LifeWiki image caching issues

Post by muzik » January 7th, 2022, 12:19 am

I've uploaded several images over older ones over the past weeks, which has revealed to me that LifeWiki's handling of images doesn't seem to be the greatest. Even files which were uploaded over a week ago plus still show their old revisions, often stretched:

If memory serves, this is a local browser caching issue (as opposed to a server-side caching issue). I believe it should be fixable by doing a "hard" refresh in your browser (Ctrl + Shift + R in Chrome, for example).

The definitely resolves issues on desktop, although on mobile it's still an issue since I don't know of any way to hard refresh without deleting some more important data.

I mainly asked this since this wasn't an issue on any other wikis I frequent. Do other wikis have something in place to resolve this by itself, perhaps?
