View Full Version : How to auto refresh files in browser
10-06-2011, 10:16 PM
I am using an FTP program to pass files to the upload directory which are then users can link to from the listing which works fine. However when I replace the file with an updated version the browser remembers the old one. Is there anything I can do to force browsers to ignore the memory of the old file.

Clear or disable your browser cache

Thanks for the tip but this only helps me and not others who I hope to use the directory. Appreciate any other ideas?

You could add <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache"> into the HEAD section of your theme template. At least that will work for browsers that respect it :)

Hi, its a simple solution that you clear you old cache and then upgrade the version. I hope then it is not happened.
