Description David Nagle 2007-05-16 01:15:56 UTC
I found this bug using a Mediawiki install on another server. I then tested it at the English Wikipedia to 
see if it was still present in the current version.

Bug 218 ( resulted in support for linking to named 
anchors (see

This functionality does not appear to work in my version of Safari, 2.0.4 (419.3). It does work for me in 
Firefox, Camino, and Opera (all on Mac platform).

To replicate bug:
1. Create a test page containing a named anchor redirect. For example, make a Sandbox page contain 
#REDIRECT [[Argentina#History]]
2. Visit the test page in Safari.

Expected outcome: The browser should redirect to the Argentina article and move down to the History 
section, using the named anchor.

Actual outcome: The browser redirects to the Argentina article. It does not move to the named anchor.

This is a bug in Safari (rather the underlying WebKit library). It has been
fixed for some time in WebKit nightly builds, so the fix will presumably
eventually appear in releases from Apple.

Going to mark this as FIXED since there's an upstream fix that, we assume, will become available in the mainstream.
