Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-07-18 19:57:53 UTC

To my knowledge the result of the Special:Whatlinkshere query is limited (to 500).

requirement of this enhancement:
a) *all* redirects (up to 500) should be shown; it might be that at the moment
the query would suppress some of them depending on their "location" in the
search result.

b) it might be a good idea to list the redirects first, then the other links;

note about the sort order: I experienced that many querries sort at the moment
by rcid (?). This is quite outdated because visitors / users need to read the
result line by line. An alphabetical sort would provide more help.

Best regards Reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

Special:Whatlinkshere is now "paged", with no set limit, so all linking pages
and redirects will now always be available. However, I don't know that they'll
be at the beginning, so retitling the bug as a request for that.

I see no particular reason to do this.
