What happens[edit]

I have just dropped by the Main page of Dutch Wikitravel (nl:Hoofdpagina) and it's apparently showing the page's printable version instead of the "normal" version. Ricardo (Rmx) 22:25, 30 July 2006 (EDT)

Thanks for the heads up... I just took a look and all the other language versions seem fine, as well as all the other pages in nl... weirdness. Maj 00:11, 31 July 2006 (EDT)
How's it look now? It didn't look like it should have two minutes ago, but it looks perfectly fine in my browser now. -- Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 00:38, 31 July 2006 (EDT)
Err, it looks fine now... not that that makes it any less weird, but I guess I can go to sleep now. Maj 00:40, 31 July 2006 (EDT)
Did you do anything? The only I thing that I did was log in, went to the recent changes page attempted a revert, then the main page was showing properly so I took the opportunity to purge the cache. If that makes any sense - it doesn't to me. -- Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 00:45, 31 July 2006 (EDT)
Just thought I'd let you know that I had the exact same problem in the en version a second ago. I deleted the temporary internet files and it refreshed the page and it's fine now... Don't know if theres something up with that, but I thought Id let you all know about it. -- Tim 04:51, 8 August 2006 (EDT)

When it happens[edit]

What should happen[edit]

How to fix it[edit]

This happened when people used the "preview" link for skins in the user preferences page, and the skin didn't work (some don't). I've disabled all other skins except "Wikitravel" on all language versions, so this shouldn't happen again (for now). Unfortunately, there's not an easy was to do this, so I hacked it up in the core MediaWiki code. Sometimes that patch gets broken during upgrades. --Evan 11:17, 26 February 2007 (EST)
