Description Brian Collins 2005-02-17 12:41:50 UTC
Using 1.4beta6. When removing the [[Category:Whatever]] link from a page it still shows up in 
the "Whatever" category listing. I guess this is because the old page remains in the history/diff. 
The only way i could get rid of the page from the "Whatever" category listing is to delete the page 
(after copying the source minus the [[Category:Whatever]] link), logout as SysOP (as undeletes are 
not possible then i guess), login again, then create the page again from the saved source.

Is there a simpler way for SysOPs to *permanently* delete a *page revision*? If it's in the making 
for the next version that's cool too.

Modifying the category page is another way to force deleted article listings to
be droppped.
Adding &action=purge to the URL might also work, but I haven't tried that yet.

For information on deleting revisions, see:
