I am runing a news WordPress website, how to make the visitors’ browsers refresh when they visit my website ?
There is a refresh plugin can do this tricky.
Force Refresh is the best plugin for requesting browsers to refresh their page. Perfect for single-page applications or pages that bring in feeds, this simple plugin will allow you to force a page refresh for users currently visiting any page of your site.
- Support for both parent and child themes.
- Allows an admin to simply click a button to request browsers to refresh their page. This is done within between 30 seconds and two minutes after making the request.
- Ability to add refreshing capabilities to any role using the “Invoke Force Refresh” capability.
- Ability to refresh on a per-page or post basis.
- Customizable client-side refresh intervals.
Many thanks @jordanleven for making a great plugin, which does exactly what it’s supposed to do. Really useful in these corona-crazy days when many of us suddenly find ourselves hosting timed live streams on our sites, and wanting to make the stream play without our users having to refresh the page themselves. If I can make one small suggestion: in Dashboard>Tools>Force Refresh please consider replacing the wording “Refresh interval” with “Refresh will occur within”. So that, with the specified time, it reads “Refresh will occur within 30 seconds” (or whatever). This avoids an unwanted implication that refreshes will repeatedly occur with a 30 second (or whatever) interval between them.
Force Refresh is brilliant. Before customers were not seeing the daily updates to the website because so many people do not refresh their browsers. They were not seeing the changes and new product added. Now I can push these changes through and customers are responding. An essential plugin for us now. Thank you!
The plugin works like a charm. The update which includes support for adding the Force Refresh capability to non-Admin roles like Editor and Author is exactly what I was looking for one of my project ! The author is very helpfull ! Thank you for your plugin !
