Description Danny B. 2007-06-07 12:35:16 UTC
There's a practical feature showing links to up-pages when on subpage:

eg. on page Wikipedia:Polls/2007/January you would see
< Wikipedia:Polls | 2007

if Wikipedia:Polls/2007 doesn't exist, you would see only
< Wikipedia:Polls


So this feature should behave same way:

eg. on page "Lorem ipsum (foo)" you would see link to "Lorem ipsum" (in case it exists)

----

bug 7264 may be considered as related since it will use same principle of cutting out the disambiguation part

Please do not close bugs with WONTFIX without saying a word of reason. Thanks
Comment 2 Rob Church 2007-06-07 14:08:03 UTC
It's pointless.
Comment 3 Rob Church 2007-06-07 14:19:53 UTC
Oh, fuck it, I can't be bothered to fight.
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2007-06-07 17:00:29 UTC
This is currently left up to templates or other customizations. The software doesn't really have a clean concept of "disambiguation" itself.

Well, maybe it would be more convenient for that behaviour to be changed. Then, editors wouldn't have to keep adding those article headers, "For the other bla, see [[Bla (disambiguation)]]".

I'm very skeptical of how worthwhile it is to have this in the software.  It's not very general-appeal, given that enwiki's disambiguation style need hardly be universal.  It's already accommodated for by the pipe trick, but I'm leery of any more of that.  Besides, hatnotes are much more informative and useful, and it would be quite ridiculous to have [[1999 (disambiguation)]] with such a link.

I agree with WONTFIX.
