Page Caching Problem

Had a user today complain about a custom menu not displaying correctly when a page had been redrawn. He said he added Pragma=no-cache, Expires=-1 and Cache-Control=no-cache META tags but it still wouldn’t refresh the page unless the user hit F5.

 Anyway, the problem turned out to be bad ending HTML tags, seems you need to ensure that you add /> to your meta tags otherwise they get ignored and the page content will not be refreshed.

Here’s a sample of how the meta tags should look:

<META http-equiv=”Pragma” content=”no-cache”/>
<META HTTP-EQUIV=”Expires” CONTENT=”-1″/>
<META HTTP-EQUIV=”Cache-Control” CONTENT=”no-cache”/>

Tree Menu Update

The Treemenu, that is being developed for our new website, is now coming along REALLY well. had some problems getting it fully relative but that seems to be sorted now and is looking superb.

I’m delighted that the Tree Menu is finally taking shape, it’s taken us long enough but it’s a nifty little application that I hope people will have pleasure working with.

Still lots more to do but hope to have it ready in the next few weeks

DHTML Menu Downloads

Just had a fantastic idea for the menu downloads.

As we are currently re-building our website I have decided to rebuild the download system as well. This is going to be even more dynamic than the current download system we use, creating downloads on the fly based on licensing info but with a twist.

The new menu download system will allow you to choose different themes and also make modifications to your standard download before it is actually built. This should hopefully limit the number of samples we have to store as you will be building dynamic menus before you download them.

Better get my thinking cap on and bury my head in some code.

New Milonic DHTML JavaScript Wiki

In order for us to try and eliminiate as much tech support as we can we have decided to use the Wiki system for documentation.

This system will be good because it will enable us to add documentation and users can also comment on it and add their own information.

I’m currently working on setting it all up and will post here when it goes live
