    When i do a performance test, I get a response saying I need to “Serve static assets with an efficient cache policy” and that page is serving following 29 resources with an inefficient cache policy.

    When I click to go to the cache status, I see that the cache types are all set at the recommended expiry period (8 days), auto browser caching is active, and hummingbird has auto detected the server type (apache). So I don’t see how else I can improve this. Any tips?

    Hello @beckseden

    I hope you’re doing well!

    This means that the tour server is not configured to have an efficient cache-control policy for headers. This can’t be fixed with the Hummingbird plugin. Please see more information here:

    Please edit your .htaccess file and add at the very top these lines

    # Cache Control and Enable CORS
    <FilesMatch "\.(js|css|jpg|gif|png|pdf|swf|svg|svgz|ico|ttf|ttc|otf|eot|woff|woff2|webp)$">
     <IfModule mod_headers.c>
        ExpiresActive On
        ExpiresDefault  "access plus 1 month"
        Header set Cache-Control "public, immutable, max-age=2628000, s-maxage=2628000"
        Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*"

    If the above will not work, please contact your hosting provider about this issue.

    Kind regards,



    Thanks, I have tried it, but i think i’ll need to talk to my server as it doesn’t seem to have changed anything. Becky.

    Hello Becky

    There could be server-side rules overriding this, let us know if that’s resolved via your hosting provider. 🙂

    Thank you,
