Description Rémi Kaupp 2007-07-13 19:58:51 UTC
On the watchlist, when the button "Mark all pages visited" is available (for instance on Wikimedia Commons), two clicks are usually required on this button to actually the pages visited, instead of one as expected. More precisely, I need to either :
* click on the button and reload the page, or
* click twice on the button,
in order to get rid of the bold, marking pages as "not visited".

The problem occurs with both Firefox and Internet Explorer 7.

Probably due to use of slave server; the change is made on master and the list is pulled from slave during the same request. With the slave connection already open, it's going to give data from before the change.

A simple change that might help would be to run an HTTP redirect to force a clean reload instead of showing back the list in the same request handler. That might still show you old data if the slave is lagged a bit, but it would probably usually work correctly. Would have the added bonus that hitting 'reload' won't prompt about POST data, which everyone hates.
