Description Mike Chapman 2006-12-24 14:57:44 UTC
Punctuation in an image name on wikipedia causes numerous problems.  Known to be a 
problem with ampersand and plus, also maybe dashes - presumably all punctuation.  The 
thumbnails generated from the image will show up briefly then disappear and cannot be re-
generated.  Causes other problems like the "image" tab showing up as red (doesn't 
exist).  Also if the image is updated, new thumbnails will not be generated to replace 
the existing ones even after a purge.  This appears to be a recent bug as older images 
don't suffer from this.
Comment 1 Cesar Eduardo Barros 2006-12-24 23:30:21 UTC
When testing (after seeing a comment on [[WP:VPT]]), I found some bizarre cache
behaviour on the broken thumbnails.

First, two working ones, for comparison purposes:

$ telnet localhost 3128

The X-Cache header lines seem positively strange. Also, unless I'm reading the
code wrong, the Cache-Control and Content-Type headers which should be there
(from thumb.php) are missing.
Comment 2 Cesar Eduardo Barros 2006-12-25 00:23:31 UTC
Following a suggestion at [[WP:VPT#149px works but 150px doesn't]], I added a 1
at the end of one of the URLs
(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/8/81/USS_John_C._Stennis_%28CVN-74%29_%26_HMS_Illustrious_%28R_06%29.jpg/250px-USS_John_C._Stennis_%28CVN-74%29_%26_HMS_Illustrious_%28R_06%29.jpg1)
and it regenerated one of the broken thumbnails.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2006-12-25 04:59:09 UTC
The image tab is red because there's no local page on en.wikipedia.org; the
image is hosted on Commons.

Am investigating the thumb issue; there seem to be some uggy things with the
thumbnail caching system.
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2006-12-25 05:40:46 UTC
I've adjusted the caching script to, hopefully, work correctly now for this case.

Can you confirm correct behavior now?
Comment 5 Cesar Eduardo Barros 2006-12-25 16:02:41 UTC
After purging a couple of times on commons, the 740px thumbnail is still in the
broken state:

The problem might be fixed, but purging doesn't seem to be enough to clear the
bogus entries. Unfortunately, I don't know how to check if the problem which
created these bogus entries in the first place has really been fixed. The crazy
"add 1 to the end" trick would probably fix this one too, but I'll leave it
broken to help debugging.
Comment 6 Brion Vibber 2006-12-27 02:11:05 UTC
I cleared the old bad files for this particular entry manually, and it now shows
properly for me.

Purge doesn't clear them, and it's not saving new, correct copies on the caching
thumbnail server;
presumably fetching from the main server.

Sigh.
Comment 7 Duncan Harris 2007-05-27 17:44:18 UTC
Wouldn't it just be easier to disallow new uploads which contain bad characters?
Comment 8 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-05-27 18:14:45 UTC
We don't want to prohibit punctuation in image names.  This is a bug in the caching system that should be fixed there, as I understand it.
Comment 9 JeLuF 2007-05-27 18:20:07 UTC
Are there still any current problems? Brion said in December that he fixed it and there wasn't any update since.
Comment 10 Brion Vibber 2007-05-30 19:20:36 UTC
No problems currently that I'm aware of, and various changes have been made in infrastructure. If problems continue, please provide details.
