Description Steven Sacks 2008-04-10 17:47:17 UTC

On the SomePage page, clicking the above link jumps to the SomeSubSection anchor on the same page as expected. 

However, if you give that link a custom name separated with a pipe

[[SomePage#SomeSubSection|Some Sub Section]]

It reloads the entire page and then jumps to that subsection, instead of the expected behavior of simply jumping to the anchor tag on the same page.

I am using the latest stable release of MediaWiki.

Not API.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2008-04-11 23:59:12 UTC
I certainly don't see this effect.

Confirm that the second link isn't using a redirected name or similar.
