Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-01-17 09:34:51 UTC

Please compare with
Bug 502: Bad title error condition produces some silly links

If you open
you get the imprression that the summary of this bug should be
"[[Error]] is generated in the main namespace - this should be a dummy special page"

But if you take a closer look you will see that the url's generated by the tabs
are pointing somewhere else.

There are more posibilities to fix this:
a) the displayed header (header text) should be somethink like
{{MediaWiki:Error}} {{MediaWiki:At}} {{FULLPAGENAME}}
Note that [[MediaWiki:Error]] exists bit [[MediaWiki:At]] does not.
b) create a dummy special page for error conditions (which should not be
included / visible at [[special:Specialpages]].

read more about the url of this bug at:

another page
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2006-01-17 10:19:31 UTC
Your URL is in article namespace, so it's not too surprising the links are too. 
If you change the URL to another namespace, they change to follow.

Resolving INVALID.

Thanks Brion!

I just noticed myself comparing this url with the one from
Bug 2455: correct navigation links for diffs between two different pages
