Originally submitted by Nobody/Anonymous - nobody  2004-06-08 04:56

After WP came back online, I found that the "What links 
here" in the few images I checked says that no pages 
link to them.

The ones I looked at were those linked to from 
[[National Gallery of Canada]] and [[Tom Thomson]].  I 
know that the National Gallery of Canada image on top 
worked just prior to WP going down, because I posted it 
myself just a couple of days ago!

This isn't a developer problem; this is a problem where the 
database didn't get converted properly. The site 
administrators need to do something about this; it's impossible 
to cull old and bad imaged without the WLH working.

(This is 'nobody'. My accursed machine now allows me to log in.)

Admins could rebuild the imagelinks table. That's all that's
required, really, and we wouldn't have to do this nonsense.
It's now more than two months, and still not done. Do I have
to stop being polite and piss on someone's shoes to get
anything done around here?

The code doesn't currently add entries to the link tables that 
would appear in "What links here", so rebuilding the tables would
nothing to help this bug.
