Description Mihai Floran 2005-07-19 07:57:37 UTC
Here is not appearing anything: 

but in fact there exists some pages which contains that template (in ROmanian:
Template=Format) and some of them can be seen at:

A real example is at:

There can be seen another example: {{MSJ:Parnulocalitati}} which also cannot be
seen at
but at search.

There can be more problems like this...

This bug may relate to the fact that Mihai's bot has changed the pages found
with [[ro:Special:Whatlinkshere/Format:MSJ:ciot]]
replacing {{MSJ:ciot}} with {{ciot}} some months ago.

[[Special:Whatlinkshere/Foo]] is limited to 500 (?) results.
It seems that this is *not* updated when these pages / some of these changes get

I assume that many resource consuming operations would be required to keep
[[Special:Whatlinkshere/foo]] up to date.

I could see that the MediaWiki message at [[de:Special:Whatlinkshere/foo]] has
an note about this as a kind of *workaround*:
(Manche Seiten werden u. U. mehrfach gelistet, können in seltenen Fällen aber
auch fehlen. Dies rührt von alten Fehlern in der Software her, ist aber
ansonsten harmlos.)

Changed "Severity" to trivial, modified "Hardware", "OS".
