What happens[edit]

The TOC on the recent changes page on en

When it happens[edit]

Either incorrect or inappropriate TOCs occasionally show up randomly when viewing pages. I suspected a cache issue, but I don't think the recent changes page (see image) is cached, so it's likely there is other mischief afoot.

I'm getting this too. So far supposed on the Recent Changes page and also when editing articles. I never saw it before today, but now it's happening all the time (but not always). Jpatokal 13:34, 11 June 2007 (EDT)
Me too – cacahuate talk 01:29, 12 June 2007 (EDT)

I hadn't seen this problem in a while, then all of a sudden starting at about 11:15 PM (PST) tonight I'm seeing it on probably 50% of the non-article pages I'm visiting. -- Ryan 02:32, 21 June 2007 (EDT)

This has been happening within the last 24 hours on ru:Служебная:Recentchanges. Random template ToCs just appear on the page, and only go away after a refresh or a few. This may be happening on pages other than the recentchanges as well (I don't really remember). --Peter, who has been automatically logged out once again as of 06:28, 2 August 2007 (EDT)
This problem has become almost standard on the Russian language version. I see random TOCs pop up something like 20% of page views now, granted I'm looking mostly at pages that shouldn't have TOCs, like templates, special pages, and mediawiki messages. --Peter Talk 21:58, 29 August 2007 (EDT)

I'm seeing this a lot in the last couple of days... even on the main page! – cacahuate talk 18:34, 2 November 2007 (EDT)
Me too, TOC of travel guide appeared in a new User talk page on ja:. -- Tatata 06:30, 3 November 2007 (EDT)
en:Bali is now just showing the "contents" caption and an empty one-line rectangle. I've cleared the cache (twice) but it's not made any difference. ~ 203.144.143.4 13:23, 17 January 2008 (EST)
I fixed the Bali problem, which was oddly enough due to an improperly formatted listings tag. The problem of the random TOCs appearing where they don't belong remains, however, and remains quite irritating and unprofessional. --Peter Talk 16:02, 17 January 2008 (EST)

I don't think I've seen this happen for a while on :en, but it happens often on :ru, and makes our site look crummy. --Peter Talk 01:38, 21 March 2008 (EDT)

Occasionally, this happens on sv: too. Riggwelter 12:57, 30 March 2008 (EDT)
Saw it today on :en – cacahuate talk 03:21, 31 March 2008 (EDT)
The problem still occurs on sv: at times. Riggwelter 06:54, 15 July 2008 (EDT)
Is anyone still seeing this happening? The only time I notice it is after doing a rollback, but only admins see that, which is a non-issue... can we close this? – cacahuate talk 02:53, 14 October 2008 (EDT)
This problem is hibernatory. It will go away for a long while only to rear its ugly head all over a language version or two for several days. I'd like to at least know why this was happening, in order to have confidence that it won't recur. --Peter 03:39, 14 October 2008 (EDT)
It happened on ja: after I tweaked a MediWiki template repeatedly on last Sunday. At that time, there were hundred or more jobs in job queue. It seemed that I overloaded the server with my tweaking. Sorry ;-) -- Tatata 04:58, 14 October 2008 (EDT)

Is this still happening? Haven't seen it for months now on any of the versions I frequent. Jpatokal 22:06, 4 January 2009 (EST)

Has happened to me a couple of times in the last few days, after not happening for a long time. Gorilla Jones 23:26, 4 January 2009 (EST)
I'm seeing it repeatedly on the recent changes page today. -- Ryan 23:35, 4 January 2009 (EST)
Funny you should ask—I haven't seen it for a long time, but saw it all over the place on :en yesterday. --Peter Talk 06:47, 5 January 2009 (EST)

Another half a year has passed, and I haven't seen this for a long time. Anybody else? Jpatokal 01:23, 3 July 2009 (EDT)

A bunch of times today and yesterday, following a long lull ;) --Peter 01:51, 3 July 2009 (EDT)
Still on main pages like "recent changes", etc? I only ever notice it occasionally on the "marked as patrolled" page.... which, while it shouldn't be there, is not really much of an issue – cacahuate talk 16:19, 3 July 2009 (EDT)
I haven't seen it on recentchanges or in the main namespace, but I have been getting it on history pages. --Peter 18:17, 3 July 2009 (EDT)

What should happen[edit]

It should not be there!
