Description MZMcBride 2012-03-14 22:35:50 UTC
The auto-generated API documentation (<https://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php>) should mention the equivalent user interface Special page if there is one. For example, a user searching the page for the equivalent of "Special:WhatLinksHere" can't easily discover that such functionality is tucked away in list=backlinks.

This is one example; there are likely others.
