    Arrow auto reload site in browser

    Hello,
    i want to make a personal homepage that will load sites from a list of sites & refresh the browser with a new site from the list every minute.
    i know about this meta tag:
    http://www.tips-tricks.com/automa.asp
    but it's only good for 1 site & not in a loop...
    any ideas?
    thanks

    well, i know that to make the page reload you could use javascript...I was thinking at the start that you could use onload.... but since you want it to wait a minute i dont know what you should use

    Hello jekyllhyde.

    The following javascript is the one that I use to select a random picture every 45 seconds on my index page.

    I am sure that it would be editable to do what you need.

    Worth a try?

    What do you mean by that? Since the meta tag appears on the refreshed page too, it will automatically be looping.
