Description Colin Fine 2007-03-02 14:19:57 UTC
I wanted to make a relative link from a subpage to a named section on the parent

The obvious syntax I tried is
but this gives a red link to page <parent>/ (ending with the slash).

The wiki on which I have hit the problem is only at 1.6.8, but I've just tried
it on meta (see URL), which appears to be running 1.10alpha

Child links ([[/child#heading]]) seem to work fine, so it may be something
special about the parent-dir processing.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2007-07-12 21:02:58 UTC
Parser::maybeDoSubpageLink() wasn't splitting out the hashes.

Fixed in r24046.
