Odd links?

Hi guys…

Was just wondering why when I look at the source in the browser things
link
image links have (e…g /images/view-site.png?114952392) all those
numbers on
the end? Its not a query string so I don¹t understand what there doing
there!

Can anyone enlighten me?

Thanks

Tim

Those are meant aid browser’s cache. Whenever you’ll change the image
file, a new timestamp will used to generate the links, and the browser
will know that file should be re-requested, instead of using the cached
version.
