Leverage browser caching is showing ZERO on all performance tests

Hello there

My sites are hosted by SiteGround and I have enabled Leverage Browser Caching in my .htaccess file for https://newfriends2go.com/blog. I enabled it by entering the code direct and I have also tried with various different plugins. Unfortunately, nothing seems to be working, I am getting a Zero score.

I expected to see a score which would reflect items that have been successfully cached with recommendations for improvements which would also include items beyond my control to cache.

Can someone please help or offer some advice regarding Cloudflare settings to enable Leverage Browser Caching to work?

Thank you in advance

It looks like they’re just set low. Your static assets show 23.5 hours, but Google Pagespeed Insights recommends at least a week for static files.

I use my Cloudflare Cache settings to bump up the Browser Cache Expiration time. I also use a Page Rule to fine tune this for special resources where I want a different cache expiration time.

Hi Sdayman

Thank you so much fro your very prompt response. The static response of 23.hrs is a recommendation of GTMetrix, My expiration time is set much higher. I am a newbie to web building and I don’t really know about setting page rules in Cloudflare. Please see below a copy of my .htacces file, I may have things in the wrong order?

That looks like way too much work. I don’t do…any(?) of that in my Wordpress installations. I didn’t read every single entry, but my .htaccess is pretty small. And my sites pass the Leverage Browser Cache test.

In my Cloudflare Cache settings, I set it to one month. This applies to static resources which should rarely change. Plugin updates would be the exception, but I haven’t had any problems with resources staying in a browser cache for too long.

Which tool is giving your that zero score?

Hi Sdayman

GT metrix is giving me the zero score. Here’s the link: https://gtmetrix.com/reports/newfriends2go.com/PGRMxiy1
