delete cache

Post by Stefan »

Can I use Spiderbasic to delete the cache of the browser and the cache of the images in the browser?

untested:
[b]Kevin Hakanson on StackOverflow[/b] wrote:You can call window.location.reload(true) to reload the current page. It will ignore any cached items and retrieve new copies of the page, css, images, JavaScript, etc from the server. This doesn't clear the whole cache, but has the effect of clearing the cache for the page you are on.

Code: Select all

! window.location.reload(true);

Where does the code go? No matter where I insert it, I get an endless loop and the page reloads again and again.

Put it into a procedure and call it, when a button is clicked (for example)

Okay,thank you, but that's not what i wanted. I would like a page to run automatically without considering the page's cache and the image cache. Is this possible?

Is there a particular reason for this need?

You can try to use my HtmlPreprocessor to inject the following lines into the head-section of the SpiderBasic index.html - File

Code: Select all

<meta http-equiv="cache-control" content="max-age=0" />
<meta http-equiv="cache-control" content="no-store" />
<meta http-equiv="expires" content="-1" />
<meta http-equiv="expires" content="Tue, 01 Jan 1980 1:00:00 GMT" />
<meta http-equiv="pragma" content="no-cache" />

Unfortunately none of this works.
I have a homepage that constantly changes the pictures, but the names of the pictures remain the same. And so the browser does not load the new pictures because it still has the old pictures in the cache.
