Replaced Image Not Showing on Site ~ CDN

How to Push Updates to Your Images to Show on Live Website

Due to the way images are served, it can take time for a replaced image to update on all pages where it's displayed online.

We use a CDN - Content Delivery Network. A content delivery network makes copies of the content - in this case images - and saves them on servers all around the country (and world). These are very  fast.

Since the CDN makes a copy of the image, it will not have the latest copy when the content changes.

Changing the CDN Version adds an extra url parameter to images to bust the old images cached by the CDN. In most cases, changing the CDN version will cause all images on the site to reload fresh. This is useful in cases where watermarks or replaced images are not updating properly.

Here's how to do this:

  • login to FASO account Control Panel
  • click Gear icon - top right
  • click Account Settings
  • click Other Advanced Odds and Ends
  • scroll down
  • for cdn version, change value (just change the last number)
  • click Save Changes

If you have a Free Account (not a website plan), you can change the CDN number on one image:

  • login to FASO account Control Panel
  • click Artwork icon - upper row
  • click on thumbnail to edit the image
  • scroll down and click Show EcommerceSettingsForFutureUse
  • for cdn version, change value - any of the numbers
  • click Save Changes

The value in the cdn version field doesn't matter - only that it's new. We usually base this on the date, but you can just change the number.
