Description :

 

WebDirect does not manage a cache for images stored in a field. Each time the web page is refresh, it generate a new path. This increases uselessly WebDirect engine or FMS to generate each time a copy of the image en the hard drive. And as well the browser has to reload every images. WebDirect should manage a cache for container fields, even with multiple users connected to the same database.
