Description Rich Daley 2004-12-04 13:00:46 UTC
Although the nature of this bug is similar to bug #850, it's not identical so I
thought I'd report it separately.

I have set up my user page on Wikinews to be a redirect to my user page on
Wikipedia. This works, to my delight, but there is one snag:

When a redirect is made from one wiki entry to another on the same wiki, a
message appears on the redirected article (saying "redirected from x") with a
link to the article containing the #REDIRECT statement. When a redirect is made
to another wiki, this message doesn't appear, meaning that one would have to
hack the "&redirect=no" to the end of the URL in order to edit the page that is
executing the redirect.

I understand that this is an issue if the redirect is to a non-mediawiki page
(should those even be allowed?) but if it's from one mediawiki page to another
it shouldn't be too difficult to pass the relevant information in the GET or
POST that is used for the redirect.

Alternatively, perhaps interwiki redirects should not be permitted. But that is
probably a sub-optimal solution.

IIANM interwiki redirects have been disabled (in 1.5, I think), so this bug is no longer relevant.
