Just a quick question,
Is there a way to set up a browser, or even a specific window in such a way that it is able to refresh itself every X amount of minutes? Just wondering :)

Thanks,

Zertec :tazz:

you can set your own webpage to do such a command but dont know about the whole browser. To configure your web page to automatic refrsh follow these commands:

<!-- ONE STEP TO INSTALL REFRESH PAGE - AUTOMATIC:

1. Copy the coding into the HEAD of your HTML document -->

<!-- STEP ONE: Paste this code into the HEAD of your HTML document -->

<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()",300000);
// End -->
</script>
</HEAD>

Thanks for the quick reply Tiddler,
Where is the HTML 'head'? And when I find it, I just copy all of that code you gave me into it, minus the text between /* correct? Or does the /* nullify all text in between, so it doesn't matter?

Thanks a bunch,

the code the tiddler referenced is for when you are building a webpage yourself that needs to be refreshed often...to my knowledge there isn't a way (at least an easy way) to make your webbrowser constantly refresh....there may be a registry setting that can control that...but i don't know for sure

Ah, so the only way to constantly refresh like a Geekstogo webpage would be to have editing control over that page so I could rewrite a code for a specific window?

Alright, thank you The_Tiddler and dsenette, but if it's possible, could this topic be left open in case anybody else out there has an answer, whether it be through editing my registy or otherwise?

Thank you much,

we don't close topics unless they break the rules or the original poster asks us to...so...it'll stay up for quite a while

Avant Browser has an auto refresh option, but I'm not sure about the others.
