North Lake or North lake?

Post by klossner » July 13th, 2016, 4:01 pm

There are two different hike descriptions that seem to be identical except for whether "Lake" is capitalized in the title. Even the revision histories are identical:

the one with "L" is referenced from the list of hikes

I bet the one with "l" could be deleted

Something might break in the process

How did you find the one with "l"?

I searched for North Lake and both pages came up.

They are the same page. If you or someone else using your computer inadvertently typed lower case on a search then you'll forever end up seeing one or the other or both. It's happened to me countless times and affects only the title of a page. Seems to be a minor dysfunction of this web site.

Deleting one will delete "both". It's a dysfunction of the search application (resulting from the user not typing capitals) not the creation of two identical pages.

deleting one will delete both? Funny

how many times have you learned that? :)

I don't think I've ever deleted anything myself :lol:
