Description Duncan Harris 2006-11-16 11:35:27 UTC
Similar to the Javascript expandable categories.

In [[special:whatlinkshere]]:

A [+] button next to each article that does link there.

Clicking the button reveals all pages that link to the article that links to the
the article.

Expand ad infinitum.

And of course [-] button to collapse it.

To do that in JavaScript would require us to either instigate a possible
infinite loop, or to use AJAX, which could end up with a repetitive and
confusing loop.

It might be more prudent to place a "what links to this page" link on the "what
links here" list, so that one can observe, for instance, that A is linked to
from B, and can opt to view what links to B.

Yes, that might be a better idea easier to implement.  I've filed that as

I think though the bug in its original form may be a long term aim, though there
may be conceptual difficulties to overcome.
