Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-06-10 00:58:34 UTC
please see

Two examples are shown where A redirects to B redirects to C bot
"''Special:Whatlinkshere/C''" does not list A.

In B and C both LTR and RTL characters are used.
A is in the template namespace wherin B and C are in the project namespace.

Regards Reinhardt
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-06-10 02:55:46 UTC
This appears to have nothing to do with RTL.

Steps to reproduce:
* Create [[Cxeno1]] redirecting to [[Cxeno2]]
* Create [[Cxeno2]]
* Rename [[Cxeno2]] to [[Cxeno3]]

Expected results:
Special:Whatlinkshere/Cxeno3 should show incoming redirects via Cxeno2 and Cxeno1.

Actual results:
Special:Whatlinkshere/Cxeno3 shows nothing.
Special:Whatlinkshere/Cxeno2 shows a loop, with a redirect from itself to itself in 
addition to the redirect from Cxeno1.

Page move appears to be adding a redirect link in pagelinks pointing to the old title 
instead of the new title.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2005-06-10 03:03:43 UTC
Fixed in CVS HEAD.

Wouldn't affect 1.4 as this is a bug in new code in 1.5 from pagelinks table change.
Comment 3 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-06-10 06:39:49 UTC
Thanks Brion!

Please verify if
bug 2302: "move a page containing references to itself trough anchors and
Special:Whatlinkshere will fail"
is a duplicate of this bug
