in version 1.5 I customized MediaWiki:Sidebar and added 3 links
after the ugrade
MediaWiki:Sidebar is still showing correct links but the standard links are
displayed and cannot be changed....
Clear the cache.
If clearing your browser cache didn't work, this bug might be related to Bug
5092. If it *did* work, consider closing this bug (WORKSFORME).
does not work for me.
i disabled server cache, delete the Mediawiki:Sidebar and restored only one page
containing my navigation links.
unfortunatly mediawiki is still showing the default navigation bar
(In reply to comment #3)
The sidebar seems to be cached in an aggressive manner. Double-check that you
[a] purged the cache on a page using it (with action=purge)
[b] did a hard-refresh in the browser
You may find you need to do this again after the second lot of modifications you
did do this, but it doesnt work.
tried it on 3 different computers, with 2 different browsers....
any more ideas?
thanks for your help
[a] The edit went through
[b] You haven't got $wgUseDatabaseMessages = false; in LocalSettings.php
a) when i recheck MediaWiki:Sidebar i only see the 4 links i added
b) there is no such line in LocalSettings.php so i added the line
$wgUseDatabaseMessages = true;
there must be a different place where the navigation thing is stored - because
there is no other Sidebar entry in my wiki....
To clear all cached bits, do:
TRUNCATE TABLE objectcache;
Editing MediaWiki:Sidebar should also always clear the sidebar cache.
(Note that page views may still be cached.)
wow thanks a lot
truncate table objectcache; did it.
I also experienced this after upgrading from a 1.5 version to 1.6.3. As
I fixed it by just editing and saving the Sidebar page again.
Strangely, I suspect that it was working at first after the upgrade, but the
navigation menu then reverted to the standard after a few days, until I fixed it
by re-saving the Sidebar.
