what is the code to make a webpage automatically scroll to the bottom when it loads?

use the anchor tag

<a href="yourpage.html#wow">goto this point</a>

On the destination page, you'd have this simple tag at the point you want to scroll to automatically:<a name=wow>

no, i want it to scroll to the bottom as soon as it loads. the visitor shouldnt have to click on a link. i just want it to automatically scroll to the bottom when it loads

Well, how are the visitors coming to your page? Use the part I posted with the #anchor.

Otherwise, use some javascript like:
<body onLoad=window.location.href="http://www.yourpage.com/default.html#anchor">to automatically drop the page to that point when somebody types in "www.yourpage.com". (Assuming that default.html is the page that auto loads on your server).

actually, its a chat script that refreshed every 5 seconds. and when it refreshes, the page scrolls to the top. but i want it to be at the bottom, b/c thats where the most recent posts are.

Then, in the refresh portion of your "chat script", use the anchor tag. It's that simple.
