I'm using Magento 1.9 and in app/design/frontend/mytheme/mytheme/layout/page.xml I got the following code snippet:
<reference name="head"> <block type="core/text" name="stylescss"> <action method="setText"> <css><![CDATA[<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="https://www.example.com/css/styles.css?v=1.0" media="all" />]]></css> </action> </block>
This was done originally in order to be able to control the version of the stylesheet, and bypass several layers of caching, forcing the user browser to fetch a different version of the file.
Is there a way to replace www.example.com for a variable containing the baseurl?
P.S. Any alternative solution to add versioning to a file, is more than welcome :)
