seconds
« on: September 05, 2022, 01:52:12 PM »
.
As per the title, I have an image of our estuary on our web page and a script at the bottom which shows Upload/download internet speeds, but I have to go into browser settings to delete cached images which is highly unsatisfactory.

Before we used wordpress, there was a line in the page HTML which said something like "refresh content=20" or similar.

Does anyone know how to acheive this, please?

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="3600">

content is the time in seconds


put it in the header

Thanks for that, it is what I used to use on the old pages. Now I need to try and get that into the html of my Wordress page, which seems far more complicated than the old pages were. Below is a clip of part of the first few lines of the Page's html:

Hi!

You can try this, it works on my website:

<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
<!-- Begin 

/* This script and many more are available free online at
The JavaScript Source!! http://javascript.internet.com
Created by: Lee Underwood

Because this is a true refresh, you might want to put a
notice on the page that it refreshes every "X" minutes */

function reFresh() {
  location.reload(true)
}
/* Set the number below to the amount of delay, in milliseconds,
you want between page reloads: 1 minute = 60000 milliseconds. */
window.setInterval("reFresh()",60000);
// End -->
</script>
 
<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="60" />

</head>

Thanks for that, Jiveborn, I have tried to find my webpage by name via Filezilla file manager, but have drawn a blank so far. Wordpress works in mysterious ways! Perhaps I need to enquire on a wordpress forum?

However, I have inserted the code into the html for the two blocks in this trial web page and set it at 20secs for testing. It updates with a flash, but might serve its purose if I set it to 1 minute on the actual weather page?
