One of my site's media/template folder continues to generate new css and js files every few days. Each file is appended with an 8-character string of random alphanumeric characters.
What I expect to see: stylesheet.css
What I actually see: stylesheet.ga83laE2.css
The site functions fine, but because new files are generated every few days, I end up having to go in and delete files (assuming they are older versions). I suspect this is due to htaccess mod_rewrite or a template's compression scheme, but for the life of me I can't figure out the cause. I thought it was the debug plugin, but switched that off.
Any ideas on the source of this? Or why Joomla isn't automatically deleting the older files when it creates new ones?
