When not being logged in, old dates are shown in several places that use {{CURRENTDAY}}
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

In all small sections of Wikipedia dates are not updated. On the main page, I constantly see the same images of the day.

This happens when I go to the homepage anonymously.

@Umar: Please always strictly follow https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/How_to_report_a_bug . Provide separate sections for 1) Clear steps to reproduce the problem, 2) Expected behavior / outcome, 3) Actual behavior / outcome.

In this case:

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Go to https://ce.wikipedia.org/wiki/Коьрта_агӀо when being logged in.
  2. See that for today, the section on the right says "Дийнахь хилларг — 29 март"
  3. Go to https://ce.wikipedia.org/wiki/Коьрта_агӀо when being logged out.

Expected outcome:
Same date: "Дийнахь хилларг — 29 март"
Actual outcome:
Different date, five days ago: "Дийнахь хилларг — 24 март"
Other comments:
Same on https://lez.wikipedia.org/wiki/Кьилин_ччин : It says "Къе 2018 йисан 29 март я, Хемис югъ, 10:38 UTC" when logged in but "Къе 2018 йисан 28 март я, Арбе югъ, 09:31 UTC" when not logged in.

The problem gets fixed by manually purging the cached version of the page.

This problem is covered in T119366: Disable caching on the main page for anonymous users, hence I am closing this task as a duplicate.

Additionally. To see the current date and photo, you need to edit the article. Anonymously.

See what I already wrote.
