Description Jamie Bliss 2004-10-26 23:01:51 UTC
If you move a page to a namespace that would be a talk page (sepperate from 
the main page), it will set up the target to be a article, not a talk page.

title=Talk:PICSim&redirect=no , .../index.php/Spec_Talk:PICSim , 
and .../index.php/Spec_Talk:PICSim for details.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2004-10-26 23:34:44 UTC
I was unable to find any details at the linked page; there is only a question about something called PICSim.

Could you please list the exact sequence of steps necessary to reproduce the problem?
Comment 2 Jamie Bliss 2004-10-26 23:49:54 UTC
I'm sorry, the pages linked ARE the problem.

To reproduce steps:
1. Go to talk page
2. click move tab
3. Move to another talk page (preferabley one for an article).
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2004-10-27 08:08:24 UTC
I cannot find any problem following the described actions on 1.4alpha or 1.3 test wikis.

However there does seem to be a problem with your Spec_Talk: namespace; when visiting a Spec_Talk 
page it shows itself as the 'Article' link, and the plain title as the 'Discussion' link. The first part of this may 
be caused by incorrectly using a space instead of an underscore in the $wgExtraNamespaces definition. I'm 
not sure what would cause the second part unless you've hardcoded this somehow; I can't reproduce that 
part on my test wikis.
Comment 4 Jamie Bliss 2004-10-27 21:42:55 UTC
Ah, that's what's up.

I hadn't set $wgExtraNamespaces, though I did set $wgNamespacesWithSubpages, 
$wgNamespacesToBeSearchedDefault, and 2 I probably shouldn't of ($wgNamespaceNamesEn and the 
constants NS_SPEC & NS_SPEC_TALK).

And yes, the behavior Brion described was what was up.
