Description Russell Blau 2009-03-11 12:50:57 UTC
Since r45973, it has been possible to configure a wiki to allow double- or higher-level redirects, up to a maximum value given by $wgMaxRedirects.  If this variable is set to a value greater than 1, however, [[Special:DoubleRedirects]] will show redirects that are valid under the wiki's configuration.  The special page should be fixed to show only those redirect chains that exceed the maximum configured length, and probably should also be renamed to [[Special:MultipleRedirects]] or something similar.  The default introductory text in [[Mediawiki:Doubleredirectstext]] should also be updated, preferably incorporating the value of $wgMaxRedirects in the text, and [[Mediawiki:Doubleredirects]] should be changed to "Multiple redirects" or something similar.
Comment 1 Matthew Cutler 2009-03-11 18:17:00 UTC
I suggest a rename to [[Special:LongRedirectChains]] when this bug is fixed.

Is anything being done about this? It seems a waste of work to have introduced this new functionality if we're not going to be able to use it because of this one little remaining bug.

PS Similar situation at bug 17571, where I've suggested that there might be some connection between the two issues.
