Description Russell Blau 2008-03-18 18:43:47 UTC
Here's an example of a list=backlinks query to a page that has some links to a redirect:

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=query&list=backlinks&bltitle=Chief_Buffalo&bllimit=20&blredirect

This returns 12 direct links and 7 redirect links.  However,

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=query&generator=backlinks&gbltitle=Chief_Buffalo&gbllimit=20&gblredirect

does not generate the same results, returning only the 12 direct links.

If the difference between the two query results is intentional, it should be mentioned in the documentation.

I *remember* testing this, and it worked. I guess I changed something afterwards and broke it. Fixed in r32125.
