Description Alfio Puglisi 2005-07-03 14:13:56 UTC
It seems that the description page from commons doesn't appear on all images.
These two examples are images from commons:  - shows the description  - doesn't show the
Comment 1 Alfio Puglisi 2005-07-03 14:16:31 UTC
Now the behaviour is swapped: the first link doesn't show the description, the
second does. Maybe it's affected by db lag.
Comment 2 JeLuF 2005-07-03 14:37:21 UTC
Looks fine to me.
Comment 3 Tim Bartel 2005-07-08 14:27:07 UTC
Example tested on
* [[Bild:Nettsigae.jpg|thumb|Das im Internet erschienene Bekennerschreiben]]
* [[Image:Nettsigae.jpg|thumb|Das im Internet erschienene Bekennerschreiben]]

With [[Bild:...]] the image description was not shown.
With [[Image:...]] the image description was shown.

So I thought that the language specific image tag caused that the description
from commons is not shown.
But this isn't the case. It works in other examples.

this is a problem from db/cache/server. the bug occurs more often when loading
many images at the same time. sometimes the description will not be shown. when
reloading the page, the description is mostly shown.
Comment 5 Raimond Spekking 2006-08-12 09:07:35 UTC
Is this problem still acute? I haven't seen this for month...
Comment 6 Rotem Liss 2006-08-12 09:13:12 UTC
I don't think it's a MediaWiki problem. I also see the description in both of
the first pictures.
