This recipe was causing a problem where images on the wiki were not being cached by the browser, at all. Here is how I solved it:

Near top of recipe added:

 SDV($AllowBrowserImageCaching, true);

In function HandleImageDownload, to the end of the first line of the function (the list of globals), I added:


In function HandleImageDownload, just before this line

 	## file read & delivery based on HandleDownload

I added this:

	if ($AllowBrowserImageCaching == true) {
		header('Cache-Control: max-age=2592000');
		header('Expires: '.gmdate('D, d M Y H:i:s \G\M\T', time() + 2592000)); // 1 month
	} else if (IsEnabled($EnableIMSCaching, 0)) {
		header('Cache-Control: private');
		header('Expires: ');
		$filelastmod = gmdate('D, d M Y H:i:s \G\M\T', filemtime($filepath));
		if (@$_SERVER['HTTP_IF_MODIFIED_SINCE'] == $filelastmod)
			{ header("HTTP/1.0 304 Not Modified"); exit(); }
		header("Last-Modified: $filelastmod");

What this does:

  1. If $AllowBrowserImageCaching is set to true (the default), then HTTP headers are set to instruct the browser to cache the image for a month.
  2. Otherwise, if $EnableIMSCaching is enabled, then HTTP headers are set to allow If-Modified-Since caching.

Eemeli no longer maintains the recipe, if you like, and if you think your changes will benefit others without breaking existing installations, feel free to take over the maintenance. A small note about the above: You can use any variable names you like but most of the on/off variables in PmWiki are named $EnableSomething, eg $EnableBrowserImageCaching. I would NOT enable it by default (people may and do re-upload retouched pictures), and I'd probably make the cache delay configurable (probably in days, eg $ImageCachingDays = 30;) --Petko November 04, 2017, at 03:12 AM

Ah, ok, didn't know it was not maintained. I think I will make the changes you noted and do some testing and if it seems to work and not cause problems, I will upload the new version and maintain it. Thanks for the pointers! —Said Achmiz November 04, 2017, at 02:31 PM
