Page status color code not always showing

  • Problem: Color code indicating the page status on the index page do not always show on French Wikisource. We have to purge the book page many times.
Problem started in mid-late 2016; before it was very rare that we had to purge to see the colors.
  • Who would benefit: This is counter intuitive for beginners. Documentation mentions the page color code but they do not show, and this is very confusing to new contributors. Reduce loss of time when editing a book, especially for advanced contributors.
  • Proposed solution: We should not have to purge the index page each time we display a book
  • More comments:


  • I strongly endorse this. That's an annoying bug that I was thinking as unique to it.wikisource: if such behaviour is common to more projects it deserves an appropriate solution, and it needs it quickly: an index page is meant to show the state of any pages to let users decide transcribe, proofread or validate them. - εΔω 16:51, 23 November 2017 (UTC)
