Description Mormegil 2005-07-12 07:30:44 UTC
After the recent modification of Special:Disambiguations, there are some unresolved issues:
1. The relevant interface strings in the Language.php file(s) should be updated, esp. the Disambiguationstext should be the other way around.
2. Redirects should be either left out from the list, or (maybe a better idea) marked as such. Redirects to disambig pages are often intentional, e.g. for alternative spelling or punctuation (consider e.g. [[en:AmericA]], [[cs:B.S.P.]])

will have a look :)
Comment 2 Mormegil 2005-07-12 07:50:21 UTC
One more idea: only pages in the main namespace should be considered disambiguation pages.
E.g. every disambig page links to [[Wikipedia:Disambiguation]], which is also marked as a disambig
page because it contains the {{Disambig}} as an example, so that every disambig page is in the list.
Comment 3 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2005-07-13 17:24:45 UTC
For that last comment, change [[MediaWiki:Disambiguationspage]]
so it contains:
 template:disambiguation
instead of
 wikipedia:disambiguation

I guess I have not expressed clearly. I did change that. On cs:, the Template:Disambiguation (actually,
[[cs:Šablona:Rozcestník]]) contains an explicit _link_ to [[cs:Wikipedie:Rozcestníky]]. But,
[[cs:Wikipedie:Rozcestníky]] contains {{Rozcestník}} (serving as an example), so that every disambiguation
page contains a link to a page marked as disambiguation.

Huh... still a bit unclear, isn't it? Take a look at [[cs:Template:Disambig]], [[cs:Wikipedie:Rozcestníky]]
and their respective What links here, it might make more sense (and maybe not).

(Anyway, I do believe that only pages in the main namespace should be considered disambiguation pages.)
Comment 5 Will Hirsch 2008-01-21 23:19:24 UTC
This bug is still open? Special:Disambiguations is really messy. The (Edit) link should not be capitalised and the brackets should be outside the link.
Comment 6 Andrew Garrett 2009-07-29 16:39:02 UTC
Adding 'tracking' keyword.
Comment 7 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2010-09-07 21:09:02 UTC
Unassigning myself since I am currently busy in the networking world.
Comment 8 db [inactive,noenotif] 2013-11-16 23:02:28 UTC
special page was removed with Gerrit change #74096
