Disable Related pages on disambiguation pages
Closed, ResolvedPublic5 Story Points

Description

As a user, even though I appreciate Related pages recommendations on regular articles, when visiting disambiguation pages I don't care to see Related pages recommendations, so that I am less distracted.

Acceptance criteria

  • Pages for the top 10 Wikipedia languages containing known templates (e.g., English's {{Disambiguation}}, German's {{Begriffsklärung}}, and Spanish's {{desambiguación}}) do not invoke any Related pages functionality (e.g., instrumentation, loading, presentation, etc.).

Bonus points: If the known markers can be identified across all projects, cover them all.

Y'all should be able to sign this off by visiting any page listed on Special:DisambiguationPages.

^ Per my review of cea66f6c – we unnecessarily query the DB if $wgRelatedArticlesShowInFooter is falsy.

@phuedx reverting has given me ownership of the patch which is not true, so you may want to reupload it yourself and give it a sanity check before I +2 again.
