Description Voyagerfan5761 / dgw 2006-12-11 19:38:03 UTC
Viewing images works, but the Image tab appears as a redlink, and leads to an
edit page, stating that the page doesn't exist.  Since I know the files exist,
since I just viewed its page, this is most definitely a bug in the system.  The
URL I have provided is but one example; I have encountered this bug with every
image page I've visited recently.
Comment 1 Aaron Schulz 2006-12-11 20:40:13 UTC
Does the page actually have an edit history? It seems the there were no local
edits. The image is being copied from Commons along with the revision text since
there is none here (hence the red edit link).
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2006-12-11 20:51:58 UTC
That's an image on Commons, with no local page data.
Comment 3 Voyagerfan5761 / dgw 2006-12-12 00:03:39 UTC
Shouldn't it show up as an existing page anyway?  It would make sense.
Comment 4 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2006-12-12 03:48:19 UTC
Then edits to it would have to carry over to the Commons, which would be
plausible after single-user login is implemented.  That would be in the vein of
bug 1552.  If there's not a bug for that request, this could be repurposed. 
However, making it so that Commons pages really appear 100% as though they're in
the current wiki is really impossible: you can't sensibly make them appear that
way for the purposes of template/category inclusions, privileged actions like
deletions, etc.  Or rather you could, but it would mean basically abolishing the
Commons as we know it and replacing it by making some uploads default to upload
to all wikis or something (after which they could be dealt with locally, local
uploaded blocks could be instated in the event of local rule-breaking, etc.).

Which might not be a bad idea.  But I suspect that that's beyond the scope of
this proposal, not to mention the scope of the developers' interest at present.
