[resolved] Setting expiry to shorter intervals (4 posts)

    Hi all - this is gonna seem like a really, really dumb question, but I cannot find any documentation that explicitly states how to set the expiry for the cached items with this plug-in (otherwise, I love this plug-in!).

    I have rotating ads on my blog and would like the cache to flush after 10 minutes - can anyone tell me which settings / fields to change in order to do that?

    Hey man, no question is dumb, only people are dumb. At least thats what people tell me when I ask a question.

    To set the browser cache expiration date, click on Browser Cache, you can set it in there.

    To set the W3TC cache expiration date, click on Page Cache.

    Thanks - appreciate it.

    Which field specifically is it on the Page Cache settings page? I'm asking because I don't have the "Maximum lifetime of cached objects" field that I've seen on screen prints about that page. Got me totally confused. Maybe I need a re-install?

    It's the "Expires header lifetime" field in the HTML section.
