Description Melancholie 2008-05-07 15:21:27 UTC
1. If you have a flagged page P ([[:de:David Lynch]]) and you change a link in it from A to B, beside Special:WhatLinksHere/B also Special:WhatLinksHere/A will still show page P in it. Special:WhatLinksHere/A seems to show a not moved ~flag!? If completely unflagging the page P, Special:WhatLinksHere/A is updated correctly!
Ref.: [[:de:Hilfe_Diskussion:Gesichtete_und_geprüfte_Versionen#.C3.84nderung_Wikilinks_bei_gesichteten_Artikeln]]

2. You have a page [[:de:Serge Lifar]] (in this case a redrect) and it has a sighted revision (currently, sighters do auto-sight on creation/change) and point it to [[:de:Sergej Lifar]] (with "j"). Then move [[:de:Sergej Lifar]] to [[:de:Sergei Michailowitsch Lifar]].
Despite fixing links, Special:Whatlinkshere/Sergei_Michailowitsch_Lifar now will still show the first page [[:de:Serge Lifar]] as a redirect, linking to the old destination. After un-sighting/un-flagging all marked revisions of [[:de:Serge Lifar]] (and [[:de:Sergej Lifar]], see #1) the list at Special:Whatlinkshere/Sergei_Michailowitsch_Lifar will be correct again!

On link change (manually or by page move), Special:Whatlinkshere does not get updated!

Comment 2 Melancholie 2008-05-07 15:36:51 UTC
Logs for #2:


Un-marking has to be done on the article [[:de:Sergei Michailowitsch Lifar]] for clearing former article [[:de:Sergej Lifar]]'s "spooky" flags!
So, that has to be done retroactively, as it seems.
Comment 3 Aaron Schulz 2008-05-07 16:11:31 UTC
The links are the UNION of the stable and draft. Also, some of these things used jobqueue, so they can take time. I did make some internal link cleanup in r34376, as well, so some possible bugs are gone.
Comment 4 Melancholie 2008-05-07 16:27:10 UTC
Anyway, it's getting silent on dewiki concerning bugs; that's a good sign :-)
Comment 5 Melancholie 2008-05-08 13:14:43 UTC
This only works for users not being a sighter! [[:de:User:Video2005]] is fixing links as sighter, but Special:WhatLinksHere does not update on this users edits, still.

See [[:de:Hilfe_Diskussion:Gesichtete_und_geprüfte_Versionen#.C3.84nderung_Wikilinks_bei_gesichteten_Artikeln]]
Comment 6 Melancholie 2008-05-08 13:29:28 UTC
Note: This probably might also affect DEFAULTSORT bug 14000

Comment 7 Melancholie 2008-05-08 15:23:44 UTC
You can test this with [[:de:Disciple]]!
You cannot get [[:de:Spezial:Linkliste/Band]] to remove that article correct.
Not if sighter, not if ordinary user, not if IP.

Doesn't seem to be there
Comment 9 Melancholie 2008-05-08 18:40:26 UTC
Is no more. User:TheK made a change, for him it worked out.
Might there be some kind of lag the reason for this?
Comment 10 Aaron Schulz 2008-05-10 16:58:54 UTC
OK, I can repro this on my testwiki
Comment 11 Aaron Schulz 2008-05-11 00:29:49 UTC
Fixed in r34606
