Description Steven Barker 2006-08-10 22:25:16 UTC
When a wiki article has a list of (linked) dates, the dynamic dates feature may
parse the dates incorrectly, resulting in confusing output.  The URL I provided
above demonstrates the issue (the list is borrowed from an old version of
[[en:Old Style and New Style dates]]).  The problem seems to stem from the
parser preferring to match "[[YYYY]], [DD MMMM]]" over "[[DD MMMM]], [[YYYY]]".

This appears to work now, see

Dynamic dates must be disabled on enwp, I couldn't get them to change at all on your example. However, all formats appear to work correctly for the copy on testwiki. Closing worksforme.
