Page auto-refresh

Is there a way to auto-refresh a page in Confluence?

Create a User Macro called, eg, reload60sec

No body

HTML Output code

<script language="javascript">
// Assign an anonymous function to the onload event
window.onload = function(){
// The time out value is set to be 60,000 milli-seconds
setTimeout(' document.location=document.location' ,60000);
}
</script>

Vary the time to suit. Too many reloads will distress the users and the server :)

You then add the macro once to each page you want to reload.

If the auto refresh usage is for any public display (like tv or beamer as information radiator), the simplest way is to load the confluence page in Firefox and use the auto refresh extension of firefox.

I think the easiest way would be to create a plugin that uses Javascript to do the refresh, or insert the meta refresh tag into the HEAD element.

Why do you need auto-refresh though? Just wondering, if this is for a custom plugin, probably should just do straight AJAX

Thanks for the reply, Colin.

We want the Dashboard to auto-refresh, for example, so that people can see new activity. Also, we have pages with SQL reports in them where the data is changing on a half-hourly basis...
