Category links slow to update[edit]

I'm having an issue with a private Wiki that I have setup where category links are slow to update. If a category is added to an article, the category shows as being registered on the article immediately, however when opening the category, the new article does not appear. The delay in updating of the category link is different each time, sometimes a small delay (maybe 30 seconds or less), sometimes longer (approx. 5 minutes). This is in turn affecting the updating of categories displayed via the Category Tree extension which we are using for ease of navigation.

I have tried searching for similar issues reported by other users, but have not come across anything as yet.

The Wiki host is running in the following configuration:

MediaWiki Ver: 1.27

Host OS: Windows Server 2012 R2

Web Server: IIS 8.5

PHP: 5.6.24 (cgi-fcgi)

DB: MySQL 5.7.9

Inserimento link[edit]

Salve. Vorrei inserire un link che indirizza a sito esterno in un testo. Ho già provato più volte ma viene considerato come indirizzo pubblicitario. Come risolvere?

il link è questo: ho provato a creare una pagina anche ma non mi accetta i link. testi e link sono originali e non sono usati a scopo pubblicitario.

Is it possible to download a raw dataset of all world government organizations (city, state, province, etc.)?

If there is not a data value indicating it's a government organization, are all URLS in a table so that I can programmatically deduce which URLs are government, therefore indirectly indicating all government organizations?

Math equations missing in all pages[edit]

In Firefox 3 and some older versions of IE the <math> is not rendered, the <meta> with "background: url()" using svg graphic is not rendered either. The pages without equations are crippled to uselessness. In mid-april 2016 it worked well with using PNG images, and also pages like refer to using PNG images... There is no mention of changing math technology in your "Tech news" either (at least since March this year, the change occured sometimes after mid-april...)

Using this old versions of web-browsers may be an important security-issue, since newer versions of Firefox with Firefox.js compiled into Omni.ja prevents security editing of snooping configuration items, the Chrome and some IE are unsecure due to inability to switch off javascript, very poor configuration options and more problems...

Web pages packed to MHT (MIME html) file format may be displayed inline in some e-mail clients, which also probably will not support <math> tags...

Set Up a Looking Glass Page[edit]

Hi. During these days, accessing Wikipedia using China Unicom, which is an ISP in mainland China, has been becoming extremely slow. Chinese Wikipedia editors have ways to get through it, but that inspired me that WMF could set up a webpage for Looking Glass. That would be useful for users or technicians to find out which datacenter has better connection, and the ways to solve connecting issues. Especially for editors with poor internet conditions or living in somewhere with strict internet censorship. --TechyanTalk) 16:46, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

Did a new release just go out?[edit]

I've had all kinds of problems with "extras" this morning–for starters, my global.js is not loading consistently, and the abbreviated languages list does not seem to be working. What's up? StevenJ81 (talk) 17:47, 9 September 2016 (UTC)

Such things happen from time to time. Ruslik (talk) 18:49, 9 September 2016 (UTC)
wikitech:Server Admin Log may be helpful. --MZMcBride (talk) 22:46, 9 September 2016 (UTC)



  1. Are gadgets can be converted into default options in the Preferences (If it can benefit all projects)?
  2. Is it possible to make deleting "Talk page of a nonexistent or deleted page" happens automatically with the deletion of the original page?
    1. What about Commons files (Instead of the slow bot:Deleting locally without the emergence of these changes in "Special:RecentChanges")? --ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2 (talk) 09:49, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
