Force Refresh


Force Refresh is the best plugin for requesting browsers to refresh their page. Perfect for single-page applications or pages that bring in feeds, this simple plugin will allow you to force a page refresh for users currently visiting any page of your site.


  • Support for both parent and child themes.
  • Allows an admin to simply click a button to request browsers to refresh their page. This is done within between 30 seconds and two minutes after making the request.
  • Ability to add refreshing capabilities to any role using the „Invoke Force Refresh“ capability.
  • Ability to refresh on a per-page or post basis.
  • Customizable client-side refresh intervals.

Feature Requests and Bug Reports

Please report any feature requests you have or bugs you encounter under the Support tab. This is a new plugin and I’m hoping to add more user-requested features to make this useful to developers.


  • Under Tools, you can click "Refresh Site"
  • After clicking the button, you'll receive confirmation that you've requested connected browsers to refresh.


Upload the Force Refresh plugin to your site, and then simply activate it. To force a refresh, just navigate to „Tools“, click on „Force Refresh“ and click the button that says, „Refresh Site.“

Before this plugin, I was living in Winslow Homer's The Fog Warning - venturing ever-so-closely to success, but stuck with an insurmountable problem ahead of me. Thank you, plugin creator, you brought me safely to shore. I needed the ability to push page updates to users on my site, but not at preset intervals - like most plugins around page refresh do. Showing a live event on a page, I wanted the ability to push a page change as soon as the event ended, to seamlessly move from video to static content - all without asking users to refresh the page or opening a new tab. This plugin made it possible. Interface is simple, and the entire operation requires a single click whenever I wanted to push new content to my audience. HIGHLY recommend. This is a fantastic plugin.
