Subject: Pages cached when they shouldn't be
Posted on: 30/01/05 02:18am
I've recently installed geeklog 1.3.11 and while polishing the new site observed a problem: the pages are almost always cached. I almost always have to hit F5 to reload the pages (Opera), after that I usually see the changes.
Background: The server and the client are on same LAN, so no transparent proxies inbetween. Further, I've checked my Opera caches, they're enabled and are set to sensible values, proxy is turned off. Even more, I've loaded a different URL from the same server (which uses the e107 cms); I never seen the "Pragma: no-cache" header with e107; neverless, it works fine.
I'm not too sure how web (no)caching is supposed to work with geeklog, so I'm asking if what I see is normal. I've enabled the "Pragma: no-cache" metatag in header.thtml and this helped, but I'm not sure if this is the right way, in fact, I don't understand why it is disabled by default - in this case the no-caching is supposed to work in a different way?
