Description David Benbennick 2005-07-04 21:59:55 UTC
See, for example, [[User:Dbenbenn/sandbox2]], which consists of 
 
#redirect [[Commons:Main Page]] 
 
The result is the English [[Main Page]], with the title 
"Commons:Main Page".
Comment 1 Rowan Collins [IMSoP] 2006-01-21 12:33:58 UTC
Interwiki redirects have been enabled and disabled at various times, due to
vandalism and technical issues. Currently, that redirect does nothing at all.

Thanks Rowan for the comment!

The actual intended configuration at MediaWiki Foundation project is to disable
these links. The problem of circular redirects is addressed at
Bug 850: Circular redirects not caught between wikis

There is a note about "faking interwiki / interlanguage links" to meta (but
these are *no* redirects). All projects will allow "faked" interlanguage links
trough the "meta:" prefix. See some new examples at
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Gangleri/tests/bugzilla/00850/note_c8

I amnot sure if the resolution for this bug / report is FIXED / WONTFIXED or
INVALID.

From the perspecive of a general non Wikimedia Foundation wiki this feature
could be enabeled (despite the fact that it is a rsecurity whole allowing
infinite loops).

If this (enable / disable multiproject redirects) is configurable please let
some lines about the involved variables etc.

Thanks in advance!

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]
