Description Andreas Vilén 2006-04-30 15:02:50 UTC
The article sometimes shows the history of a vandalised article

(nuvarande) (föregående)  19 april 2006 kl.11.57 Micke2 m (klotter)
(nuvarande) (föregående)  19 april 2006 kl.11.56

and sometimes the real history, which is much longer and updated more recently.

Also, sometimes it shows the real article, with the source

'''Nangmineq erinllik''' är [[Grönland]]s [[nationalsång]], antagen 1916. Texten skrevs av [[Henrik Lund]].



[[cs:Grónská hymna]]
[[de:Nunarput utoqqarsuanngoravit]]
[[en:Nunarput utoqqarsuanngoravit]]
[[es:Nunarput utoqqarsuanngoravit]]
[[fa:سرود ملی گرینلند]]
[[fr:Nunarput utoqqarsuanngoravit]]
[[nl:Nunarput utoqqarsuanngoravit]]
[[pl:Hymn Grenlandii]]
[[pt:Hino nacional da Gronelândia]]
[[fi:Nunarput utoqqarsuanngoravit]]

Above is how the article should look, but for some reason that's not always the case... I have also asked at 
#wikimedia-tech, but they had no solution to the problem. Maybe it has to do with history stored on separate 
servers? Also, when the article is deleted, sometimes it still shows the vandalised version, which also can't be 

Any ideas?

Clear browser cache.
Comment 2 Andreas Vilén 2006-05-01 10:46:49 UTC
No, that's not the problem! We've been several people who have had the same problems! I was also at #wikimedia-
tech, and no one there had a solution, they saw the same thing! At least click the links and try to update the page 
and its history a couple of times. This is NOT a browser issue!
Comment 3 Andreas Vilén 2006-05-01 10:54:51 UTC
OK, now it seems to work correctly. But I promise that it wasn't a problem with the cache, as I said, numerous 
people had the same problem, I saw the vandalised versions the day I reported this bug but can't see them now, and 
I have cleared my cache numerous times. Well, since it works I assume it's not a problem anymore, but as I said, it 
has nothing to do with my computer.
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2006-05-01 18:16:49 UTC
It really is the browser cache. Sometimes it doesn't properly update when 
you undelete, until the page gets edited again.
