Purge

Purpose

For efficiency in service, MediaWiki caches pages. Depending on the exact sequence of actions editors follow, one may view an out-of-date version of a given page. This happens most often on heavily-edited pages and on pages which contain an instance of transclusion.

{{Purge}} adds a link (to any page) that, when clicked, not only reloads the page, but clears the page's server-side cache, forcing the page to be completely rendered "from scratch". This is not a one-time solution; generally, editing a page is itself sufficient to purge cache. Rather, it is a measure taken in anticipation of the frequent need to purge.

Examples

Code:

  • {{purge}}

Yields:
