IE10 - Internet Options - Website Data Settings
What exactly does IE10 look for when checking for newer page versions

Msg#: 4681140 posted 1:58 pm on Jun 19, 2014 (gmt 0)

I recently had somebody alert me to a Javascript error that was appearing in a dialog box when using IE.

I fixed the line of code that was causing the error but recently when he revisited the page he received the error again.

In his internet options he has the following settings:

Delete browsing history on exit - Unchecked
Check for newer versions of stored pages - Always

My questions are:

1. If IE10 is not deleting browser history on exit, is it using those pages to display content when a page is revisited?

2. When IE10 checks for a newer version of a stored page, is it checking css and js files as well?

It seems as if when users are opening pages that are stored, css and js files are not updated.

IE and most browsers, will keep an active cache until date/volume push it out. Answer 1, yes. Answer 2 no. Already cached.

Investigate "no-cache". See this page from Microsoft : [support.microsoft.com...]

I'm taking over this website from another dev. I also found the following in the .htaccess file:

# Cache all files for 2 weeks after access (A).
ExpiresDefault A1209600


ExpiresActive On
ExpiresDefault "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType text/html "access plus 1 day"
ExpiresByType text/plain "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/x-icon "access plus 1 year.
ExpiresByType image/gif "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/png "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/jpg "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/jpeg "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType text/css "access 1 month.
ExpiresByType text/x-javascript "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType application/javascript "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType application/x-javascript "access plus 1 month"

So it looks like any css or javascript files would be cached for 1 month from the first day that they are accessed, am I interpreting that correctly?

I also posted the 2nd part of this question in the Apache forum.

I started to respond to this second part, but if it is also over there we might want to delete this post here and take that discussion to the other post in the Apache Forum - just so the rest doesn't get derailed and you end up with confusion instead of answers for this.
