which way to reload a current page (using a button) would you prefer?
As the URL of the page changes frequently AFAIK a ‘fallback function’ like
won’t work for me, right?
Depends on what you want to do. The fourth and sixth methods there won’t reload any form data, they essentially make a separate visit to the page. Some versions of Firefox also have issues with the third method. Other than that, I’d go with the fifth as a personal preference. It seems the clearest.
You may also do:
wd represents window || document:
- wd.location.assign(wd.location.href) :
go to the URL
- wd.location.replace(wd.location.href) :
go to the URL and replace previous page in history
- wd.location.reload(<true/false/blank>) : reload page from server/cache/cache
