Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-11-12 18:09:49 UTC

It is not obvious that
shows a blue link to a *redirect*. This is a double redirects. There are
hundered of them, see

requirement / proposal:
&redirect=no should mark redirects distinctly (doubl, multiple redirects and
redirects to itself). This would make it possible to identify these situations
without klicking on the link.

There have been many related / similar requirements:
- bug 2318: Special:Allpages should mark redirects distinctly
see bug comment 7
   see bug 2872: Redirect links on Special:Watchlist

   bug 759: Distinguish redirects on the watchlist editing page
   its duplicate: bug 2640: Mark redirects on watchlist edit
   bug 2814: Special:Disambiguations issues (interface strings, redirects)

   bug 2902: show all redirects to a page on the targets Special:Whatlinkshere
   if last contains more then (limit - 500?) links

- bug 3897: redirects to itself show now as blue links; they should not
