I added a Gadget ( to the gadget definition page (see URL), under the header == admin == (

Yet after an hour or so, the gadget refuses to appear under Special:Gadgets and Special:Preferences. All description files are present.

It is strange.
Comment 2 Erwin Dokter 2012-01-25 18:15:07 UTC
Gadget appeared the next day. Caching issue?
Comment 3 Max Semenik 2012-01-26 22:06:47 UTC
Probably, related to bug 12128.
Comment 4 Rob Lanphier 2012-01-30 19:12:17 UTC
Sam, can you look into this one, and see if this is just a configuration issue on the beta site?
Comment 5 Sam Reed (reedy) 2012-01-31 17:06:45 UTC
Quick test on my dev wiki, exporting gadgets from and importing them locally seems to work fine for me
Comment 6 Sam Reed (reedy) 2012-01-31 19:19:13 UTC
Per bug 12128#c3 null editing fixed it
