Description Connel MacKenzie 2006-08-30 19:16:39 UTC
I'd like to be able to make this entry at like

#redirect [[put one's finger on|common idiom form]]

Which would have the "|common idiom form" part display as the redirect comment
on the "redirected from" line.

''Subnote (possibly a separate request itself):'' Naturally, people will be
tempted to standardize those messages with templates.  If templates need to be
prohibited, an error message saying they are, would be helpful.
Comment 1 Aaron Schulz 2006-08-30 19:23:53 UTC
It might be useful to see exactly where you were redirected from in cases where
you are clicking links that are redirects or you think you made a typo (the I
suppose you could look at the URL)

Perhaps it would be better to have the text to the right of the "|" show in
parenthesis at the end of the redirect comment, ie "Redirected from X (Y)".
Comment 2 Connel MacKenzie 2006-08-30 19:41:09 UTC
That's for the clarification.  The Redirection itself is already in parenthesis
though.  And it already does identify the page it came from.  I am suggesting
the comment ''in addition'' to the page it was redirected from.  Sorry if I
implied otherwise by poor wording.
Comment 3 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2006-08-31 00:46:55 UTC
Excellent idea for the syntax.  Should have thought of that . . .
