Description MER-C 2008-01-27 04:34:09 UTC
Special:Linksearch should default to all protocols instead of just http. This quirk is not documented anywhere, especially in the default [[MediaWiki:Linksearch-text]]. As it stands, this allows linkspammers to evade scrutiny by placing https links.

Example query: [[Special:Linksearch/*]] should pick up the link to I placed in my personal sandbox, but I have to search [[Special:Linksearch/https://*]] to pick up this link.

Currently you'd have to do separate queries for every possible protocol, and paging the list wouldn't be cleanly possible.

To work cleanly, another index field would have to be added to the externallinks table which doesn't include the protocol.

Extensions is now part of MediaWiki core (1.14alpha) -> changing product and component
