Description Mormegil 2005-07-10 17:20:27 UTC
Whan an image/file is deleted, the tables are probably not updated correctly:
* The image description page still pretends that the image exists (it is a
normal page
instead of "that file does not exist, you can upload it"), tries to include the
thumbnail, and links to the image (with the information about its size),
although the files are
already gone and give 404.
* All links to the image description page are blue (see e.g. to see the difference
between pages in
Image: and other namespaces).

Image metadata cache was not being cleared on deletion; this should now be fixed.

Log issue is separate, see bug 2782.
