Header Background not changing fast for some users!

Post by danswano » Sat Nov 01, 2008 12:42 pm

When i change the header background some times it take days to be replaced with users and it becasue alot of things:

User Browser Cache
The Board Cache
Cookies


Is there any solution to make the changes appear directly on all browsers and system once it's replaced ?

Users' browsers will cache the CSS, which is drawn from style.php. Since the timestamp of style.css does not change, the users' browsers do not know there is a change. You might be able to simulate a change by editing style.php, changing nothing, and writing it back out.

I assume so, but I wouldnt know. You would have to ask in that mod's support topic.
