Browser Widget Appears to be caching data (JavaScript)?

Are you serving this content yourself from your web server? If so there are "cb" (cache busting) methods already well worked out.


logo.jpg  # on disk
logo-cb123455678.jpg  # in the html code

and mod-rewrite handles the translation back to the original image. So you can update "logo.jpg" without changing it's name, but your content assembly system appends the cache busting string to the outgoing html… (Ralf does this in RevIgniter)

    To refresh a browser cache I put an argument on the URL that is different
    from the last request and the cache will be invalidated. In LC I put
    "&seconds=12345678" at the end of the URL arguments or if there are no
    arguments then I put "?seconds=12345678" where "12345678" is the LC "the
    seconds". This only helps if there is no more than 1 request per second.
