http://www.knightpulse.org/ Header Links

Hello Everyone,

I was checking out the KnightPulse site, and noticed the header links have all these strange letters at the end of the links for the style sheet calls. I am hoping someone in this group might have an idea of what is causing this, and if it is normal ?

14<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" media="all" href="/sites/all/modules/tabs/drupal-tabs.css?m" />
15<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" media="all" href="/sites/all/modules/tagadelic/tagadelic.css?m" />
16<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" media="all" href="/sites/all/modules/tic/carousel.css?m" />
17<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" media="all" href="/sites/all/themes/kpulse/calendar/calendar.css?m" />
18<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" media="all" href="/sites/all/themes/kpulse/core/core.css?m" />
19<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" media="all" href="/sites/all/themes/kpulse/base.css?m" />
20<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" media="all" href="/sites/all/themes/kpulse/style.css?m" />

I greatly appreciate any feedback or insight anyone might have on this.

Thank You
Rob

The nice folks over at developmentseed.org knew of this occurance and why it was occuring.

This is something that Drupal core does in D6 to improve control over browser caching.'

The code that does is here http://api.drupal.org/api/function/drupal_get_css/6

...in which there is even a helpful comment!

// A dummy query-string is added to filenames, to gain control over
// browser-caching. The string changes on every update or full cache
// flush, forcing browsers to load a new copy of the files, as the // URL changed. "
