How to Disable Caching in WebHelp Responsive Output

In cases where a set of WebHelp Responsive pages need to be updated on a regular basis to deliver the latest version of the documentation, the WebHelp pages should always be requested from the server upon re-loading it in a web browser on the client side, (rather than re-using an outdated cached version in the browser).

To disable caching in WebHelp Responsive output, follow this procedure:
  1. Create a new well-formed XML file and add the following code snippet:
    <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" />
    <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="-1" />
    Note: The code should look like this:
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
            <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" />
            <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="-1" />
  2. Edit the DITA Map WebHelp Responsive transformation scenario and open the Parameters tab.
  3. Edit the value of the webhelp.fragment.head parameter and set it to the absolute path of your XML file.
  4. Click OK to save the changes to the transformation scenario.
  5. Run the transformation scenario.
Result: Your additional content is included at the end of the <head> element of your output document.
