Description Judson (enwiki:cohesion) 2007-01-07 20:29:43 UTC
The Special page Broken redirects has a button for each one to edit the page.
This is not needed for anything, but a link to delete the page would be very
helpful. It could work exactly the same way, just go to action=delete rather
than action=edit.
Comment 1 Rob Church 2007-01-07 20:31:26 UTC
I think it would be a good idea to keep the edit link, as it might be that the
redirect can be fixed to point to an appropriate location.

Showing a delete link for users with the appropriate permission seems like a
sensible enough option, though.
Comment 2 Judson (enwiki:cohesion) 2007-01-07 20:42:56 UTC
Sure, that would be fine :) On enwiki people should still check the page since
the report isn't live, but for other wikis this would be very useful.
Comment 3 Rob Church 2007-01-14 22:01:08 UTC
Fixed in r19262.
Comment 4 Edgaras 2007-01-15 09:45:21 UTC
