    motd not updating when URL page is updated

    I have a url motd that i use on my server and i update a news section in dreamweaver and move it to my server. my problem is that when i do this, the game loads the page it last used so my motd stays outdated. I've tryed restarting the map and the server but still doesn't update it. It finally updated after a few days and a few restarts later. Why wouldn't this update right away? Only the main page doesn't update, the rest, links and all, update fine. thanks

    Maybe you had to restart the server.

    you can try adding
    <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache">
    into the <head> tag
    otherwise you could switch to some CMS like drupal where you can easily add news messages via the website itself, it should then automatically take care of correctly setting all caching ways and headers and so on


    im not sure if this belongs in the mapping forum though
