Support » Plugin: WP Performance Score Booster » missing a cache validator – Specify a Last-Modified or ETag header

    I realize a plugin cannot do everything, but I wanted to check just in case.

    This result is from http://Tools.Pingdom.com :

    The following resources are missing a cache validator. Resources that do not specify a cache validator cannot be refreshed efficiently. Specify a Last-Modified or ETag header to enable cache validation for the following resources:
    http://forms.aweber.com/form/24/1152732124.js
    https://forms.aweber.com/form/displays.htm?id=jIysTOzMTIxMLA==

    Here are my WP Performance Score Booster Settings:
    Remove query strings from static content – YES
    Enable GZIP compression – NO (I have another plugin that does this.)
    Set expire caching – YES

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Are you able to edit .htaccess file located under root directory of your WordPress installation? If so, could you add following code at the end of .htaccess and recheck the score?

    <IfModule mod_expires.c>
        ExpiresActive On
        ExpiresDefault "access plus 1 year"
    </IfModule>
    
    <IfModule mod_headers.c>
        <FilesMatch "\.(bmp|css|flv|gif|ico|jpg|jpeg|js|pdf|png|svg|swf|tif|tiff)$">
            Header set Last-Modified "Mon, 31 Aug 2009 00:00:00 GMT"
        </FilesMatch>
    </IfModule>

    Let me know how it goes.

    Thank you very much Dipak.

    I added the code as you recommended and it looks like it got rid of one of the culprits.

    My current Pingdom results:

    83 Specify a cache validator
    The following resources are missing a cache validator. Resources that do not specify a cache validator cannot be refreshed efficiently. Specify a Last-Modified or ETag header to enable cache validation for the following resources:
    https://forms.aweber.com/form/displays.htm?id=jIysTOzMTIxMLA==&split_id=1391391687

    If you have any suggestions about that one, let me know, but otherwise I will just not use that Aweber form.

    Overall my Pingdom score is 95, so I’m a happy camper. :O)

    Much appreciated,

    Mark

    Thanks for sharing your experience. Really appreciated. 🙂

    Hi ..
    Hope you are doing well ..

    I used this code in my .htaccess file. But after adding this code I didnt find any change, It remain showing the same lines – The following resources are missing a cache validator. Resources that do not specify a cache validator cannot be refreshed efficiently. Specify a Last-Modified or ETag header to enable cache validation for the following resources:
    My url is : ArtVault

    If need any suggestion to help me your most welcome. Thank you.

    Same here, no changes whatsoever, maybe “at the end of the file” is wrong location?
