Description Paolo Benvenuto 2012-11-07 16:06:58 UTC
When a page is moved from ns0 to another ns, either creating a link from old to new page or not, the article count doesn't change: apparently the moved page keeps being counted forever.

regression from already fixed bug ?
Comment 1 Paolo Benvenuto 2012-11-07 16:07:29 UTC
The bug is present since at least 1.16
Comment 2 Bawolff (Brian Wolff) 2013-01-15 16:07:20 UTC
btw, what namespace did you move it to? ns0 is not the only namespace counted as an article.

changing bug title because originally i thought you meant the article id number
Comment 3 Paolo Benvenuto 2013-01-15 19:36:19 UTC
According to , only pages in ns0 are counted as articles, and I didn't change it in my wiki.
