Description Rémi Kaupp 2006-01-15 17:01:34 UTC
Special:Whatlinkshere should allow the user to select which namespace to select.
For instance, on the French Wikipedia, it would allow to trace back references
to pages in [Reference:] namespace, while ignoring user pages or meta pages
which link there too.

Comment 2 freakofnurture 2006-04-09 02:03:53 UTC
cool, a drop-down menu to select namespaces would be ideal, checkboxes, like the
ones used for [[Special:Search]] would be even sweeter, but not critical. ~~~~

This request was mentioned at
Bug 2306: Special:Whatlinkshere lists ordered by creation timestamp - ordering
and filtering should be possible
Comment 4 Cedders 2006-04-30 18:38:52 UTC
I wanted to request this functionality too.  It would be particularly useful to
be able to limit to just the Main namespace on Wikipedia when taking an article
from the {{Opentasks}} template, since hundreds of users will link to the page;
also when doing disambiguation link repair.

Just to inform everyone waiting on this that Interiot has a tool
(http://tools.wikimedia.de/~interiot/cgi-bin/queries/whatlinkshere) that can
order What Links Here entries according to namespace. Oh, and apologies for the
duplicate entry.
Comment 7 Rob Church 2006-07-08 11:00:19 UTC
That does not help non-users of Wikimedia web sites, hence the reason this
request is filed against MediaWiki.

Reply to #6: The tool doesn't work, at least not for the three dab pages I've
adopted. For all three ("Swedish," "Norwegian" and "Ting," for the curious), the
tool returns "Sorry, no results found." All three have at least ten inbound
links. :-( (Too bad, because that would have been extremely useful for me. See
[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_%28technical%29#Specify_namespace_for_.22What_links_here.22_pages.3F
this].

pach for Special:Whatlinkshere can select namespace

I made a patch for SpecialWhatlinkshere to eneble select namespaces.
It also fixes page $limit bug (now you can back to correct previous/next page)
Comment 13 Makoto Imaizumi [Suisui] 2007-02-15 17:35:39 UTC

Comment 14 Makoto Imaizumi [Suisui] 2007-02-16 00:04:28 UTC

fixd version of before one

I re-maked a patch
which has no-change about LIMIT thing. (which JuLuF points me.)
It only add namespace select form and a bit SELECT
, and a change about related links.

Based on this patch fixed in r20616.
Comment 17 italvet 2007-04-19 09:54:58 UTC
A drop down menu is not deal. The best is you can choose as many namespaces you
want imho.
Comment 18 BLueFiSH.as from de.wp 2007-04-29 14:58:17 UTC
it would also be nice if redirects where not ignored on namespace selection.

example: all links to "WP:SGW" in
[http://de.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Spezial:Linkliste/Wikipedia:Schiedsgericht/Wahl&limit=500&from=0]
are ignored with an activated filter
[http://de.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?offset=&limit=500&target=Wikipedia%3ASchiedsgericht%2FWahl&title=Spezial%3ALinkliste&namespace=3]
Comment 19 Duncan Harris 2007-04-29 15:37:52 UTC
^ that should be added and dealt with as another bug.
