Description Carl Fürstenberg 2007-08-18 01:24:52 UTC
Either add an option blexcluderedirect, or add a isredirect="true" to <bl />

probably similar should be done to other lists.

This is important for some applications, where redirects should be ignored.

Assigning to self, as a reminder to fix this tomorrow.
Comment 2 Roan Kattouw 2007-09-04 14:47:35 UTC
Fixed in r25476. I added the blfilterredir param, which you can set to redirects (only redirects), nonredirects (only non-redirects) or all (default). If you want to know which of your backlinks are redirects, use a generator:


This will feed Main Page's backlinks to prop=info, who will happily tell you whether or not it's a redirect.
