    Dynamic page reloads

    Issue Number:

    I use firefox for my browser, and as such, I have several sites set as Tabs that load every time I start firefox. When the site is live, I intend to do the same with this site. My question stems from the fact that I keep webpages loaded at almost all times...

    Does the page, wherever you might be within the site, reload periodically? Can I have the page loaded on one of my tabs in FF and simply switch over an see if there are any new messages in the navagation section?, or will I have to hit reload whenever I switch over?

    My own preference would be that it reload or dynamically update that section and similar sections that might have 'new data/messages' posted. Is this a possibility?

    The iGoogle homepages work in this manner, at least when it comes to mail notifications on that little mail plugin. Maybe a similar feature/plugin can be used in that section instead of a static (only reloading when 'refreshed') area?

    Some of you will see some graphic anomolies when you log on next... just refresh your browser (or better yet, flush your browser's cache and then refresh).  I divided the navigation menu into three sections, so I can do dynamic refreshes of just the two lines "View Guestbook" and "View Messages" once per minute.  So even if you've got the page in a tab and hidden away, it will query refresh of those two lines in the navigation menu each 60 seconds, to inform you of new messages.  This is a lighter load on the server than complete page refreshes, and should do the trick quite nicely.
