File page for local Wikipedia image wrongly shows thumbnail for remote Commons file
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

This page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:If_You_Tolerate_This_Your_Children_Will_Be_Next.jpg
Shows content from: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:If_You_Tolerate_This_Your_Children_Will_Be_Next_-_1930s_poster.jpg

However, there is an image for that location on Wikipedia, which is visible in the thumbnails below, or if you go to: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/If_You_Tolerate_This_Your_Children_Will_Be_Next

This might be because there's a redirect on Commons at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:If_You_Tolerate_This_Your_Children_Will_Be_Next.jpg

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Go to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/If_You_Tolerate_This_Your_Children_Will_Be_Next
  2. Look at the image on top of the page.

Expected results:

Should be a thumbnail of the local file uploaded there, for which the description is displayed below. The same thumbnail that is shown in the upload history at the bottom of that page. The same thumbnail used on the article at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/If_You_Tolerate_This_Your_Children_Will_Be_Next

Actual results:

A different image from appears, the one from Wikimedia Commons by the same name.

Notes:

  • While file history, description text, and transclusion on articles works correctly. The image preview on top of the file page, as well as the destination for the download link if clicked, are for the Commons file.

Looks like a regression. Tagging CPT and SDT, not sure where this falls under. I suppose it depends on where the culprit lies, which itself first needs to be determined.

Not a (recent) regression. It's certainly a duplicate of T212687, and related to if not a duplicate of T30299.
