#646 closed Bug (fixed)

Cache headers should be set explicitly

One thing that would be important to ensure accurate numbers is making sure the tracking image isn't cached. We should send back the following headers:

Cache-Control: private, no-cache, proxy-revalidate
Pragma: no-cache

So in core/Tracker.php, maybe do something like:

protected function outputTransparentGif()



header("Content-type: image/gif");
header('Pragma: no-cache');
header('Cache-Control: private, no-cache, proxy-revalidate');

  • Milestone set to DigitalVibes
  • Priority changed from major to normal

PHP ships with the default headers to not cache.

I agree we should probably set these headers explicitly (instead of assuming the default php configuration).

assuming PHP default.
