Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2004-11-18 18:48:28 UTC
See [[en:User:Gangleri/tests/empty/empty/not_empty]] and 
[[test:User:Gangleri/tests/empty/empty/not_empty]] (
http://test.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Gangleri/tests/empty/empty/not
_empty ).

Navigation links from a "subpage" to all "higher" (sub-)pages are 
shown EXCEPT for the "not empty" ones.

a) Personaly I think, that the navigation would be more 
informative, if the links to "higher" empty pages would be 
available too.

b) I could see an intermittent problem at different subpages in 
the User namespace. For some time at [[en:User:Gangleri/tests]] 
the navigation to [[en:User:Gangleri]] did not show up. At some 
point I noticed, that the signature [[en:User:Gangleri]] 
was "red" too. This maight be an explanation why the navigation 
was not there. Another explanation, the MediaWiki software 
(modules) changed in the mean time.

c) Would be happy if same navigation would be available for all 
namespaces (except special, where it probably would not apply).

Comment 1 Mark Wojtowicz 2004-11-19 16:22:53 UTC
Empty parent subpages not showing up is caused by this line in Skin.php:

if(preg_match('/class="new"/i',$getlink)) { break; } # this is a hack, but it
saves time

I'm not sure what purpose it serves, but it has been in since the initial
revision.  Removing the line fixes it.  It also makes subpages such as:

Page/emtpy/not_empty/empty/not_empty

show only a link back to "Page" because it stops as soon as it finds a broken link.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2004-11-19 20:33:50 UTC
That line serves the purpose of suppressing false subpage links on pages that aren't actually subpages (because no 
"parent" page exists). This is intended behavior.
