BUG MIGRATED FROM SOURCEFORGE

See <a href="http://meta.wikipedia.org/w/wiki.phtml?title=MediaWiki_1.3_comments_and_bug_reports&action=edit&section=34">here</a>. Copying:

<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Perseus-slays-medusa.jpg">This image</a>, for instance, appears in <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perseus_%28mythology%29">this page</a>, but does not appear under "image links".

Editing a page that links to the image seems to re-associate the link.

1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Rh%2C45.jpg didn't
show a backlink to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhodium.
2. I added the image to
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Paddu/sandbox.
3. Now it only showed one backlink to my sandbox.
4. I added more copies of the image to my sandbox.
5. It still showed only one backlink to my sandbox.

I thought that the list of backlinks always omitted one
entry due to some off-by-one error.

6. I commented out the image in
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhodium (this was just for a
short duration, I was too lazy to upload an image just to
check this & then ask sysops to delete it after the experiment).
7. It still showed one backlink to my sandbox.
8. I uncommented the image from
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhodium.
9. It still showed one backlink to my sandbox.
10. I commented out the image in my sandbox.
11. Now it properly shows a link to
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhodium.

This was caused by an incomplete backup/restore during a database
crash. The image links simply need to be regenerated, and are
when the
page is edited.

This is not a software bug, but a wikipedia-specific issue.

Comment 4 Guanaco 2004-08-19 03:17:35 UTC
I believe that it occurs every time a wiki is upgraded from 1.2 to 1.3.
Comment 5 teunspaans 2004-08-27 14:22:06 UTC
Even when both the image description and the page linking to it are updated, 
sometimes the image is listed as unused.
see:

http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afbeelding:Iochroma_fuchsioides.jpg

http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iochroma

both were created by me today.

So it sems this is not 'just' a matter of conversion.
Comment 6 teunspaans 2004-08-27 15:13:00 UTC
The image i just reported finally shows the page from which it was linked.

I uploaded a new image :
http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afbeelding:Streptosolen_closeup.jpg

used from
http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Streptosolen

This link isnt shown either, but perhaps there is some delay so that it takes a few 
hours before the link is recognised?

Comment 8 Brion Vibber 2005-06-02 04:46:01 UTC
Old issue with links tables, which have since been regenerated.
Comment 9 Matthew Flaschen 2005-06-03 01:49:36 UTC
So now there will never be any delay?
Comment 10 Brion Vibber 2005-06-03 01:52:01 UTC
There was never any "delay". The links are either there or they're not.
Comment 11 Matthew Flaschen 2005-06-03 01:55:34 UTC
Okay, I apologize for being unclear.  Is it now the case that "What Links Here" will now always 
be correct for images, or are there caveats?
Comment 12 Brion Vibber 2005-06-03 06:17:44 UTC
It should always be correct unless there's some other problem.

Please don't change the severity of an old bug to "enhancement". Enhancement bug mean a 
request to add a new feature, which this never was.
Comment 13 Matthew Flaschen 2005-06-03 22:15:48 UTC
Thank you for your answer.  If I changed the status it was by mistake, and I apologize.
