    Forcing Viewers To See *New* Flash Files

    windowman Level 1
      Howdy,

      I've got a website that's mostly one big flash file. Whenever I update that file, people coming to the site will have to dump their cache files in order to see the changes made to the new flash file. Is there a way to make this happen automatically so whenever someone comes to the site they will immediately see the new file instead of the old one in their internet cache?

          Never mind; I just found the answer using a header tag:

          <!-- BEGIN INSERT --><META HTTP-EQUIV="Expires" CONTENT="Mon, 04 Dec 2007 21:29:02 GMT"><!-- END INSERT -->

          Put in any date from the past (as in before today's date) and it will force the surfer to download the latest flash file every time they bring up a new browser window to surf that webpage. Place this tag between <head> and </head>. Works great.
