The page displays a broken call to the template A when the needed template redir B was created recently, and the page gives no way to purge it
Open, LowPublic

Description

The bug occurs on fr.wikipedia.org.

The page Nil-Saint-Vincent calls the template Portail.
This template call needs the template Portail belge.
The template Portail belge exists, it has been created recently, it is a redir to an existing template.

I expect the page to display the template call nicely.

Instead, the page displays the template call broken, with a red link to Modèle:Portail belge.

I reload the page. I make sure that the navigator bypass his cache and get the page content from the server.

But the page still has the bug.

Purging the page will probably correct the display. But :

  1. The user has to know about purging. The page says nothing about it.
  2. Even if the user knows about purging, the page does not give any way to purge it.

Ideally, users would never need to purge pages. But we are far from this ideal. As a workaround, I expect the page to give a way to purge it. See the task T96476 for details.

Thank you.
