Description Lupin 2006-03-18 14:29:09 UTC
Parameters appended to special page urls should be passed to the target where
this makes sense. For example, 

  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Mypage?action=history

should load the history of my user page instead of viewing the user page itself.
This applies to Special:Mytalk (and less usefully, Special:Randompage) too.
Comment 1 Rob Church 2006-04-30 02:28:36 UTC
Addressed in SVN trunk, r13956. We can now code certain of the redirecting
special pages to specify parameters from the request string which should be
carried forward to the redirect.
Comment 2 Minh Nguyễn 2006-05-09 00:44:21 UTC
This still doesn't work with URLs like
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Mypage/monobook.css?action=edit . Instead
of editing monobook.css, it edits the main userpage.
Comment 3 Rob Church 2006-05-09 15:53:38 UTC
Should be addressed in SVN trunk, r14142.
Comment 4 brianna.laugher 2006-06-15 07:38:41 UTC
Would it be possible to subst Special:Mypage ? It doesn't seem to work at the
moment, but would it be possible to implement?

This would be handy *-self templates for images at the Commons, since the file
history doesn't transclude.
