Thanks for this great extension. Its going to become difficult to trust as the pages do not automatically update the pages the data is being pulled into when the table changes. I need to go to the target page, edit and click save. Is there something wrong with my configuration?

Automatic page updates
Pleased to know that my extension is useful. Whether your configuration is wrong depends on your needs: MediaWiki has various caching mechanisms, see Manual:Cache for an overview. Clearly you can reduce caching at the cost of performance loss. In any case, caching prevents automatic update of any underlying data; there is no way to see DataTable2 updates in real time but to allow other changes of underlying items (such as templates) to be deferred.
A simpler way to force update of a rendered page is explained in Manual:FAQ#How do I purge a cached page?.
