Description Misty 2007-10-01 15:15:22 UTC
If I delete a Category page, and no articles refer to the category, it still shows up in the category tree, until the user logs out and back in.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2007-10-01 15:48:47 UTC
Hmm... with no page record there'd be no page_touched timestamp to update the cache... :(
Comment 2 Daniel Kinzler 2008-07-02 08:20:48 UTC
Well, if a page is deleted, all category pages showing it have to be purged, right? So the cached bits for CT could be purged in the same way. Sadly, I have no clue whatsoever how that works.
Comment 3 Aaron Schulz 2008-12-12 14:55:37 UTC
Perhaps the ArticleDeleteComplete hook could be used with a custom job class?
