This question originates from my post on MyBB support forum. It's been a few days so I figured I should ask somewhere else too.
I want to prevent the search engines from offering the Cached version of my pages and I want the code to work across the entire MyBB forum which is using 1.8.10. I found this at HTMLGoodies.com:
<meta name="robots" content="noarchive">
It's very very old so do we need to change it at all to use it in 2017? I found this at WillMaster.com:
<meta http-equiv="cache-control" content="max-age=0">
and supposedly it will work across all browsers which sounds way better than the first code. Lastly I found this at Tech-FAQ.com:
<meta http-equiv=”Pragma” content=”no-cache”>
But they mention it's for web hosts and is a server-side solution. So I don't know if they mean this code is intended for say, HostGator, or if it's for anyone who has access to their site's code.
Which of these should I use? Where is the code I have to change located and can you show a screenshot of the code before and after the changes? I found headerinclude in Ungrouped Templates but there is no
<head> tag anywhere.
Edit: Only the first line of the last two codes was showing up here so I added a link to where you can see the entire code.
Edit 2: Giant embarrassing typo in the title. Fixed.
