How you stop the time stamp on top of the Wiki from updating

Question

Simple question: How do I stop the time stamp on top of my SRLE Extended LOTD Wiki pages from updating when I haven't actually updated any of my pages in weeks. My guess is it is server updates and there a bit of code i need to add to stop it but i don't know what that is. So any help would be appreciated.

According to the Media Wiki documentation this magicword only updates when the content is changed, so I doubt it has anything to do with server updates. Perhaps one or more templates where edited elsewhere on the site and this is viewed as an edit on your wiki page? Only guessing here as I can't find any switches you can add to stop that timestamp from updating.

Well I think the fact I did change the time stamp at the top of my wikis to be GMT since I am in the UK as I found the standard UTC time stamp annoying so this might be the cause of the problem i just don't how to fix and stop it updating itself every 24 hours.

Just look at the page history, and you should see the last edit coincides with the updated time stamp.

 

Templates are transcluded, so editing them only effects the template page itself and not pages calling them.

 

Updates won't trigger an edit either. It is accurate, and anyone can edit a page, so some human must have made a change, however small.

 

 

 

EDIT: no, I just checked page history, and the update time is not in sync with the update timestamp, just as you say.

 

My guess is that the code itself that you used for the timestamp must be the cause, perhaps the switches used with the magic word?

{{ #time: G:i:s j F Y|+1 hours| {{REVISIONTIMESTAMP}} }}

 

Would need to look into it to determine. Try testing that code snippet on a user page to see if the result is same as your mod guide page

OK z sorry and am a bit dense this morning (lack of sleep not good for one sanity) how would you like me to test the code Snippet?

I don't believe the error is in the code, I checked it when I read the opening post and then Googled for other examples and they all show the same format. The wiki magic word accepts those switches properly and it is some other process affecting the timestamp.
