Description Mets501 2006-11-11 18:41:27 UTC
Special:DoubleRedirects has various issues.
1) If there are other links on the page of a normal (single) redirect, if any of
the other links link to a redirect, the page will be listed at
Special:DoubleRedirects.
2) When redirects are cleared, their "spots" will still be taken up on the
special page, but they will not be listed, forcing you to press "Next" many
times to get to the redirects.
3) The page sometimes updates extremely infrequently, and it would be much
better if it updated more frequently.

It's better to report seperate bugs, because Bugzilla is built for that.

That's Bug 7794.

Please explain the problem more clearly.

I think that the page is updated daily in Wikipedia, and something like once a
week in other sites. It's not a MediaWiki bug.

I suggest that this bug will be about the second problem (which I didn't
understand yet), as the first is reported in another bug, and the third is not a
MediaWiki bug. You can report the third problem on another bug, under the
product Wikimedia.

Suppose 500 redirects are listed at Special:DoubleRedirects.  The first 50 will
be displayed by default.  Someone then comes and fixes the first 50 double
redirects.  Then someone else goes to Special:DoubleRedirects.  The first page
is now empty, and the person has the click "Next" to see the next 50 redirects
(which will start at #51).  If 400 redirects are cleared, "Next 50" has to be
clicked quite a few times (or you can display 500) to see the next redirects
(which will start at #401)l
Comment 3 Rotem Liss 2006-11-11 18:59:25 UTC
OK. Full description, I think:

Cached query page items seem to use fixed numbers, which may cause pages without
items in pages which remove changed items are removed (e.g.
Special:DoubleRedirects).

It may make sense to remove the fixed numbers. I will check the querycache table
structure for more information.

Workaround: Use "View 500 items".
Comment 4 Mets501 2006-11-11 19:01:28 UTC
Yes, that's the correct description.
