Description El 2005-01-28 17:10:14 UTC
When I rename a page, the redirect is not
created properly. There is an entry in the
revision table, but with rev_page=0.

The problem probably lies in Title::moveToNewTitle
(and Title::moveOverExistingRedirect):

$dbw->insert( 'revision', array(
			'rev_id' => $dbw->nextSequenceValue('rev_rev_id_seq'),
			'rev_comment' => $comment,
			'rev_user' => $wgUser->getID(),
			'rev_user_text' => $wgUser->getName(),
			'rev_timestamp' => $now,
			'inverse_timestamp' => $won ), $fname

rev_page is missing here.
Comment 1 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2005-01-31 23:01:29 UTC
Fixed now.
The redirect article was created correctly but innaccessible
cause of the missing rev_page.
Comment 2 El 2005-02-01 15:47:41 UTC
The same problem still exists in moveOverExistingRedirect.

And there is an additional bug in that function:
The old redirect is not deleted completely, only the
entry in the "page" table, not the entries in the
"revision" and "text" tables.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2005-04-22 12:05:14 UTC
Please test with current code and confirm if it's still there.
Comment 4 El 2005-04-29 10:36:27 UTC
Seems to be OK now.
