Refresh a page using JavaScript or HTML [duplicate]

How can I refresh a page using JavaScript or HTML?

Answers:

Answer

simply use..

location.reload(true/false);

If false, the page will be reloaded from cache, else from the server.

Answer

If it has something to do control updates on cached pages here I have a nice method how to do this.

  • add some javascript to the page that always get the versionnumber of the page as a string (ajax) at loading. for example: www.yoursite.com/page/about?getVer=1&__[date]
  • Compare it to the stored versionnumber (stored in cookie or localStorage) if user has visited the page once, otherwise store it directly.
  • If version is not the same as local version, refresh the page using window.location.reload(true)
  • You will see any changes made on the page.

This method requires at least one request even when no request is needed because it already exists in the local browser cache. But the overhead is less comparing to using no cache at all (to be sure the page will show the right updated content). This requires just a few bytes for each page request instead of all content for each page.

IMPORTANT: The version info request must be implemented on your server otherwise it will return the whole page.

Example of version string returned by www.yoursite.com/page/about?getVer=1&__[date]: skg2pl-v8kqb

To give you an example in code, here is a part of my library (I don't think you can use it but maybe it gives you some idea how to do it):

o.gCheckDocVersion = function() // Because of the hard caching method, check document for changes with ajax 
{
  var sUrl = o.getQuerylessUrl(window.location.href),
      sDocVer = o.gGetData( sUrl, false );

  o.ajaxRequest({ url:sUrl+'?getVer=1&'+o.uniqueId(), cache:0, dataType:'text' }, 
                function(sVer)
                {
                   if( typeof sVer == 'string' && sVer.length )
                   {
                     var bReload = (( typeof sDocVer == 'string' ) && sDocVer != sVer );
                     if( bReload || !sDocVer )
                      { 
                        o.gSetData( sUrl, sVer ); 
                        sDocVer = o.gGetData( sUrl, false );
                        if( bReload && ( typeof sDocVer != 'string' || sDocVer != sVer ))
                         { bReload = false; }
                      }
                     if( bReload )
                      {  // Hard refresh page contents
                        window.location.reload(true); }
                   }
                }, false, false );
};

If you are using version independent resources like javascript or css files, add versionnumbers (implemented with a url rewrite and not with a query because they mostly won't be cached). For example: www.yoursite.com/ver-01/about.js

For me, this method is working great, maybe it can help you too.
