Description Brion Vibber 2005-11-01 05:54:07 UTC
The subtitle text on redirect pages has been overridden to say 'Redirect page'. While 
kind of neat, this obscures the 'Redirected from' backlink if the reason you're seeing 
the page is that it's a double-redirect. This makes it difficult to figure out what's 
going on and fix the problem.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Create [[A]] with text: #redirect [[B]]
2) Create [[B]] with text: #redirect [[C]]
3) Go to [[A]]

Expected results:
Title "B"
Subtitle "Redirected from [[A]]", with backlink
pretty redirect icon, and link to C

Actual results:
Title "B"
Subtitle "Redirect page", NO backlink
pretty redirect icon, and link to C.

Fixed; now leaves the 'redirected from' in place if it's there.
