As a consequence JQREQUIRE doesn't work either, as well as any %MACRO whose implementation creates the jquery module on perl level.

%BUTTON{"Shake it, baby" icon="bomb" onclick="jQuery('#shakeit').shake(3, 10, 180)" id="shakeit"}%

This won't shake the button.

Work around this by moving all ADDTOZONE, or JQREQUIRE out of the dirty area:
%BUTTON{"Shake it, baby" icon="bomb" onclick="jQuery('#shakeit').shake(3, 10, 180)" id="shakeit"}%


All of the page except the dirty area has already been rendered. This includes the <head>...</head> zone of the page. At the time the dirty area is computed again, this distant part of the page is already static HTML. So a call to ADDTOZONE won't be able to alter this area anymore.

Idea how to fix:

Whenever there is a call to ADDTOZONE from inside a dirty area rendering the zones must be delayed til the request time as well. It can't be cached anymore as material added to the zone might change the ordering of the content inside the zone significantly.

Would it help if we eliminated the automatic s/<\/head>// regex, and force skin authors to have explicit RENDERZONEs wrapped in dirty areas?

I actually think forcing explicit %RENDERZONE is a good idea for other reasons. This solution removes magic, and avoids new magic to resolve the cache issue.

-- PaulHarvey - 01 Oct 2010

This is not that simple. There are two sets of calls to ADDTOZONE: one at first hit, the other for all dirty areas. Both have to be combined into the zone rendered at request time.

Whatever we find to solve this, it should not add a default dirty area as this will degrade performance even in those cases where zones could be perfectly finished and cached. We only need a solution if a page is flagged dirty in cache.
