reBusted!

Description

Saves you from asking “have you emptied your cache?”.

Forked and updated for todays WordPress and PHP from the original plugin by Paul Clark.

Features

  • Safe to leave running on live sites.
  • Only refreshes browser cache for a file if it has been modified.
  • Resolves Content Delivery Network (CDN) issues. No need to purge CDN cache.
  • Multisite compatible.
  • “Just works” — no configuration necessary.

Requirements

Requires scripts use any of the below functions to load. Almost all files meet these requirements. The only case it doesn’t account for is when URLs are hard-coded. This shouldn’t ever be done, since it can break sites for other reasons.

Installation

  1. Search for “reBusted” under WordPress Admin > Plugins > Add New
  2. Install the plugin.
  3. Activate the plugin.

This is a great tool for advanced developer. It saves you from manually versioning your css/scripts or devising your own versioning solutions based on system time which would reload css/js every time, slowing a page load. This ensures only changed styles/scripts are reloaded. Five stars!

It does the job. You upload or do changes to the css, js of the site, and with just pressing the F5, everybody gets the new changes.

The style.css just wouldn’t update any more, nothing I did helped. Version numbers, flushing caches, tried all the tricks I found in the net. The domain and site owner wouldn’t answer my msgs. After hours of frusration I installed this, and.. aaaaahh! Like sunshine after a year of rain. Thank you for this plugin. Great work.
