So we host hundreds of clients who use our CMS to build, enhance, edit and maintain their websites.
Since implementing Cloudflare, we’ve been getting more and more complaints where a customer is confused because they’ll update a CSS stylesheet or upload a new PDF or change some underlying JS and they don’t see the change reflected immediately, which is a reasonble request for anyone who’s ever developed content of any type.
Just today I had to throw our Caching configuration into Development mode so that all caching would cease. (Edit: And just realized that it’s only for 3 hours…)
I can’t imagine that someone hasn’t dealt with this before. We can’t use page rules to solve this because we only have 125 and we have hundreds of customers so because of the reliance on routes that goes away same with using a worker to solve this.
Does anyone have any guidance or best practices?
What would be the ideal solution for us would be for us to be able to modify the list of default documents that Cloudflare caches and check off (turn off) caching for things like PDF, CSS or JS file types.
Thanks, appreciate any advice.
