Reset Skin Version guid

Would it be possible to run a scheduled task on the server to reset the skin version guid? Trigger the reset from a script?

Re: Reset Skin Version guid

if you're able to write a scheduled task to run a sql script to update the database you could do it.

UPDATE mp_SiteSettingsEx
SET KeyValue = CONVERT(varchar(36),newid())
WHERE KeyName = 'SkinVersion'

However site settings is cached for a few minutes at a time by default so the change would not happen instantly if the cache was new.

Also seems a very weird thing to ever need to do this, skins don't normally change that frequently.

That's perfect. Thanks Joe! I have a perfectly good non-weird reason to do this; however,  weird things built this world!
