Description Schnargel 2006-10-17 00:56:29 UTC
MediaWiki:Perfcachedts is placed on special pages that display cached data to display a timestamp that informs the user about the age of this 
data.

The message is placed above the page summary in

Special:Disambiguations
Special:DoubleRedirects
Special:BrokenRedirects
Special:Unusedtemplates
Special:Deadendpages
Special:Lonelypages

and below the summary in

Special:Mostrevisions
Special:Wantedcategories
Special:Wantedpages
Special:Mostlinked
Special:Shortpages
Special:Longpages
Special:Ancientpages
Special:Mostcategories
Special:Mostimages
Special:Mostlinkedcategories
Special:Uncategorizedpages
Special:Uncategorizedimages
Special:Uncategorizedcategories
Special:Listredirects
Special:Unwatchedpages

I do not find a summary message for Special:CrossNamespaceLinks.

For consistency please change the placement of perfcachedts so that it will always appear below the summary and above the data.
Comment 1 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2006-10-22 03:21:18 UTC
It always appears above the summary for me.
Comment 2 Schnargel 2006-10-22 15:42:05 UTC
Well hm ... I forgot to provide some proof:

Cache info above summary: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spezial:Lonelypages

Cache info below summary: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spezial:Mostlinked

And whatever the outcome of this is, I strongly favor to see the summary first.

(In reply to comment #0)
> Special:Disambiguations
> Special:DoubleRedirects
> Special:BrokenRedirects
> Special:Unusedtemplates
> Special:Deadendpages
> Special:Lonelypages

In this cases not the '*-summary' messages are used (f.e. 'unusedtemplatestext'
instead 'unusedtemplates-summary'). 
Comment 4 Schnargel 2006-10-22 22:07:57 UTC
Thanks, I must have missed that reading the manual.

Perhaps there could be empty fields in Special:Allmessages to show there's an unassigned message.
Comment 5 Jimmy Collins 2006-10-23 20:17:10 UTC
Done in r17224.
Comment 6 Raimond Spekking 2006-10-25 19:09:23 UTC
Please verify [[MediaWiki:Disambiguations-summary]], parameter $1 does not work
like in [[MediaWiki:Disambiguationstext]]
Comment 7 Schnargel 2006-10-25 20:10:36 UTC
It does not.
It appears the XXX-summary messages are all generated the same way in SpecialPage.php while the XXXtext messages are done separately in 
each SpecialXXX.php allowing to pass individual parameters to them.

It would be desirable to have the same parameters working in both messages for all Special pages of this kind. And while I am looking at it: 
The limit of apparently 1000 entries for these lists should be a parameter as well and not be hardcoded in the message text.

(Changing summary from "Consistent placement of perfcachedts message" to "Equal handling of text and summary messages for special 
pages")
Comment 8 Rob Church 2006-12-23 14:15:11 UTC
Note: Special:Crossnamespacelinks comes from an extension which isn't aware of
the new querycache_info table.
Comment 9 Niklas Laxström 2011-09-20 10:18:44 UTC
Can someone sum up what needs to be done to fix this bug?
