Description folengo 2006-01-13 14:56:35 UTC
Template {{CURRENTWEEK}} is unstable. Its value is at 
times "02" with two digits, and at times "2" with only 
one digit.

This bug happened this morning on 
Until then, the value was "2" with only one digit.

According to
WEEK , Template CURRENTWEEK is « A variable, returning 
the number of the current week (1-52). »

As the author wrote « (1-52) », not « (01-52) » the 
value should have one digit until 9 and two digits 
from 10 to 52.

RESOLVED WORKSFORME, can't reproduce this, we always produce a zero-padded
value, the documentation is wrong.
Comment 2 folengo 2006-01-13 15:16:59 UTC
Thanks for your remark, but according to what I observed 
on, the documentation was right until 

By the way, Template {{CURRENTDAY}} also displayed only 
one digit : "9" not "09", for example, last monday, 
January 9th 2006. 

If the change is definitive, it is not really a problem. 
What is troublesome is that the value switches from "02" 
to "2" and from "2" to "02" at random every minute or 
possibly every second.

Here are two screenshots made a few minutes ago, showing 
that {{CURRENTWEEK}} takes at turns both values :

The same links, with tinyurls :

Comment 5 Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2006-01-13 15:58:26 UTC
Oh excellent, PHP5 has it zero padded but PHP4 does not, and since we're in the
process of an upgrade to PHP5 you're getting it zero padded and not zero-padded
depending on the server

This bug has a parsertest called "Magic Word: {{CURRENTWEEK}} (@bug 4594)"
Comment 7 folengo 2006-01-13 16:16:50 UTC
Should we expect the same change to occur with 
{{CURRENTDAY}} with CURRENTDAY taking the value "01" on 
February 1st 2006 instead of "1" like on January 1st 
2006 ?

Not according to the fix for bug 2522, which adds CURRENTDAY2.

Sorry, I got that backwards.

This PHP bugfix in the recent v5.1.2 could be related:
