Leverage Browser Caching for Elementor

LBC reduces server load and load times by marking and storing certain pages, or parts of pages in the browser. Then it marks the files as being needed to be updated at various internals.

ToolKit For Elementor allows users to 1-click activate Leverage Browser Caching for Apache servers.

When you enable LBC on an Apache server, ToolKit automatically adds this code to your site’s .htaccess file:

On NGINX servers, performance plugins are not able to automatically make server-level tweaks. and so you’ll need to manually add this to your server block. Learn More Here.

location ~* .(js|jpg|jpeg|gif|png|css|tgz|gz|rar|bz2|doc|pdf|ppt|tar|wav|bmp|rtf|swf|ico|flv|txt|woff|woff2|svg)$ {
expires 30d;
add_header Pragma “public”;
add_header Cache-Control “public”;

Then, restart your server using the following:

$ service nginx restart
