In the past was the case that when there was a image on commons, people could
find it as well by typing "image:Name.extention" in their own wiki, and got a
discriptionpage witht the image, saying the image was availeble via Wikimedia
Commons. When you type now for instance "Image:Community.gif" in en.wikipedia,
while it does exist on commons, see
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:Community.gif . I think this is a bug
that entered during last updates. Some days ago the function was there i think.
As far as I know we haven't had this; there's some special-case code for inline links
showing blue instead of red, but I don't recall anything about 'go' searches.
It'd be easy enough to add, though.
In articles, links to Commons images appear in blue, but in the history, they
appear in red.
, there the link to the image is blue.
where the image link is in red.
However, unlike the history function, the Deletion Log normally shows image
links in blue -- unless the image is on Commons, when the link is shown in red.
for the deletion log where I deleted an image redundant to a Commons image. When
clicking on this link, I'd like to be taken directly to the image description
page, in this case http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Basil_1511.jpg , not (as
it is now) to the edit mode page
I hope this made sense...
err, the image name in the example should be Image:Bascinet2.jpg consistantly
(not Basil_1511.jpg), but I think you get the point.
