caching CSS bg images

The site I'm working on uses the same CSS background images for a number
of DIVs across most of the site. Unfortunately IE doesn't cache them.

From my reading of MSDN it seems this this is 'by design'. Is there some
way to code around this. That is, a way to force IE to create/use a
cached version?

"It's not a bug, it's a feature!"

How do you get the idea here? (URL?)

I do not know any with client-side scripting (that is what you asked for).
If IE does not cache a resource, it does not cache a resource. Period.

Hello, I hope you can help - I'm a bit new to PHP. My basic problem is with a page (HTML) which is intended to display an image slideshow. On this page there are a number of links to click (one for each slideshow topic) and a "TV screen" to view the results. The images are stored on the server as (big) JPG files - and when they are downloaded for the slideshow, I resize them with a PHP script

Hi all Very new to JavaScript, I am trying to cache a number of images as the page loads, is there a max number of images or memory usage before the browser stops caching. My PC has 1G ram so if it's a physical memory constraint then I think I am away from that. I am trying to cache about 600K images, (this if for an intranet so the page load time is fast) but I need the speed of cached images for the page to work correctly. I seem to...

I want to write code to prevent IE from caching my pages at certain times. The following META tags prevent the page from caching but images still cache: <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache"> <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache"> <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="-1"> I tried do it with asp.net but also found this only stoped pages from being cached but not images:

Hi, Our development web server (Win 2003 Server) seems to be caching the output of various files (CSS and .aspx files) if they have no query string. The moment you put a question mark in the URL, it's fine. The problem is that if you modify a file, it still shows you the old file unless you restart the website or IIS itself. It's definitely not the browser that's caching the files - IIS is actually serving the wrong file.

Does cookieless session state (with the sessionid embedded into the url) interfere with the browser's retrieval of cached images from one session to the next? Does the sessionid embedded into the url effectively limit client-side image caching to the lifetime of the session? Thanks Jake

I've built an application that scrapes JPG images of webpages and PDF instances of those webpages automatically from an RSS feed. References to the scraped resources are persisted to our database.

The fastest (and cheapest) transfer of data is that which doesn't have to be done - because the data is already there. Or still there - the caching of files is widely known and practised. Each web browser is caching the files he formerly requested from the web server. But if the file is to be loaded a second time, still a request is sent to the web server which then usually is answering with a "304 Not modified" as can be seen in his access...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
