Add Quicq CDN
Before you can start
- Create an account on https://afosto.app
- Under apps, choose Quicq to install Quicq
Once Quicq is installed you can start setting up Quicq for your website.
- At the top right corner under your profile, choose "Settings.
- A screen will now open with an overview of the settings of your account. On this screen, under apps, choose 'Quicq'.
- You will arrive at an overview page of Quicq with an overview of all configured Quicq CDNs. If you have just installed Quicq then there is nothing here. Click on 'Add' in the top right corner to start setting up your CDN.
- First, choose your own unique URL extension. This can be anything, but could be an abbreviation of your brand/company name, for example.
- The second thing you need to set is the path to the images on your website. Images normally reside in a particular folder on your website. The path to that folder is what needs to be set here. There are two ways to do this:
Automatic detection: this works for Magento and Wordpress sites. Enter the URL of an image that can be found on your site. You can find this out in the following way
- Right click on the image
- Select Copy address from image
- You enter this link in the field under 'Automatic detection'. Click 'validate' and wait for the notification if it succeeded.
Entering manually: Here you need to select two things. First of all the platform you are using. Second, you need to define the path to the images.
1 2 3 4 5 6 7
In the case of a product image, you can use a 📁 Images folder and within that folder you have a 📁 Product folder and within that folder you have a 📁 Category folder and within that folder the actual 📁 Product folder Your URL for images will then look something like this: https://website.com/images/product/category/flip-flops/purple-flip-flops.jpg. The URL you have to fill in at Quicq is the highest possible
path to the images. So in this case https://website.com/images/
- Based on what you have entered, you will be shown the correct manual to set up Quicq on the platform you are using. Open this manual and perform the steps it contains.
By default, images are stored in a browser's cache for a certain amount of time. This caching ensures that images are served faster once someone visits a page more often. Quicq overrides the default settings for caching that your platform generates. Under advanced settings you can control two things:
Preventing the default settings from being overwritten.
Change the number of days the image is retained in the cache.
