Wikis don't show updated files
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When I upload a file in one of our wikis, embed it in a wiki page and then upload an updated version, the the file details page shows the new version, but page where I embedded it still shows the original version.
This is a problem especially for human interface guidelines, where we often have to update screenshots to reflect design changes. Of course as a workaround I can upload the new version under a new name and change the wiki page, but that's extra effort which adds up over time, and leaves us with lots of unlinked files over time.

Can you give me a link where it fails to work?

Looking for examples, I found that apparently, the problem has been fixed recently (at least I could not reproduce it anymore). Never mind, then, ticket can be closed and I'll report back if I encounter it again.
Sorry for the noise and thanks for fixing it by whichever means you did :)

Okidoki, closing then.

For future reference, you can also purge cache of mediawiki by appending "?action=purge" at the url.
