Description Candalua 2013-05-31 19:38:49 UTC
In pages of Page namespace, it would be useful to have a directly link to the pages in ns0 that transclude the current Page.

This has been implemented on it.source as a gadget, but I think it would be nice to embed this feature in the ProofreadPage extension.

Gadget source code:

Example page with 2 links (the two tabs with the open book icon):

Isn't 'What links here' sufficient ?

No, absolutely. 'What links here' takes you to a *separate* page, where you see links, transclusions, redirect, all together. My proposal is to have a *direct* link to only the pages of ns0 that transcludes the current page, excluding links and other stuff that one doesn't really need to see. On it.source this has proved to be really useful, you can quickly and easily check whether a Page is transcluded or not and where, and check how it looks when it's transcluded, without losing any time searching in the 'What links here' page.
