Description Jamie Hari 2006-02-05 22:42:20 UTC
The code on my example url is:

#redirect [[{{SITENAME}}:Protected page guidelines]]

It should redirect to the MarvelDatabase:Protected page guidelines page, but
instead it renders:

1. redirect MarvelDatabase:Protected page guidelines

(As if I was using the '#' symbol to create a numbered list.)

1. foo
2. bar
3. etc
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2006-02-05 22:48:27 UTC
A redirect target needs to be raw plain text because it's extracted 
directly, not rendered as wikitext.

If you want a generic name for the project namespace, use 'Project:' 
which is the standard alias for it.

REOPENing and marking as a duplicate of
Bug 1575: #REDIRECT with transcluded string does not redirect

{{SITENAME}} does not change (quite often). If you need some "page source" to
insert in more the one wikies please tray:

#REDIRECT [[{{SUBST:SITENAME}}:Protected page guidelines]]

This worked at .
