The "question mark data" = token that prevents caching issues after Joomla updates.

When you update Joomla to a higher version, its CSS and/or JavaScript can be changed. Visitors that visited your website before will load it from their cache and not the new files from the site.

If you really don't want that, you could change the 'version' => 'auto' part when the Javascript file is loaded.

For instance in the default Protostar: JHtml::_('script', 'jui/html5.js', array('version' => 'auto', 'relative' => true, 'conditional' => 'lt IE 9'));

The 'auto' adds the token. You can change it to an empty ''.

  • You can load CSS/JS via your template, via a component, module or plugin. You've to find out where the JS is loaded first. Furthermore there are many ways to load a CSS/JS file in Joomla. You can hard code the URL in the head of the template (not recommended!) or use a Joomla function like JHtml (or its modern HTMLHelper) to load it into the header.
