Automatic Refresh of a Page Link

Dear Richard,

I noticed that when i am on your site, it refreshes itself automatically after every couple of minutes. my impression is that you are trying to make a session variable last longer. Or i am i wrong?
my question is: how do i refresh a page without interrupting the user? I need to keep the user's session active as long as the browser is open but i would not wish to set a constant value like 20min


Reply from Richard Rost:

Yes, you are correct. There is a very small inline frame at the bottom of my site that refreshes once a minute. I do this so people don't get timed out. That was the number one complaint I used to get: people would log on, watch lesson 1, 2, 3, and then go get coffee or lunch and come back 30 minutes later only to be logged out. So the refresh frame reloading every minute will keep you logged on as long as your browser window is open.

It's literally just an HTML IFRAME with a little bit of Javascript to reload the frame. If you right-click on my copyright notice at the bottom and select VIEW FRAME SOURCE you should see the HTML for it. It's not hard.
