Description Danny B. 2008-10-04 13:10:52 UTC
Case:

Portal:Foo
Portal:Foo/item1
Portal:Foo/item2
Portal:Foo/item3
Portal:Foo/item4

anywhere

or even

Book
Book/chapter1
Book/chapter2
Book/chapter3
Book/chapter4

on Wikibooks

etc...


Now, Special:Random redirects (among others) to /itemX, /chapterX, etc. subpages which isn't good, especially on pages created from subpages, such as portals are, where such subpage could be eg. just POTD or so.

Maybe $wgRandomIgnoreSubpages global with default = true or even $wgRandomIgnoreSubpagesInNamespaces array of (0->1, 1->1, 2->0...) values could be added as well so in case any wiki would like to have the default ignore behavior overridable.

A relevant request was made a while ago, and I created an extension to be used for it. Please see bug 13051.
