    refreshing matt's board

    Hey I have put matt's wwwboard into an iframe
    I set a refresh metatag at 15
    I have <meta http-equiv="pragma" content="no-cache">
    <meta http-equiv="expires" content="-1">


    yet it still takes about 3 minutes for the page to genuinely update.
    IE I post, wait watch the page refresh several times but no new info...keep waiting then it finally appears after 2-3 minutes.

    Any clue how I can get this to update faster?

    the page is refreshing/reloading
    the posted message(via matt's board) doesn't appear for oh maybe 10 refreshes

    not a perl question?
    I don't mind using perl, javascript, html...whatever you're referrring to, I just need the page updated quicker.

    I used 2 computers at my home
    posted the message with computer A
    went to the page with computer B and it was there instantly
    it didn't appear at computer A though for about 2-3 minutes.

    One has netscape one has IE
    wonderred if it was browser security/cache issue but...works the same both ways.

    I thought in Perl or maybe it's just plain ol' server stuff.
    the latest page can sometimes be found at the same URL with an extra /
    IE www.mattsboard.com/board.html
    www.mattsboard.com//board.html

    I tried that and that worked right away for each yet that only involves 2 posts. I was desperate so I tried 3 /// and then 4//// it will only work with 2.
    My site is hosted on a Unix server if that helps

    I appreciate your time

    hey,
    ok this may be your host....if your host server slow or just runing a bit behind this is prolly why and not much you can do other than get faster/better host.
