Description Jeff Bonham 2005-02-21 19:14:05 UTC
An example of something I wanted to do: 
 
#REDIRECT [[Wikipedia:Today's featured article/{{CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{CURRENTDAY}},  
{{CURRENTYEAR}}]] 
 
This displays as if &redirect=no were included in the URL.  No redirection happens. 
 
Bug #927 sounds similar to this by the title but by the description it seems to be a  
different bug.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-02-21 20:12:10 UTC
A redirect must specify an actual title.

http://jadesukka.homelinux.org:8180/betawiki/Today%27s_featured_article

provides a workaround for the the original request using
{{Today's featured article/{{CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{CURRENTDAY}}, {{CURRENTYEAR}}}}

Note: It is *safer* to use inclusions from the *template* namespace. The
original request asked for an inclusion of a page from the *project* namespace
where several restrictions would apply.

in response to comment 0
> A redirect must specify an *actual title*.

The original templates include variables. The examples below do *not*.

http://test.leuksman.com/index.php?title=Template:R1link&action=edit
[[Main Page]]
http://test.leuksman.com/index.php?title=Template:R1&action=edit
Main Page

http://test.leuksman.com/index.php?title=R1link&action=edit
#REDIRECT {{R1link}}
http://test.leuksman.com/index.php?title=R1&action=edit
#REDIRECT [[{{R1}}]]
None of the last would generate a redirect.

These redirects are quite theoretical but to some extend they are unchanged
*actual title* as a distinction from the templates in comment 0 where variables
are used.

Anyhow changes in both cases would be triggered at another / other objects then
the redirect page itself and "adjusting link tables" would have a similar level
of complexity which could grow if nested templates would be used.

Despite the fact that the requirement is quit intuitive it would be probably
best to leave this request as "WONTFIX".

Is there any news about that bug ? (sorry for having created one other ...)
Comment 10 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2006-10-27 19:57:48 UTC
The official word since February 21, 2005 is that it's not going to be changed,
and indicated by CLOSED WONTFIX.  Argue with Brion about it on IRC if you want,
but he's the lead developer and what he's said stays out of the code stays out
of the code until he says otherwise.
Comment 11 Emilien ARNAUD 2006-10-27 21:00:16 UTC
Do we know why it's marked as CLOSED WONTFIX ?
Looked from Brion on IRC, not there ... :(
Comment 12 Robert Stojnic 2006-10-27 22:23:54 UTC
(In reply to comment #11)

Please look at Brion's comments on earlier duplicate bugs (e.g. Bug 4763 and Bug
4882)
