Improved caching for kits: Opt for longer cache timeout
However, we know that many of our customers use kits differently. It is common to edit a kit often while designing a site, and not make any changes to the kit once the site is live. There isn’t much benefit in the short cache time for this use case.
After ticking the checkbox, you’ll need to click “Save Settings” and then republish your kit for the changes to take effect.
A word of caution: though this will increase the cache timeout, it will also make it more difficult to make quick changes to your kit. It may take up to a week for changes to be visible to all your visitors when this option is enabled, and disabling the option won’t take effect until after a week either. Use this option only if you do not plan to make any changes to your kit.
With these changes, the following caching rules apply to Typekit:
- CSS and font files are always cached for one week.
