I am working to improve my websites speed and Google indicates that I should leverage browser caching. How can I do this in DW? Or is this not possible with DW?
My company website is:
Thanks in advance!
It's not really a Dreamweaver task. It needs to be done on the web server. Google has an article on what can be done: https://developers.google.com/speed/docs/best-practices/caching.
In your case, it would be useless. But I suspect that most people don't even know how to clear their browser cache, so optimizing what's cached and for how long would be of overall benefit, particularly if a site doesn't change very often.
David pointed to a useful article but I would offer a few points:
Make sure your images are optimized for the web. Make them the size you need them on your page. If an image file is going to be a link to a larger image file (for more detail) consider loading the larger file only on request (when they click on the link) as opposed to loading a "squeezed" large version of the file. In Photoshop, press [command]-[shift]-[option]-S or [CTRL]-[SHIFT]-[ALT]-S to "Save for Web and other Devices." This will make your image be 72 DPI and allow you to resize the image optimized for display on a browser.
