Description Yaron Koren 2007-09-04 19:04:20 UTC
When a page is first saved, if it has any red links, they will point to MediaWiki's default page (e.g., title=page-name&action=edit), even if the system is configured to point these links instead to the "AddData" form for that page. Only after the page is refreshed (in the SMW sense) at least once will the links be correct. If there's a way to add a refresh onto every page save on the wiki, possibly using hooks of some kind, that would solve this problem.
Comment 1 Yaron Koren 2007-10-17 14:16:56 UTC
Such a feature probably won't get implemented. It's easy to get around it by just disabling caching on the wiki; I added a note to the documentation explaining that.
Comment 2 Sergey Chernyshev 2007-10-17 17:15:25 UTC
Yaron, I would really like to avoid disabling cache on the wiki since it's one of the primary advantages of MediaWiki.

If it's hard to fix or needs to wait for changes in SMW, then let's just keep it and reduce the priority.
Comment 3 Yaron Koren 2011-02-24 20:36:24 UTC
Marking this as "invalid", three and a half years later, :) because the issue has now been fixed in SMW 1.5.6.
Comment 4 Sergey Chernyshev 2011-02-25 19:51:00 UTC
How's it fixed? Does it keep the list of dependencies?
Comment 5 Yaron Koren 2011-02-25 20:11:17 UTC
No, SMW now just (by default) refreshes the page every time a page with semantic data on it gets resaved.
Comment 6 Sergey Chernyshev 2011-02-25 20:16:41 UTC
Oh, yes, I got it. Closing is good then - I just changed it to fixed, even if it was done in another part of the system ;)
