Trying to fix a leading zero bug on [[WP:BRION]] or rather
[[Wikipedia:Bugs, Repairs, and Internal Operational News]]
I used "action=raw", because the date formula is confusing
if shown in a small edit box.
After adding a leading zero for previous months below 10
there was another issue, but "action=raw" returned the old
version. A simple "action=purge" didn't help, and the wild
guess "action=raw&action=purge" also didn't work.
From my POV "action=raw" is the poor man's external editor
emulation, this oddity might also affect the real external
editor behaviour. If that's not the case please copy the
the external editor solution to the "action=raw" code.
Using action=render also doesn't change this behaviour.
The results appear to be being cached; a Squid max age is set, as well as a
client-side max age. The former cache would be cleared on edit.
It's *possible* something's being overlooked in RawPage...
it is, i know the point, it's not famous but known. Many
browsers have a cache and did not re-send the request. (With
IE, you may have special results like having a succes event
without any header received). The solution is to add a
the number could be anything (random, timestamp...) and make
the browser act as for a new request.
the same... Sure it was not the browser' cache ? should try
the add in the url )
Does this still occur?
I encounterd it last year, removing the ancient Squid hack "&dontcountme=s" from request URL helped. Not sure if it is still there.
