If your wiki has modified the "Citethispage-content" message, it may
need some small modifications  to continue working properly.

Background: The CiteThisPage special page shows different citations for
wiki articles. It mentions two different times: the first being the time
the specific revision of the article was edited, and the second being
the current time.

Special:CiteThisPage modified the parser so that any of the {{CURRENT*}}
time magic words would use the revision timestamp, and anything wrapped
inside of a special <citation>...</citation> tag would use the current
timestamp. However there was a bug in this implementation where the
{{#time:...}} parserfunction would always use the current timestamp,
even if it was outside the <citation> tags.

That bug has now been fixed[1], and will be deployed to all wikis
starting on October 4th. To retain existing behavior, simply wrap any
{{#time:..}} in <citation> tags. I know this might be a little
confusing, so please let me know if this isn't clear.
