incomplete refresh of article links

Uwe Baumbach
Please help:

is the following
- a known bug,
- a "feature" or
- a configurable behavior ??

Article [[First]] contains an dynamically include via {{Second}}.
In article [[Second]] is a link to [[Third]].
[[Third]] will be shown in "What links here?"  of [[First]]
So far so good.

If you then change in [[Second]] the link [[Third]] to [[Other]] - [[Third]] link still remains in "What links here?" of [[First]] (purging cache or not)
Only after a minor change in [[First]] the link table will be refreshed.

The only but unwanted way I see is a frequently use of maintenance/refreshLinks.php ??

Which version of Mediawiki are you using? That problem should be fixed in
1.6.x, in 1.5.x there were frequent problems where changing a template
might not change all the articles where it was included, thus creating
the problem above.

best wishes,

1.5.8

We only moved to 1.5.8 and do not want to go to 1.6.x

Is there a chance for  1.5.9 or so?

Why not? In any case, the templatelinks and job tables added to
facilitate this change aren't likely to be backported to 1.5.x or it
would have been done already.

There will be only security fixes coming in 1.5.9, so it is unlikely that
this will work correctly in 1.5.x. You need to upgrae to 1.6.3 (and you
get new features, too :)

Best wishes,

Does anyone know why I might be getting extremely slow first browser
loads..?

This usually only happens the first time I open the site in browser, and
then runs just fine after that..

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated..!

Thanks,

Thomas
