How do you get to/do step 3?

Um, it seems pretty clear to me. Well, now that I rewrote it in english. And you sign and stamp your comments on talk pages using the little sig button second from the right when editing, or by typing out --~~~~. Bone_F_clear.png Sir Famine, Gun Petition » 00:49, 6 Sep 2005 (UTC)

And now that I see your edits to the page, I'm guessing you figured it out. Any other clarity issues, post here about them. Bone_F_clear.png Sir Famine, Gun Petition » 00:51, 6 Sep 2005 (UTC)

  • When updating an old Oscar Wilde quote, (for instance "Dave Chapelle" or "Warsaw") it never updates on the Oscar Wilde letter/quote page. I was trying to fix the Warsaw one but it never updated itself in the letter list. Why does it do this and how can you fix it? --MonkeyGem 10:20, 25 Sep 2005 (UTC)

This is a buggish thing with the base wiki code. Basically, if a page has a template on it, (the stuff in the {{ }} tags) it only revisits that template if you make a change to the page and re-save it. So if you change a template, pages with that template keep the old text until someone makes an edit to every page containing that template.
To fix this, you can edit something on the page and save it, (and I've only had minor luck with adding a blank line) or add a comment to the page.
<!-- this is the code for a comment. -->
Comments don't show up, and thus don't change the look of the page, but count as a change and the page will refresh all templates on it. I usually use the comment to note why I'm making it. --Bone_F_clear.png Sir Famine, Gun Petition » 14:53, 25 Sep 2005 (UTC)
