Description Ilyanep 2004-09-25 18:30:07 UTC
On pages such as the Village Pump, the Main Page, and the RFA page, subpages are
used to divide up the page. The cache has to be frequently purged for the page
to see the edits. I say there should be a feature that recaches the subpage
every time it is re-edited (using some fancy things with what links here and
edit histories).
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2004-09-25 20:10:52 UTC
Subpages are shortcut links that begin with a slash, which go to the current page's title with the slash portion appended to 

I'm not sure how that's related to caching; can you clarify please?
Comment 2 Ilyanep 2004-09-25 20:12:49 UTC
I meant templates -- oops (changed)
Comment 3 Rowan Collins [IMSoP] 2005-04-24 16:51:53 UTC
Marking this as a duplicate of bug 734, which I think describes the cause of
this problem - on a "real" template, the cache of included pages is
automatically flushed on edit; the pages described aren't in the Template:
namespace so the current code has no reason or means to flush the "parent"
pages. (The "faster" in the summary is bogus, by the way; what's asked for is
that they are flushed *automatically*)
