Why doesn't the 155-0022-00 show up in the list of Custom ICs, but the 155-0015-01 shows up twice (custom ICs and 7k Readout ICs)? Gregor (talk) 22:43, 13 Nov 2021 (MST)

On the 155-0015-01 page, the "used_in" list contained the 7000 series readout system page, plus all the scopes separately. It makes more sense list only the readout, so I've changed this for the 0015 to match all the other readout IC pages. On the scope pages, there are separate {{Custom ICs|7503}} and {{Custom ICs|7000 series readout system}} queries.
When you change the used_in list on a component such as the 155-0022-00, the cargo database tables get updated right away, but pages like the 7503 that contain queries are not updated immediately, because MediaWiki caches the page's HTML when the page is edited. Instead of making an empty edit to refresh the cache, you can append ?action=purge to the page URL, e.g. Cheers,

Thanks Peter, I clearly dont know enough about mediawiki to understand the inner workings of the Cargo tables, but I appreciate the new feature quite a bit, it makes it easier to stay consistent. Looking at the list of 7000 readout related ICs I am now wondering, should we remove the individual 7k mainframe related entries for the 155-0014-01 as well? Greetings, Gregor

I was about to do that yesterday but then the site was down for some database issue. It's done now. --Peter (talk) 00:09, 15 November 2021 (PST)
