Does this mean that once new content has been added and the page saved, the

Sort of.  Strictly, save just does a save.

The metadata renderer is called the next time the page is viewed or the next 
time some other page needs to access the metadata of that page (e.g. for the 
heading to use in a link).

The xhtml renderer is called the next time the page is viewed.

But yes, in normal use, the page is viewed immediately after it has been saved.


User clicks save
Browser issues POST request with updated wiki text
Dokuwiki updates pagename.txt file&  responds to browser with a 302 forward
Browser issues GET request to view page [*]
Dokuwiki renders both metadata&  xhtml and responds with the rendered page.
