Non-mainspace blue-linking not working
Closed, DeclinedPublic


Author: jd027


Occasionally when clicking on a "blue-link" for a namespace other than main (e.g. portal, wikipedia, user, image, etc.) a Wikimedia error message will come up confirming that the site is experiencing technical difficulties. However, there is a way around this, by clicking "back" and typing in the destination into the URL. The page comes up. This does not apply to the article namespace, and it doesn't happen to every link. It also sometimes happens when submitting an edit.

Better known as User:Cool Blue on Wikipedia.
