Description Alex Matulich 2007-01-04 06:45:52 UTC
When viewing the most recent diff of a vandalized article on Wikipedia, clicking the "undo" 
link returns the same vandalized version in the edit box, rather than the previous version.

The conversation at indicates 
that this isn't an isolated problem.

Hypothesis: possibly interaction with user setting "show preview before edit box" but not

I believe this was fixed by Brion, but has yet to be taken live.
Comment 2 Andrew Garrett 2007-01-04 07:12:05 UTC
Yes, this is, in fact, a duplicate.

Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2007-01-04 07:52:31 UTC
If it is a duplicate, then the problem hasn't existed for over a week
and no one can have experienced it during the last week.
Comment 4 Andrew Garrett 2007-01-04 10:59:05 UTC
If somebody can reproduce this bug now, then I will reopen it. I am currently
unable to reproduce it in my own userspace
Comment 5 Rob Church 2007-01-04 13:00:51 UTC
I can't reproduce with a simple case under current trunk:

1. Created "Victim" page with some text
2. "Vandalised" the page from another machine
3. Accessed the diff, clicked Undo

The undo works fine. I also can't reproduce this when enabling "show preview on
first edit" as the initial comment advised.
Comment 6 Alex Matulich 2007-01-04 23:35:12 UTC
Huh. I wonder why, in spite of the searching I did here, why I didn't find those duplicates before reporing this issue.

I can't repeat it anymore either. Sorry for the trouble.
