Issue with obtaining assets in Perch console

I was recently attempting to create a subdomain in order to serve images, and I don't know if that has affected the site but it seems that a query string, i.e. ?v=2.8.34 is being appended after filenames so: becomes

The assets in question are accessible without query string so is this normal or has something I have done corrupted the installation?

I tried resetting folder permissions on the site but to no avail.

I'm confident that I'd be able to restore the website, e.g. from a CPanel backup or manual install and creating a new database but I'd rather not do this if possible.

I have seen this before but have been able to rectify it but as of now I am at a standstill.

That's normal - it's so your browser reloads the CSS and JavaScript when the version is updated.

It should in no way affect the file loading. If that's happing, look at your server config.

You were right, it was something in .htaccess which I was using (or attempting to use) to eliminate # and ! url's in Google Webmaster tools.

Thanks again
