Description David Benbennick 2006-04-02 08:29:31 UTC
I noticed a red link at the top of [[FreeDOS]] to [[FreeDOS32]], a page that
exists.  The problem is that the link is generated via

[[:{{NAMESPACE}}: FreeDOS32]]

The {{NAMESPACE}} is null, and the parser gets confused by the space: it makes a
red link to the page called _FreeDOS32.

See http://test.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bugzilla_report_on_NAMESPACE_red_links for a
more permanent example of this bug in action.

This is like

re: *_FreeDOS32*
There are no heading and trailing spaces / underscores in page titles.
I agree that the url looks like
http://test.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=_Bug_5427&action=edit
but the header shows "Editing Bug 5427".
This might be confusing for some users.

*note*

In the past I have seen many such references containing links with {{NAMESPACE}}
in templates and some templates did fail when used in the image and category
namespace.
There are many aproaches on "inline" referencing. One is
Bug 2370: request for a <inline> ... </inline> extension

http://test.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bug_5427 no longer shows open issues. Closing FIXED.
