When saving edit, updated version of page not displayed - intermittent in v1.17wmf1
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: ningauble

Multiple users at en.wikiquote report these symptoms in v1.17wmf1:

  1. Upon saving and edit, the prior revision of the page is displayed, without modifications made in the saved edit.
  2. Upon saving a new page, the "project does not have an article with this exact name" screen is displayed.

The problem is intermittent, with reports of frequency ranging from 20% to 90% (higher for users having gadgets enabled). The problem is observed in multiple browsers.
For users' original descriptions of the problem, see http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Wikiquote:Village_pump#Details_for_Bugzilla_report

(Cf.: Old bug 5311 describes this failure mode. A comment at newer bug 24737 mentions the same failure.)

+the same problem on pl.wiki

Sometimes everything is ok, but sometimes we have to trigger ?action=purge after edition. Many users complain that this is caused by FlaggedRevs, but I see the same problem on namespaces not covered by FR.

This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
