Ideally a small area of the sidebar would auto refresh every 15 seconds or so so that the viewer can follow these small updates without needing to refresh the page continually. I hope that makes sense? Regards, Nick. The blog I need help with is pathfinderxxxi.com.

Would you please tell us what you would use it for? March 11, 2013 at 11:29 pm #1179815 pathfinderxxxiMember OK, thanks for getting back to me. It would be as simple as allowing html META HTTP-EQUIV=”Refresh” to be used in a text-box widget or on a page. I have tried to do this but the code is removed :). I personally would use it to display the latest information as to the location of a virtual space ship. But it could be used for a vast number of things. Regards, nick.
