For real?[edit]

How exactly do you install this?? As explained (in a very lean way, I must say) it doesn't work. I just get a bunch of gibberish and SVN stuff. And even if it worked, when you go to Special Pages what are you looking for? Once in that page what do you click to clear the cache? Can you comment out the extension after you use it? How does it create a special page? This page needs info...how are we supposed to implement this?? Any known bugs? Conflicts? So many question are no addressed for this important tool. --Mark 10:39, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

It does work as explained. If it doesn't work for you, you must be doing something wrong.
If you don't have a SVN client or you don't know how to download the files through ViewVC, you can use Special:ExtensionDistributor to download the files.
System messages section explains all system messages added by RefreshSpecial and where they are used. The first message, 'refreshspecial' (which has the value "Refresh special pages") is the title of the special page. So in Special:SpecialPages, you'd be looking for "Refresh special pages".
Once in that page what do you click to clear the cache?
The "Refresh selected" button.
Can you comment out the extension after you use it?
Obviously.
How does it create a special page?
Just like every other special page extension. $wgAutoloadClasses and $wgSpecialPages and all that.
how are we supposed to implement this?
Implement...what?
Any known bugs? Conflicts?
If there were, surely someone would have reported them on Bugzilla. The search returns zero matches for RefreshSpecial bugs, so I'd assume that there are no bugs as of now or if there are, nobody's reported them yet.

Doesn't work in 1.20[edit]

This extension doesn't seem to be compatible with 1.20. Special:RefreshSpecial gives me a 500 error. --Inops (talk) 11:02, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

Fatal error: Call to undefined method LoadBalancer::safeGetLag()[edit]

I was testing this in MW 1.16.5 and I get:

Fatal error: Call to undefined method LoadBalancer::safeGetLag() in C:\wamp\www\wiki\extensions\RefreshSpecial\RefreshSpecial.body.php on line 245 Call Stack
