I noticed an error with redirects.
Example: the correct name for an article is ''[[TrueType]]''. An redirect page
exists by the name [[True type]]. When making a article cross link by the name
''[[True Type]]'' (this redirect page does not exist yet), you will get an red
link, yet when '''searching/going''' for ''True Type'', you will be redirected
to TrueType, as MediaWiki automatically lower-cases the "Type" in "True Type".
This is annoying, as it makes you think such an article/redirect does not exist
already, yet when proving your guess a redirect seems to work
You can reproduce the problem over at the english Wikipedia, as there exist the
True Type example article and its redirect "True type", but not "True Type".
Expected result: link has to be blue (= working redirect)
Actual result: link is red (= no working redirect)
Ok, the above True Type example can fool you as on bugzilla here all links seem
to be blue. Better reproduce them one time over at the english Wikipedia to
There's not a redirect, so a link wouldn't work. Searches aren't links.
