Prevent Browser Caching

Description

Are you a frontend developer? Do you want to clear browser cache for all users?
Just activate this plugin and show your work!

Prevent Browser Caching allows you to update the version of all CSS and JS files automatically or manually in one click.

Now you can show the latest changes on the site without asking the client to clear the cache.

How it works?

By default, WordPress loads assets using query param “ver” in the URL (e.g., style.css?ver=4.9.6). It allows browsers to cache this files until the WordPress core will not be upgraded to a newer version.

To prevent caching of CSS and JS files, this plugin adds query param “time” (e.g., style.css?ver=4.9.6&time=1526905286) to all links, loaded using wp_enqueue_style and wp_enqueue_script functions.
