After some conversation with others on #Mastodon about other caching issues with #ActivityPub & #WordPress it was revealed that it came down to the Accept headers being received by requests to the caching services. The caching services could be things like #Cloudflare or web servers such as #OpenLiteSpeed, or even WordPress caching plugins. In my case I use the OpenLiteSpeed web server caching and I started digging into how caching works in OpenLiteSpeed and how I could fix it for my WordPress site.
Right now at work I’m the lead on a project to establish a new vendor API. Unfortunately there were decisions made on key specifications of how the API was to be developed before it was handed to me. Where I work there is a lot of legacy standards and so it’s challenging to introduce new technologies as a standard. I do see that there is a constant struggle between what APIs are needed internally versus externally, for B2B integrations. I’m always looking to try to balance this out whenever I can.
