    Today one of our members produced a printout of our calendar. Downloaded today and printed it to show some date discrepancies. Only problem was that it was a cached version of the page and that calendar had been updated a month ago. In fact the version that he downloaded today was actually a few months old. This is what can happen when browsers are not set to get updated pages.
    Ok, so the page should have been detected as being changed, but it wasn’t because the calendar part is loaded as an insert on the page. I have since added some no-cache tags to our home page.
    <meta http-equiv=”cache-control” content=”max-age=0″ />
    <meta http-equiv=”cache-control” content=”no-cache” />
    <meta http-equiv=”expires” content=”0″ />
    <meta http-equiv=”expires” content=”Tue, 01 Jan 1980 1:00:00 GMT” />
    <meta http-equiv=”pragma” content=”no-cache” />
    Loading a calendar on this site may be similarly affected, so see if you can add no-cache to the calendar page header.
