Description Charlotte Webb 2006-11-06 03:13:02 UTC
Normally, when a I create a redirect and leave the edit summary blank, a default
comment of "Redirecting to [[Foo]]" is automatically produced.

However, if the redirect was created by unusual means, such as substituting a
template or variable, the automatic summary does not work.

For example, if I create a redirect from [[Bettles]] to [[Bettles, Alaska]]
using a shortcut:

#redirect [[{{subst:PAGENAME}}, Alaska]]

The edit summary is left blank instead of having an automatic comment.

Ewwww subst. :)

Needs to be fixed to run checks after pre-save transform, presumably.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2006-11-06 18:00:22 UTC
Fixed in r17462
Comment 3 Rob Church 2006-11-06 20:08:05 UTC
Yes, it wasn't bulletproof at the time, nor was it intended to be. :)
