    I know in the meta tags you can tell a page to refresh and then give it an
    interval, but I want to force a page to refresh when it's loaded from the
    server and not keep reloading every 10 seconds. It seems a lot of people
    have their browsers set to read from their cache (at least with this one
    clothing website I've done) and I want to make sure they get the latest page
    from the server. So is there a way to make it refresh only once?

    Use the following among your meta tags:

    <META HTTP-EQUIV="CACHE-CONTROL" CONTENT="NO-CACHE">
