Force server to load latest CSS file

/ Published in: CSS
Save to your folder(s)

This is sometimes not the best solution to a server caching your css files. But if you want to force a stubborn server to serve the most recent css file to the browser this seems to work. Could slow things down a touch, but for small css files not really noticeable.

Just change the var css to match the path to your css file, and then offer a non jscript version pointing to the same file.

Essentially by adding the query to the end of the css file the server thinks it needs to load it. I used date and getTime to create a number combo and tagged it to the end.

Use: put the following code into your right where your normal tag would go to point to your css file.
