Remove metatag no-cache
« on: March 22, 2008, 02:16:35 pm »

First of all , my gallery page is
I searched the forum, and even on google for the meta tag "no-cache" description and what it does. I just want to know if there will be problems by removing this meta-tag. I want to clear that i don't use registrations on gallery , and no refreshes are made by metatags. I just want to know if by removing this meta tag will improve gallery performance (and bandwidth) as the images and thumbnails will be loaded from computers cache not from server. Maybe an explanation of what this meta tag do in coppermine gallery will be good as well. thank you

This tag is supposed to make sure that pages are not being cached browser-sided, as the content of pages changes dynamically, as the position is relative. Leave it as-is if you want to stay out of trouble. It has been deliberately added to avoid issues with browser-caching.

Images and thumbnails are still cached. You can easily test that for yourself.
