Work only shows up on composer page if I am logged in

Postby szali » Wed Apr 15, 2015 10:13 pm

Hello! On the page Balázs Szalkai , the work 7 Pieces For Orchestra does not show up if I view the composer page logged out, and I see only one work of the composer ("Compositions (1)"). However, if I log in, I can see 7 Pieces as well, along with The Adventures of Karpel ("Compositions (2)"). Is this a bug?

No, it's not a bug. It's a typical behavio(u)r of the MediaWiki software: to save server resources, a cached copy of the page is shown to anonymous users, while the latest version of the page is shown to logged-in users. The cache is refreshed every few hours/days. You can anyway force the refreshing of the cache for a specific page by adding "?action=purge" to the URL of the page you want to refresh. For example:

http://imslp.org/wiki/Category:Szalkai,_Bal%C3%A1zs?action=purge

would refresh the cache of the composer page you mentioned.
