Description Broken Arrow 2007-03-07 22:29:31 UTC
It is currently impossible to customize the message by linking to some help page
explaining the redirect mechanism. 

Some suggestions already mentioned by devs on IRC:

* have some of these messages go through Linker::formatComment()

* a little (Help with redirects) or (What is a redirect?) link
Comment 1 Niklas Laxström 2009-01-31 21:50:40 UTC
Looks fixed to me:
includes/Article.php:829:                               $s = wfMsgExt( 'redirectedfrom', array( 'parseinline', 'replaceafter' ), $redir );
includes/Article.php:845:                               $s = wfMsgExt( 'redirectedfrom', array( 'parseinline', 'replaceafter' ), $redir );
