Weekly Schedule Caching Problem Fixed

I am pleased to report that the page and file caching problem that has plagued the Weekly Schedule application for several years has finally been fixed.

In order to take advantage of this fix, you will need to clear your browser’s cache. Once that has been accomplished, your browser should stop caching the HTML pages as well as any course-related files that you download from the Weekly Schedule by clicking links. Consequently, as you navigate the Weekly Schedule site and download course content, you should always be getting the latest version.

If you already know how to clear your browser’s cache, then please do that immediately. If you access the Weekly Schedule from more than one browser and/or more than one device, please make sure that you clear the cache from all relevant browsers on all relevant devices. If you don’t know how to clear the cache on your browser, here are some resources to help:

The caching problem was caused by the technology behind the Weekly Schedule Web site. It is re-generated in its entirety from time to time using an XML/XSLT workflow. In between generations, it appears to HTTP servers and browsers like a static Web site. The problem was finally solved using Apache Module mod_headers. Many thanks to the tech staff at Rose Hosting for their help installing and configuring this fix.
