Random value in Core files for CloudFlare

If your website is using CloudFlare

It would be nice in the next version of Vanilla forums if the team added a random value to be added on in


on line 374 and 2192. This way if you make changes to your custom.css file it will not cache the old version.

My soloution was to add .rand(1, 200);

    Vanilla is already set up to handle this scenario. When you change your theme you increment it's version number which is appended to the query string for custom.css. Adding a random number completely by-passes the purpose of cloudflare.

  • so how do i change its version number thanks for the help

    You modify your theme's info array.

  • Ok I will give that a shot. Thanks for the help Todd
