Side contents are updating only after edit+save, refresh has no effect

3 (talkcontribs)

On some of our wiki sides (lets name it side-A), we have some red marked links to sides which are not existing yet. After creating the missing wikipages (let name it side-B), i expect that after refreshing side-A i will see only blue marked links to side-B. But nothing changed. Only after editing and saving side-A i will see the expected blue marked links to side-B. Which means, yes side-B exists.

This refresh problem also occours for sides found by the dynamic page list extension. In detail, the automatism of showing all sides of a specific category fails for new generated sides. Only after editing and saving a side (named side-C) which shows dpl content will detect new sides added to the specific category.

MediaWiki 1.25.2

PHP 5.5.9-1ubuntu4.17 (fpm-fcgi)

MySQL 5.5.50-0ubuntu0.14.04.1

Because of the fact, that our wiki is used in an research facility. We have restricted access and so it is not posibble to provide the url of our wiki. Sorry for that.

This sounds like you do not have a job runner active, which goes through the Job queue. Changes updating 'other pages' to reflect that a page has been created are deferred, and if you don't have a job runner active, then it will take quite a while before other pages start reflecting the change.
