Reload images and web pages despite browser cache

Tip by Stefan Trost | 22/04/2012 at 22:14

The caching of content through the browser is very useful and reasonable, but sometimes it is disturbing. For example, if we have updated individual images or pages and we want them to be reloaded anyway and in either case.

Quickly and easily we solve the problem by attaching an arbitrary parameter to the links and images:

<a href="page">Old Page</a>
<a href="page?d=12">Updated Page</a>
<img src="image.jpg" alt=Old Image">
<img src="image.jpg?d=12" alt="Updated Image">

The parameter - what we take does not matter - ensures that the pages and images are not loaded from the cache, but reloaded from your webspace. For images and pages that have not changed, we just leave off the parameter, so that the cache can be used.
