Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2008-02-17 06:44:58 UTC
Dear friends;

In order to reference sections of older revisions for UTF-8 pagenames generating very long url's I used to reference sections as:

For a reason unknown to me these links all show the newest version.

I assume this is a bug. This is what a « Permanent link » link means to me. Maybe I was wrong in the past.

This page still shows « Permanent link » . As far as I remember the behaviour changed; some 16 months ago this was not the case.

Best regards Reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

P.S. 491241, 491281 and 510473 are all revissions of the mentined page

If one is using a random number as 20 (mentioned in #mediawiki one gets another page

note: I was told that what one can see is a transclusrion from
shows a different content.

Closing this bug as INVALID.

As mentioned in the note before both different pages show the « Permanent link » and preserve the id's generating either

Sorry for the confusion.

Best regards Reinhardt [[user:Gangleri]]
