The other day I was trying to write some HTML to give the user the ability to reload the document in its exact state by clicking on a link. “how do you reload an html document using the <a> tag and preserve query parameters?”. At that point, it seemed pretty inconceivable to me that there was really no way to reload a document using only HTML that preserved the state of the URL. So I turned to Mastodon and Twitter for help.


tl;dr: an empty string for your link, e.g. <a href="">Reload</a>

Good to know!
