sitenotice change does not propagate immediately
Closed, DeclinedPublic


Author: soloturn

the following happened when after changing the sitenotice. if it is really a cache problem it would be nice that after editing this would be done by the software like for the iwkipages as well:

I had the old sitenotice in the place, but the new text in
[[Mediawiki:Sitenotice]]. When I switched from english preference to german
preferences - same.
When I clicked "save" at [[Mediawiki:Sitenotice]] the sitenotice text changed.
I didn't change anything so there is no new revision.

I conclude that this is a caching "problem".
Try adding "&action=Purge" to the URL once. Then it should work.
Caches are also purged once a day, so after a day the problem will be gone

Version: unspecified
Severity: enhancement

Caching is a known problem that does not need to be fixed any further (you don't seem to be asking for it to be fixed either, you are just stating that a problem exists and it's easy to fix).
