Description Timwi 2004-09-03 03:22:33 UTC
Originally submitted by Andre Engels (a_engels)  2003-12-15 23:00

In Dutch, the 'ij' is often seen as one letter, and
therefore an article like 'ijs' is at 'IJs', not 'Ijs'.
To make everything work correctly, links from the
second to the first need to be added.

When I recently did so, I found that these were not
visible on 'What links here'. Other redirects caused no
problems, and older redirects of this kind did show up,
so I get the impression that for some reason redirects
of this kind do not get put into the 'links' table when

Example of pages where things went wrong:
[[nl:ijsdag]], [[nl:ijzerslangen]]. They went correct
on [[nl:ijzerslang]] (redirecting to IJzerslangen
rather than IJzerslang), and old copies are correct on
for example [[nl:ijs]] and [[nl:ijsduiker]].
Comment 1 Timwi 2004-09-03 22:00:50 UTC
Simply modifying the redirect in a way I did on [[nl:Ijsdag]] [1] and
[[nl:Ijzerslangen]] [2] seems to fix this.

The problem was occurring on 2003-12-15 (v1.1.0?), and seemed to be fixed in the
software before 2004-09-03 (v1.3.2?).
Any remaining "missing links" can be fixed by editing and saving the redirect,
until someone rebuilds the links tables.
