  2. sorry to say I am not finding this plugin. I want to refresh a single page so tell me exact solution through plugin or any code for my website

  3. Hi,

    I only want to force a refresh once after I update the page or post instead of every x seconds. Please advise.

    I have installed you force refresh for site, but most pages are not edited and donot require refresh.

    Thank you


    1. Hello Peter. Unfortunately, this is not possible with the plugin described in this guide. However, after clicking the Update button in the Page/Post Editor it should refresh the page once. Can you explain the behavior you expect after a refresh? This may assist us in matching you up with another plugin with the capabilities you are looking for.
