Adds a checkbox when moving pages which allows the redirect to be deleted (4.87 KB, patch)

Description Sam Horn 2006-12-18 15:53:13 UTC
Currently, when moving pages, if you don't need the redirect, you have to
manually go back and delete it. This requires an additional 4 clicks, which is
an additional 4 page loads, and even more if you want to delete the redirect to
the talk page as well.

There should be an option when moving a page (for people with the 'delete'
permission) that will automatically delete the redirect after moving the page.
This could be useful when reverting vandalism (such as moving "Wikipedia ON
WHEELS" back to "Wikipedia"), spelling mistakes ("History of Denark" to "History
of Denmark"), and other situations when redirects aren't needed from the old page.

Marking as a duplicate; please check more carefully next time. Feel free to post
the patch on the target bug, although I would suggest actually doing it properly
- put the messages into the language file and provided a unified diff including
them.
