Page preview text[edit]

Does anyone know how to edit page preview text? Just noticed that the preview text when hovering over links directing to this page says:

Roger Joseph Ebert was a self- important, snobbish American film critic, historian, journalist, screenwriter, and author. He was a film critic for the Chicago Sun-Times from 1967 until his death in 2013. In 1975, Ebert became the first film critic to win the Pulitzer Prize for Criticism.

I've no idea how to edit page preview text so just letting anyone else know.

It is automatically pulled from the lede paragraph - i.e. the first few sentences of the article. That is a piece of vandalism that occurred yesterday and was quickly reverted, the fact that you still see it in the preview is no doubt a caching issue that will resolve itself in time. --Krelnik (talk) 11:48, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
Ahh ok thanks, didn't think of trying to clear the cache. --58.173.129.80 (talk) 04:13, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

pronuncation of Ebert?[edit]

Shouldn't Ebert's last name be pronounced "/i:'bɜ:ɹt/"? Or, at the very least, could this be an alternative pronunciation? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.169.248.254 (talk) 21:01, 24 July 2019 (UTC)
