The Special:ContentTranslation sometimes a bug in automatic saving occurs
Closed, DeclinedPublic


There is a problem, when I prepare an article in Special: ContentTranslation, I leave quickly; and when opening the draft again, it shows the previous version of the salvo.

Meaning, that the gadget did not ask if I wanted to save, causing this type of problem.

There is a way to help solve this, like this: the gadget is reconfigured in the automatic saving part, forcing the user to wait (obviously, the user can refuse the saving at that moment) to completely save the draft of the translated article.

I believe that the solution is useful, in my opinion.

How the bug happens:

  1. Sign in to Chrome, Opera, or Firefox
  2. Visit
  3. Create any translation and stop by clicking on "All translations"
  4. Go back to the same translation and make changes
  5. Exit quickly by clicking on "All translations"
  6. And we go back to the translation, and the penultimate change appears

Expected results: It was to be automatically saved or at least to show a warning, like "Do you want to save this translation?".
Actual results: it is not saved and shows the old version before the change.

Hi @Juan90264, thanks for taking the time to report this! Could you please follow and provide

  • a clear and complete list of exact steps to reproduce the situation, step by step, so that nobody needs to guess or interpret how you performed each step,
  • what happens after performing these steps to reproduce,
  • what you expected to happen instead,
  • a full link to a web address where the issue can be seen?

Problems that others can reproduce can get fixed faster. Thanks again!

@Aklapper: I will take a screenshot in .mp4 to describe the bug. So that it becomes easier to understand.

Thanks. Please also provide the four points as text. Stuff shown in videos cannot be searched for. :)

@Aklapper : I ended up discovering what caused the problem said in the argument, when I saw "Salved", I had the impression
that the translation made afterwards had already been saved. Therefore, I will not prepare the video, because the video would not help, than write as the cause of the error.

@Juan90264: How to "Get out quickly"? Can you be moer specific please and cover step by step, click by click, as a list?
Which web browser is used and which version? Thanks!
