Special:Unusedtemplates should not list redirects
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: mcdevitd

[[Special:Unusedtemplates]] currently lists unused redirects in the template
namespace, which clogs the listing and makes it less useful. For instance, in,
[[Template:ActiveWiktionaries]] is included, while its target *is* used. There
is no need for any redirects to be listed at all.

Would it not be better if Redirects were wrapped with a CSS-class <span/> like on

Then users could format or inhibit them as they wished, and it would make it easier to
spot redundant template-redirects for culling...

Patch to exclude redirects


Better late than never, r31841.

Note that I've not implemented the suggestions of a span / url parameter. I don't think that it is at all useful for anyone to see redirects as unused templates - at least not on the same page as other unused templates.
