Hi I was wondering what would be the correct way to implement a cache buster for the tracking pixel that EOA provides

Thanks!

Hey Alex,

We want to prevent the browser from reusing the open pixel it has already seen and cached, or saved, to a temporary memory file.

Does that help?

Thanks!

Hi Linear360,

Absolutely! Thanks for clarifying.

I’ve asked around the office and unfortunately, there is not a reliable way to cache bust our tracking pixels.

Sorry I couldn’t be more help!

Cheers,
Alex
