Description Adrian Lang 2008-02-08 14:47:12 UTC
A page like 
----
#REDIRECT [[bar]]

'''This''' is a [[foo]].
----
is shown as a redirect on foo's What links here.
Comment 2 Huji 2008-02-09 10:41:19 UTC
I assume we want it not to get listed on Whatlinkshere/Foo at all, right?

or as a normal link, I'm not sure about that.

The backlink should not be listed at all - if A is a redirect to B, and A happens to also link to C, and D links to A, that does not mean that D links to C in any way. It might make slight sense to think of D linking to B (skipping the redirect), but not to C. 

This issue is visible on enwiki in 
  http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Whatlinkshere/Template:Nobots&limit=500&from=0
(look for User talk:Politics rule). 

It also shows up because of pages like
    http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Hedyscepe&redirect=no
which link to [[en:Taxon]] via a redirect sorting template. The backlinks for Taxon show numerous examples of the problem.
