    Ok whenever I try to add, update, or delete anything from something stored in mysql and try to call the mysql database from a different php page whenever I try going to the php I have to hit refresh for the new results to appear. My question is why is this and how do I fix this? For example I try to add a news article.. The next php you successfully added a news article bla bla click here to view what you posted.. . When I do the click here it takes me to the page that calls from the database and what i just added is not there... not until I hit refresh? Oh and I am looping.

    try adding a always changing variable to the end of your link like
    print '<a href="view.php?time='. time() .'">view your new posting</a>

    You can set a meta tag with an expiration date in the past. that'll force the page to be refreshed each time. Not sure on the syntax, though. look it up.
