One more occurance of “retail store question” :wink:

Actually there is a solution to this problem that was at some time already used for the web interface.

@obj Would you be willing to change the query string in index.html every time you do a release?

It would only be a simple search and replace. Basically on every css and js resource you use the current release version as a query string as you see in this diff:

-               <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css?v=2" />
+               <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css?v=3_6_3" />

With the query string the browser will see it as “new file” and get the new version instead of using its own cache.
Instead of updating only on actual changes on the css/js files this approach seems easier to me as only a search/replace on release is required.

I’m not maintaining Skyview, but I can pass it on.

Note that this versioning does not help if the browser has index.html itself cached.

Caching rules for index.html are different somehow.

A simple refresh (compared to clearing the cache) will refresh the main page.
The browsers have different policies to cache css and js files a lot longer.

I suppose one could also just use no-cache on the main html file as it’s only one request and the response will typically be 304 Not Modified.

<meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate" />
<meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" />
<meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" />

Anyway i’m sure the webteam will have more knowledge than me.
Thanks for forwarding the suggestion @obj.

@Dxista
Good that you got so worked up in the other thread it made me research a solution to the problem :slight_smile:
(I know i know you deleted your answer!)

You are right. I’ll just ignore the questions from now on. I do have a ‘weak spot’ for when the same question is asked ad nauseam, specially when the answer is available just a couple of posts before, no need to use the bad search capabilities of the forum to find it.
