What happens[edit]

I deleted en:Image:Poring.jpg from en: after it was also uploaded to Shared, but the image from Shared isn't showing up...? Jpatokal 00:57, 1 May 2006 (EDT)

I see it, though! Could it be a caching problem? --Evan 08:40, 2 May 2006 (EDT)
All right, I'm seeing some weird behavior, too. My guess is that parts of the MediaWiki software are seeing the image as "deleted", so they're showing it as non-existent. Other parts are only checking the Shared: repository. I don't have a quick answer to this, but it's interesting. As a work-around, if you upload an image to Shared:, give it a different name. I know that's unsatisfactory, but there's a lot of bletcherousness going on here. --Evan 08:46, 2 May 2006 (EDT)

How to fix it[edit]

The problem seems only to be a caching issue. If you purge the cache on the deleted file that will normally take care of problem. I've also noticed that pages occasionally require having its cache purged too. -- Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 16:16, 20 September 2006 (EDT)

Ugh. I think half of the valid bug reports here are all tied to the same awful, chronic caching problems. --Peter Talk 02:51, 21 March 2008 (EDT)
