Description Amgine 2005-06-29 01:56:08 UTC
On Wikinews under 1.5beta1, some articles which are clearly linked from other
pages are found on the Special:Lonelypages.

Example is [[Voyager 1 enters heliosheath at edge of solar system]], which is
linked from a user's page and is also on the archive page
[[Wikinews:2005/May/24]]. This may also indicate a larger bug, as
Comment 1 Amgine 2005-06-29 01:57:58 UTC
does not indicate all links to the article.
Comment 2 Zhen Lin 2005-06-30 11:50:57 UTC
I quote from the top of Special:Lonelypages: "The following data is cached and
may not be completely up to date."

The latter issue may indicate that the links table is no longer current and
needs refreshing.

Reported at bug 340.
Comment 4 Zigger 2005-06-30 20:17:40 UTC
Perhaps the strike-out approach from bug 2630 fix could also be done for
Special:Lonelypages ?

Comment #2 sums it up.
