html help

I am playing around with the active desktop, and have decided that I want a little gif file to display the weather. I found this http://banners.wunderground.com/bann...inesville.gif, and it works, except that it only updates when I reboot the computer. How would I write an html that tells it to reload every 30 minutes?

It's not pretty but the following should be able to accomplish what you want.
Code:
< html >
< meta http-equiv=refresh content="1800" >
< body >
< img width="53" height="28" src="http://banners.wunderground.com/banner/smalltemptr/US/FL/Gainesville.gif" >
< /body >
< /html >
BTW, as you've noticed, I'm a newbie when posting HTML code in the forum. I added spaces within the tags so that the forums didn't try to interpret them. Copy and paste to a new HTML file on your computer, remove the extra spaces and you should be set.

Hope this helps.

worked like a charm. Thanks

I think some boards let you use the [code and [/code to disable the html, but not this one...
