Description Connel MacKenzie 2006-01-22 07:40:03 UTC
For tracking Webster's 1913 Dictionary entries, a dozen or so entries exist,
including the template {{dontlinkhere}} to make tracking down "unclean" imports

Since the conversion (June 2005) to lower case, these entries no longer appear
on Template:dontlinkhere's WhatLinksHere special page.

I am manually doing null-edits to the entries I know of, with the single
exception of [[OFris.]] so you can see what I mean.  

Pages that link these pages do appear for cleanup activities, but the
intermediate pages do not (because of this bug) leading some of the more
industrious <s>assholes</s><u>contributors</u> to nominate the template for
deletion.  Since the cleanup entries are there only for short periods of time,
and the intermediate pages also don't appear on WhatLinksHere, it becomes quite

Comment 1 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-01-22 11:09:07 UTC
[[OFris.]] link should be [[wikt:OFris.]]
see the link [[Special:Contributions/Conversion_script]] in the history

marking as "blocks"
Bug 2098: action=purge and categories - implement a more effectiv action=update
or action=rebuild

action=update should have the same effect as "doing null-edits".

Comment 2 Tim Starling 2006-03-01 13:54:31 UTC
Presumably this was fixed when refreshLinks.php was run on January 27?
Comment 3 Connel MacKenzie 2006-03-01 17:01:41 UTC
Probably.  It ''seems'' to be working now, but it is rather hard to tell for
sure.  Is refreshLinks run on a regular schedule, i.e. monthly?
Comment 4 Rob Church 2006-07-05 22:41:21 UTC
This would have been fixed per comment #2.
