Hi guys,

I've just updated my website with new graphics and everything, however, some of my users are experiencing problems with displaying the new content because they still have the one stuff in their cache. My question is, is there any way i can force their browsers to reload my page from scratch when they visit my site? If so, how do i do this. I'm a complete newbie when it comes to coding, so please, explain it to me like i'm a 2 year old. lol. Any help will be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!

Thank you! Where exactly do i insert this code? Also, i'm using frames on my webpage (i know i know, very unprofessional), so do i need to insert it into all 3 of my startup frames? What about all the other pages?

between the <head> tags of any page you don't want cached.

Just a side note: Some proxies do not obey this directive, so you will most likely still have problems with some users. Unfortunately, about the only thing you can do about that is to tell them to use shift-refresh.
