In itwiki we had complaints because the link editor sometimes displays redirects page as missing pages.
Try doing this:
- Open https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utente:Elitre_(WMF)/Pagina_delle_prove_VE
- Edit it with VisualEditor
- If you write "USA" and then try to create a wl it displays "Stati Uniti d'America" as the first choice and the redirect "USA" as the second choice
- If you write "Faringe" and then try to create a wl to "Cartilagine cricoidea" (which redirects to "Cartilagine cricoide") the wanted page is listed as a missing page and the target page of the "Cartilagine cricoidea" redirect is in blue.
- Select the red link and the word in text appears as a red link
- Save the page and the text is now blue
