    Cache and IE with Flash

    Hi

    Ok here's the deal: The Web site I designed is almost entirely Flash. Of course there is an HTML page that holds the movies... IE 5 and 6 on Win 98, Win2000 and XP is caching the entire page all the time. Even when I dump temp internet files and even when I hard refresh. To tried and combat this by inserting the following meta tags:

    <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache">
    <meta HTTP-EQUIV="Expires" CONTENT="-1">

    That does nothing to fix the problem in IE but Netscape 4 and 7 do not have this issue and work like a charm.

    Here is the URL: http://www.interiorredesign.ca/

    Any hints? I'm sure this issue has been resolved already.

    Merry Christmas!
    Colin

    Those meta tags are now useless because the server remembers. The best you can now do is to refresh once onload.

    PS - Making a site almost all in flash is an extremely bad idea.
    Zoobie or not Zoobie...That is the problem.

    with javascript, load the flash with a random number as a parameter:

    myflash.swf?67576576
    Don't resist to assimilation. Billions of Borgs can't be wrong!
