Create page instead of redirecting to composer page

Post by Coe »

Hi,
I have just uploaded two scores onto CPDL for the first time.
When I uploaded the first score, my composer page was created.
However, there is something happening which I don't know if it is normal.

On the page of my second uploaded score (Jesu Dulcis Memoria), it is fine: you can click on my name and it will redirect you to my composer page.

But on the page of my first uploaded score (Missa Sancti Joseph), my name doesn't redirect to my composer page; rather, there is an option "create page". Yet the page already exists.

Is there something I should do?

Thank you for becoming a new CPDL contributor!

You were probably not logged-in when you inspected the page of your first uploaded score. To save server resources, cached pages are displayed to users who are not logged-in, and cached pages may not reflect the latest updates.

The caching mechanism of the MediaWiki software is quite tricky: to see the latest version of a page you may have to login, and sometimes you may also have to perform a "null edit" (i.e., open a page for editing and then save it without changing anything - this helps to refresh some cached contents).

Anyway, cached pages expire after some hours, so they also reflect the latest changes after a relatively short time.

Hi, Henrique,
You created the first work page under 'Henrique Coe' as editor, then the second one with 'Henrique Gomes Coe' as editor. So the system wanted the second editor page to be created. I reduced the second editor name to the first one.
