Description Andreas Hörstemeier 2007-03-05 12:33:07 UTC
Until recently links with a colon at begin weren't listed in the WhatLinksHere
of an Image. There should be either a second WhatUsesImage which only include
the actual uses of an image/media, or this change of behaviour should be undone.
Now it gets much more difficult to clean the pages using Example.jpg
accidentally, as much more pages are listed.
Comment 1 Rob Church 2007-03-05 18:02:06 UTC
It's a link to the image, so it shows up in What Links Here. This behaviour
should not have changed for some time.

Comment 3 Andreas Hörstemeier 2007-03-05 22:17:57 UTC
The behaviour changed between last Friday and today, and those with colon had
never been linked before. While it is a link, for images a link and a use is
something different, which should be treated differently.
Comment 4 Andreas Hörstemeier 2007-03-06 12:41:57 UTC
I have to correct myself - it was someone who "fixed" the links on my user page
I use to find the wrong uses, and I didn't realize I was looking at a totally
different page. Sorry.
