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
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.
Yes, this is, in fact, a duplicate.
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 8351 ***
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.
If somebody can reproduce this bug now, then I will reopen it. I am currently
unable to reproduce it in my own userspace
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.
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.
