This feature is supported for Internet Explorer only and only applies to blogs or wikis still using the ActiveX control. In Lotus® Quickr 8.5, standard places no longer use the ActiveX control, so this setting is not applicable for them.
As a security measure, configure the server to clear the IBM® Lotus Quickr files (files from any URL that contains "/quickplace/" or "/quickr/" ) from the browser cache when users click Log Out
from places. The browser cache is cleared only if the sign_out element in the qpconfig.xml file is set to true, if ActiveX controls are enabled on the server, and if ActiveX is enabled on the browser. Internet Explorer enables ActiveX by default.
The Log Out
link is never available to anonymous users, and to users who access places in accessibility mode on a server that is not enabled for single sign-on. The Log Out
link is unavailable to all users if you configure the server to hide the Log Out
link. If the Log Out
link is unavailable for any of these reasons, you can configure the server to prevent caching of Lotus Quickr pages on browsers.
To configure the server to clear Lotus Quickr files from the Internet Explorer cache, perform the following steps:
- Open the qpconfig.xml file in the domino_data_root directory, or create the file if it does not exist already.
- Specify the following settings in the file:
- Save the modified file.
- Enter the following command at the server console to restart the HTTP task:
