expire headers

  • # December 13, 2012 at 6:03 am

    a couple of questions for me to grasp the concept:

    should i set expire headers for images to far future even if i might be edit them (optimize, resize or whatever) next week?

    what about css files? i usually have to change something in those, probably more likely than the images.

    what’s about ‘the filename has to be changed every time u edit them’?
    otherwise the cached image will show instead?
    kinda sucks to change the filename inside code all the time if they’re used in a lot of places, no?

    one could say that i have a problem with static components being somewhat dynamic… ;)

    cheers, paulie!

    i’m not going after SEO stuff though. more like a ‘best practices’ approach. heard about the headers from paul irish in his html5boilerplate walkthrough video.
