Prevent Cached CSS

Snippets by IsItWP

Are you looking for a way to control the caching of CSS? While there’s probably a plugin for this, we have created a quick code snippet that you can use to prevent cached CSS in WordPress.


All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s index.php file or in a site-specific plugin:

Method 1:

	<style type="text/css" media="screen">
		@import url( <?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); ?>?<?php echo time(); ?> );

Method 2:

	<style type="text/css" media="screen">
		@import url( <?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); ?>?v=1.0 );

You can use any one method to prevent cached CSS.

Note: If this is your first time adding code snippets in WordPress, then please refer to our guide on how to properly add code snippets in WordPress, so you don’t accidentally break your site.

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="” type=”text/css” media=”screen, projection” />
