Description Andre Engels 2004-08-14 09:59:03 UTC
A {{{Template parameter}}} is added as a (broken) link to [[Template:Template
parameter]] in the links list. If the same parameter is used often, a Template
therefore shows up in [[Special:Wantedpages]] without actually being used.

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 80 ***
Comment 2 Andre Engels 2004-09-16 08:26:24 UTC
The fact that this is described as a duplicate of 80 makes clear to me that it
is not understood what I'm saying here. What I mean is:

Suppose Template:Blabla has as its content:
This page is just some blabla about {{{subject}}}

Then the links table will state that Template:Blabla links to Template:Subject.

And if there are many of this kind of page, Template:Subject will appear on the
'most wanted pages' list, even though it is used nowhere at all.

Fixed in HEAD, not in REL1_3

This wasn't fixed in HEAD, but it should be now.
