Description Graf.Zahl 2007-07-04 14:04:58 UTC
I access the English Wikisource through Currently, there is the wikilink [[Wikisource:Reform month]] in the site notice. When the site notice is displayed at the top of the page, the resulting link is broken (leads to and the server displays an error page. The link works fine from the non-secure server at
Comment 1 Graf.Zahl 2007-07-04 15:19:41 UTC
Update: for some reason the link does not seem to break on the main page.

More and more people using the secure server these days.  We adopted a workaround on otrswiki.wikimedia [{{fullurl:PAGENAME}} PAGENAME] , but it's still something that can and should be fixed :)  Or else you'll get more and more duplicates of this bug  !  :)
Comment 5 Brion Vibber 2008-09-16 21:17:57 UTC
Should be fixed by r40937... This appends $wgRenderHashAppend to the sitenotice cache keys (as is done for the parser cache keys) to allow the SSL cache to be maintained separately.

In quick testing it looks ok; commons on SSL shows SSL links in its sitenotice; commons in non-SSL shows non-SSL. Yay!

I am though getting 'false' returned from memcached for the SSL key ("commonswiki:sitenotice:https=1") rather than the array I'm expecting, which is a bit weird.

This may be due to a down or funky memcached. :P
