Re: how not to cache background image?

A simple solution is to add a parameter to the URL (ex. ?v=1 or ?<random_number>), and change the parameter value to force image reload. The parameter can be ignored by the server side, just used to force the image reload in the client side.

I set the background image of a web app in the root panel like this:


When I change the background image, I only change a symbolic link on the server, so the url remains the same.

However, when I change it, the users still see the old image.

What can I do, so that the change will be visible immediately?
