I have successfully implemented expires headers however, for several days I have been stumped by one thing. This article: http://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/how-to-add-far-future-expires-headers-to-your-wordpress-site-1533 states
Keep in mind that when you use expires header the files are cached in the browser until it expires so do not use this on files that changes frequently.
Other sites indicate the same in my reading. But this doesn't seem to be true. I have updated an image, using the same name, several times. Each time I update and refresh my browser, the new image (with the same name) displays. I understand from this article that the old image should display unless I use a new name.
Do you happen to know where the misunderstanding is?
I have verified that the image in question has expires headers set on it:
