    Hi, is there a way to add something to my url to automatically refresh the page every 20 seconds or so, I know " example.com/&refresh=30s " used to work but it doesn't seem to anymore, any other ways?

    Unless you add some code to take that GET variable and do something with it. If you have PHP support you could add the code
    Code:
    <?php
    if (isset($_GET['refresh'])){
        $refresh = $_GET['refresh'];
        $URL = "PUT YOUR URL IN HERE";
        header('Location: '.$URL);
    }
    ?>

    I need it as a normal url because it's on a website that has people automtically views each others youtube videos but if i put my url with the refresh it will keep doing my video because its done automatically so people do it away from keyboard or just don't check on it.

    I don't know if it will work but its worth a shot.

    I know, but if i changed my url to youtube.com/&refresh=20 then 10 seconds before my video finishes it would refresh the page and i would get another view, the people watching the videos wont release because there afk and ill get alot of views from alot of people.

    What about a cronjob? You can set it from your cpanel if you have access to it. The command is something like:

    Code:
    /usr/bin/wget http://mywebpage.com/index.php >/dev/null
    Then you can select how many times you want to refresh it.
