Description Henry Lyne 2008-06-12 22:49:12 UTC
Pages should have a link to themselves, at the top of the page. Either add a link around the heading e.g. <a href=""><h1 class="firstHeading">Pencil</h1></a>, or put a small link nearby e.g. <a href="">[<span class="linkitself">link</span>]</a>

This is a UI enhancement suggestion, and I'm not certain this is the best place to submit it. If not, please direct me elsewhere.

A little more around this idea. While many page links can be retrieved from the browser location field, many pages are redirected to from somewhere else.
For example:
Redirects to:
Which is actually:

My browser contains the redirect URL which is long, and while the actual page URL(ending in /Pencil) is obvious, I need to type it into my browser to confirm and then copy and paste to use it elsewhere. I would like to be able to click on the most direct link to the current page and have it the browsers refresh, or right-click on the link and 'Save Link' to my clipboard for pasting elsewhere. The whole idea is to make the copying and pasting of links more user-friendly.

This already exists.  Click the "article" tab at the top of the page (or "discussion", if that's where you are; or "special page", or wherever).
