I have sites that have a redirect for the SSL cert in the .htaccess folder. Do you guys use the browser caching code that CC supplies here: https://www.coffeecup.com/help/articles … r-caching/

I have some image heavy sites and was told buy others and insight and Sonor that I should. Doesn't seem that Insight is up to date and not sure that Sonor is but makes for interesting conversation!

Thanks

Caching images has a positive effect on the loading time of your webpage.
I use for my own site this:

# 1 month
<FilesMatch "\.(gif|jpg|jpeg|png|ico)$">
Header set Cache-Control "max-age=2592000"

Thanks for the response - CCs article has a very extensive addition to the htaccess file. What is your code you have there in your post? Not sure what that means - do you place your code in the htaccess file also?

Hi Byron,

These few lines of code are a tiny part of the content of my .htaccess.
It is that part that takes care of the caching of images. What it does is, it caches any image for the period of one month.

I find that putting "leverage browser caching" into the main search engines finds plenty of information about this. Examples are this and this.
