Description Anon Sricharoenchai 2008-02-13 05:20:01 UTC
How to reproduce,
# Purge some user interface page,
# The UI of that message will crash, appearing as "<div class='noarticletext'>Main Page</div>", for example.
# The page will show "Bad title".
# The link on logo at top-left is ""
# Not limited to "mediawiki:mainpage", according to my experiment, purging other UI, such as "mediawiki:portal" also cause the same thing.
# Sometimes, the crash of this UI is not occur suddenly after the purging of UI page.  Try purge the page you are viewing, for this crash to take effect.

I first discover this when purging mediawiki:portal at wikiquote.
Sorry for that, I have also tested purging mediawiki:mainpage on wikiquote.
The first page of en.wikiquote is now gone.  I'm very very sorry for that.
I should test this only on  I'm so sorry :(
