Appologies for not knowing what version this is in. But on the
'Special:Preferences' page the refresh instructions for Opera to
clear the cache are slightly wrong.
Currently (in the version I am using) it notes "IE / Opera: Ctrl-
F5". Ctrl-F5 in Opera actually refreshes all open tabs in the
window. It should be simply F5.
Trival, but could cause some grief with users when another page is
refreshed and data is lost in say a form. ;)
Thanks for your time.
This was one of many erroneous instructions in the software for some time, but I
recently worked through all the strings in all the language files to correct
them, so the current versions of the messages should hopefully be correct. [In
fact, according to my experiments, Opera doesn't seem to *have* a hard refresh
mode, and deals with caches slightly differently from other browsers anyway]
To fix messages on existing wikis, download updated source and use the
maintenance/rebuildMessages.php command line script or manually correct affected
messages using Special:Allmessages (or get those with appropriate permissions to
do one of these things).
Oh, and to find out what version a site is running, visit Special:Version
Thanks for the quick response Rowan. :) Very helpful.
